FAQ for New Year's Eve at Marriott Redmond Town Center event on Friday, December 31st 2010
What Do I need to bring with me if I purchase Tickets online?
A: Your ID and your printed receipt from where you purchased tickets (Sulekha, Clubzone or bollygrooves.blogspot.com or other online websites) so we can check it against our master purchasing list.
We encourage that all persons must be present at the time of check-in, for example, if you have purchased 4 tickets, all 4 people must be present at the time of check-in with you - if not then we will hand the purchaser of the tickets all the passes and it is their responsibility to hand the passes over to their party if they are not present at the time of check-in.
Tickets/passes will only be handed to the person whose name is on the master list and checks in with proper ID and receipt. The purchaser will be responsible to pass the tickets to the people in his/her party. We cannot hold spots under your purchases at the door for people whose name is not on the master sheet even if you have any number of people showing up later. The person who is on the purchaser master list must be present with ID and their receipt to gain admission and/or receive passes.
How Should I dress, what is the attire requirement?
We ask no Hats, no Jeans and no sweats no sneakers. For men, we ask you wear a suit/coat dress shirt slacks as this is semi-formal (not full formal so no need for ties etc.)
For women: Indian formal wear: Sari, Lengha, Salwar Kameez, American dress or nice suit pants outfit (no jeans, no casual wear). Dressing up is highly encouraged. We also ask you wear a Masquerade mask to participate in the festivities, if you can not find one, we will have several ready to purchase for the prices of $3-$5/each.

Yes, and you must book childcare arrangements in advance by the 29th of December. We have access to very top qualified & certified babysitters. You will have to call 206.251.6377 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to get details on the babysitting service – care will be available from 9 PM – 1 AM and will be at a playroom not very far from the main ballroom (children are NOT allowed in the main ball room) A security guard will be outside of the playroom as well so that only parents of the children are allowed inside. All children must be dropped off by no later than 10 PM and picked up by 1 AM.
We are only accepting children who are the ages of 1- 11 (years of age).

Send a deposit via paypal to email@example.com via credit or check. Putting in your fee and filling out the form (sending it back signed via fax will guarantee your childcare/babysitter and child’s activities).

We encourage you to ask your friends to join in on babysitting as it will become more cost effective.

Can we get a refund if we decide not to go?
A: NO, once tickets are purchased refunds are not allowed whatsoever - all purchases are final and since we sell out every year, it's very hard for us to keep track of who did not attend or will attend.
