    Hi, Debbie. I don't know about the 5pm vs 6pm, hmmmm. I was forwarded the announcement email by a friend, and just reformatted it for Meetup. I hadn't heard anything at all about being required to stay for dinner ... or are you referring to the cocktail party / auction thing afterwards?

    Just went on the Mission Hills Country Club website and it said that the concert was @5 p.m, not 6. Also, are you also "required" to have dinner at the Country club or can you just be there for the concert??
