2016 Holiday Party

Once again we plan to join the Hiking Mates 9th Annual Holiday Party. Our member, George, is the Event Organizer from the Hiking Mates.  

The food is being provided by Mazzone Hospitality and the details are:

Food: Custom Cocktail Reception w/ cheese / hummus, crackers and finger foods with hot food / pasta stations. *This is a lite fare menu, not a full dinner.

Beverages: A cash bar will be available in our Ballroom along with a full attended bar located in the hotel.

Price: $ 35.00 includes, food, DJ, room rental and all taxes and gratuities.

RSVP: Tuesday, December 6, 2016. It is a busy time of year and last minute rsvp's will be accepted, however, please rsvp maybe if you think you may have a last minute change. This hotel is under new management and they are very accommodating and would like this event to be a success for all. So, let's not have 100 people rsvp at the last minute. We should have an accurate count on December 6th with minimal last minute rsvp's.

Dress: Dress to impress!! Wear your finest dressy holiday attire.

Payment: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=AEFR2GN6SX6W6

Rooms: A verbal price of $109.00 for our group. If you are coming from out of town or if you'd rather not drive afterward, the Hilton Garden Inn is offering us a reduced rate for rooms. I will have more information on this in then next few weeks.

More details will follow as the time gets closer, so please save the date for a fun night with fun friends.
