By this time you should have received the tickets for Diwali Dinner for the entire table or individual seats that you have booked. If you still have not received the tickets, please do the following:
Check your junk email folder to find the email - It should have a subject - "Your Tickets for Diwali Dinner - Festival of Lights" If you still cannot find the email, please contact the committee so that we can ensure that you receive the tickets for you and your guests before the event.
Please note the following:
Tickets will be accepted in a printed form or guests can bring it on a smart phone.
An easy way is to take a screenshot of the tickets on your phone and text / Whatsapp it to the other members of the table.
KEEP IN MIND THAT THE TICKETS HAVE SERIAL NUMBERS ON THEM. ONCE THE TICKET IS SCANNED, IT CANNOT BE REUSED. So if the same ticket is accidentally distributed to 2 members, the first guest will gain entry and the latter will not. It is very important that the table heads distribute the tickets diligently so that there is no duplication.
There will be no additional tickets at the venue, so if you or your guests show up without the tickets, their entry will be delayed until the head of the table is able to provide them the tickets that have not been scanned previously.
To prevent any confusion during the event, please follow the above steps and contact GSCFL if there are any questions. 407-468-0716 | 407-924-7015 | 863-651-4418
