    Date: Friday, December 9th   7:00-11:00 pm

    Food: Custom Cocktail Reception w/ cheese / hummus, crackers and finger foods with hot food / pasta stations.

    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.

    To purchase tickets please click on the link below:

    Rooms: I was quoted 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.

    Desserts: As we have done in the past, please feel free to bring a dessert to share! We will have a table set up for all the wonderful treats that you slaved over a hot oven to bake for all your fellow party goers!!
