Frequently Asked Questions
I’m from out of town. Do you have any ideas for where I can stay?
There are a lot of hotel options in the Orlando area so feel free to check. We have secured a room block for the weekend of Sept 28-30 at the Alfond Inn in Winter Park if you would like to stay there. Use the code WPHS1998 on their website or call to book and the rate will be $239 per night.
I would like to sponsor but I would like to make an in-kind donation. Would that work?
Please email us firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll discuss. If you we can use what you’re able to donate for one or more of the events, we would love your help! Thank you!
What if I sent in a reunion deposit?
First of all, thank you for sending us a deposit! That helped us secure the venue! Please use the Ticket Form and purchase your ticket(s) using the Venmo or Mail in Check option. Then, send us the amount minus the amount of your deposit amount and mention it in the comments. If you have questions, just email at email@example.com.
What do you I get for the ticket price?
The events page lists out what’s included in the reunion weekend ticket. All of the events on Friday, September 28 and Saturday, September 29 are included in your ticket price.
Why was the Winter Park Racquet Club chosen for the main event?
We heard you (our classmates) when you said you wanted to have our events in Winter Park. It is a gorgeous venue on Lake Maitland with amazing sunsets. The Racquet Club agreed to waive the facility rental fee (normally $5000) and they also waived having the minimum for the event. Other venues had a minimum of $10K and $20K depending on the date chosen. Other venues, such as, Casa Feliz, the Women’s Club and Capen House are much smaller venues and couldn’t accommodate an event of our size.
See what we did there? We are the class of 1998! 🙂 The ticket price just about covers the event at the Winter Park Racquet Club. We plan on covering the food at the other events with sponsorships and donations. The breakdown for the event at the Racquet Club is buffet dinner $42 per person, 4 hours open bar $30 per person, plus tax and service charge that’s $92 per person. The remaining $6 per person plus donations and sponsorships will help us pay for the food at the other events as well as decorations, music and other incidentals.
Why are there different ticket prices?
Planning an event like this takes a lot of money and up front costs. We will need to pay the venue before the event as well as other vendors. We want to encourage you to buy your tickets as early as possible. It actually makes our lives easier…as we are all volunteers who are excited to organize our reunion!
Will there be tickets available at the door?
We will only have a limited number of tickets available at the door to ensure we have enough food and drinks for everyone in attendance so we advise you to buy your ticket as soon as possible.
I have a question about attire for the Saturday night event.
We’re recommending cocktail attire. Suits are not required.
What if I can’t afford to attend?
Please reach out to us via email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know your situation. We will keep this confidential and use funds from donations or sponsorships to pay for your ticket to attend. We want every classmate who wants to attend to be able to attend. Unfortunately, we will not be able to help with travel expenses.
Please drink responsibly. We want everyone to have fun and stay safe during reunion weekend. Feel free to use ridesharing services like Lyft or Uber. (Brand new to Lyft or Uber? Click on the links to get $5 off your first ride.)
