Historic Tour of Carnegie Hall

I arranged for a historic private tour of Carnegie Hall. The tour will take place at noon on Saturday, February 22nd. However, I am asking members to arrive at 11:45 so that we can promptly start at noon. The tour should be about 75 minutes in length.

The cost of the tour is as follows: Payment must be collected one week prior to the tour. If you do not make payment ahead of time your RSVP will be changed to a NO. You can pay in one of two of the following ways: Mail me a check or cash with a note which will have your name on it to the following address: John Ciferni, 799 Mountain Avenue Unit B, Springfield, New Jersey, 07081.

Or you can pay using the Venmo application via IPHONE. The app is free and you can download it onto your phone. This will enable you to send me direct payment from your IPHONE if you wish to attend the event and want to avoid sending money in the mail. I will still need payment by next Friday, Feb 14th. You can find me under my organizer name while using this application. I also have the same photo as my meetup picture on the Vemo site. My number is[masked] and you might have to imput this as a contact in your phone before you can make a payment. Again, just send me an email once you sent your payment so I can look for your information.

General Admission $10.00

Seniors and Students $8.00

Children $3.00

***As always, I will collect a $1.00 meetup fee from each member when you arrive for the tour.

After the tour, those who wish to join me for lunch and drinks are welcome. I will look for a local resturant close to Carnegie Hall.

      You can pay using the Venmo application on an IPHONE if you do not want to send money in the mail. Carnegie Hall does not take money from individuals on the tour. I got confirmation of this today.

    Hi John,

    Why was my status changed to not going when I sent you the $10 via Venmo and you acknowledged receipt of the payment? Please either change my status or refund my payment. Thanks.
