Early predictions about the 2013 Bishop’s Gala featuring Emmy & Grammy Award-Winning Comedian & Actor Steve Martin are nothing short of being true as early reports are already showing indications of this year’s event to be a sell out.
“The amount of pre-sold tickets this far in advance of the event date surpasses all other years by far,” shared Rosemary Tarangioli, Senior Advancement Officer. “Invitations haven’t even gone out yet and sales continue to come in every day just by word of mouth!”
This year’s event is set to take place on Saturday, February 2, 2013 at the Hilton Anatole Hotel’s Chantilly Ballroom. The evening will be packed with the traditional favorites including a seated dinner, live auction and big board auction, heads and tails contest, raffle prize drawing, live entertainment and much more. This year brings new features as well including a wine pull contest, an “upgraded” Meet the Need Wall, and Dallas event favorite — a digital photo booth compliments of FlickerStage. This new tech-saavy version of the traditional wedding photo booth will be sure to bring a whole new level of fun to this year’s event, as guests can simply grab the remote and snap as many photos as they like. Images are instantly uploaded to our event online gallery where guests can download, share online anywhere including Facebook & Twitter, or even order prints of the photos you love! More information about FlickerStage can be found at www.flickerstage.com.
Tickets are available for purchase online as well as by phone, and supporters are encouraged to not wait much longer.
Tarangioli explained, “It feels early to some – but I assure you it’s not. Some supporters who attend every year will wait to buy tickets closer to the event, but I will continue to stress to not wait any longer. Buy Tickets Now!”
Staff throughout the agency show excitement about this year’s event, but all relayed the same message of concern about tickets sharing that as a precaution they are already explaining to supporters that there is no guarantee tickets will still be available past Christmas. Oh boy! So those who want to be sure to see Steve Martin and enjoy a night of food, fun, friends and laughter better finalize plans to attend and visit www.ccdallas.org/Gala today!
