    Hello, I just signed up to attend the event tonight. I will be coming straight from work and I'm wearing sandals. Is it imperative that I wear closed toe shoes? If yes, I'll attend next time. Thanks!

    • Lori

      It is preferred that closed-toed shoes are worn, but only required for some tasks--so please come tonight! We're happy you'll be joining us!
