Your Questions Answered:
Q: Where can I get tickets?
A: Tickets will available at Eventbrite.com (use keyword “Atco”). Tickets will go on sale on Friday, Feb. 11, starting at 8 am. This is the only location for tickets. Please do not buy tickets from people advertising on Facebook or other social media sites. This has happened previously, and the majority of the times these were scams.
Q: Can I bring my own chair?
A: Yes! You can bring single-seat, fold-up, camp-style chairs and small pop-up tents. There will also be a limited number of chairs and tables available for seating.
Q: Can I reserve a table?
A: Unfortunately, we cannot reserve tables.
Q: Can I take pictures or video at the event?
A: Yes, you can! Feel free to post your pictures on our Facebook Page, “Atco Battles Alzheimer’s 8.”
Q: Will food and drink be available for purchase?
A: Yes! There will be a full bar, pop-up bar and "drink tubs." There will also be various food trucks available. No outside food or beverages will be allowed.
Q: Do I need to bring cash?
A: Yes. The food and beverage stands will be able to process credit/debit cards, as will the silent auctions. The ticket raffles and cornhole event will be cash only.
Q: I’m a really cheap bastard, and I’m going to sneak my own alcohol into the event. Why is that a problem?
A: The liquor license that the Flying W holds strictly prohibits any alcohol being brought onto the premises. If you are caught with your own alcohol, you’ll be asked to leave, and no refund will be given. Don’t be so cheap.
Q: There's always a great lineup of bands, but I don’t want to see all of them. Will there be half-day tickets available?
A: No, sorry. Your ticket gets you admission to event, and a great day of music.
Q: Will there be children’s tickets available?
A: At this point, all tickets will cost the same; there will be no children's ticket designation.
Q: Is the event wheelchair-accessible?
A: Yes it is.
Q: What happens with the money raised?
A: We are presently in the process of setting up our own charitable foundation to oversee how the money is spent. All proceeds will hope local families in South Jersey. We are hoping to raise over $30,000 this year and we greatly appreciate your generosity in buying tickets and supporting the event.
Q: Will there be a limited number of tickets available, like at previous events?
A: Most probably there will be limited tickets available. However, everything is dependent on government regulations. Last year, we were limited to 750 attendees, and we sold out in 3 1/2 days. Hopefully, the regulations in place this year will allow us to have a larger crowd.
