MAY 2ND DINE AND DANCE AND SILENT AUCTION

‎Good Day All Parents
As the clock is ticking away for the May 2 Dine and Dinner for parents committee fund-raiser  we do need to have a quick idea of actual ticket sales to determine whether we should continue forward with this event‎.
At this moment only 33 tickets have been paid for, 48 tickets have been handed out to cadets either last night or in the last few weeks so if you haven’t received your 2 tickets/cadet then please email me and then there is still 32 tickets that have not been distributed to cadets as of last night. Plus additional tickets are still available.
 
I have received the menu from Tony the owner of The Overtime Lounge and he has asked for our final number by sun apr26 so we do require an estimated number of sold or intended sale of tickets asap.
If ticket sales are below 100 sold tickets it may be in our best interests to cancel event and go forward with a silent auction of all the Donations we have currently received at our ACR‎ on June 6.
Again immediate attention is required
Any other questions please email me at marci22@telus.net or mkieswetter@quantumplus.ca
Thank You
