Payment FAQ

How do I receive the total on purchases and donations I made throughout the evening?

Our staff will be traveling the day after the event. Within a few days, we will close out the event and you will receive a final invoice listing all of your transactions at the event, along with a payment link. This will give you the opportunity to review all of your purchases and notify us if anything is in error, prior to payment. If you would like to pay by another method or split your payment, please contact
