Your Questions Answered:
Q: Where can I get tickets?
A: Tickets are available at Eventbrite.com (use keyword “Atco”). Please check the “Atco Battles Alzheimer’s 6” Facebook page for any other ticket sale locations.
Q: I purchased tickets for the original date of the event? Are they still good?
A: Yes! Any ticket purchased for the original event -- whether they were purchased online or in person -- are still valid for the new date.
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 6.”
Q: What’s this “cornhole in one” thing about?
A: It’s a new event this year. For $10, you get to toss 4 bags at a cornhole. For each bag you get in the hole, you receive one entry ticket. We will draw one of those tickets, and the lucky ticketholder will get one chance (no warmups) to toss the bag in the cornhole. If successful, they’ll win $10,000! (not a typo)
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 options available.
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: That’s 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: Tickets for children aged 12 and under are $15 as part of the early-bird discount. They'll be $20 after that.
Q: Is the event wheelchair-accessible?
A: Yes it is.
Q: That's a great lineup of bands! How'd you do it?
A: Each band generously donates their time and talents to help make the event a success. We're very fortunate that dozens of bands want to participate in this event, which is how we're able to stage such a fantastic event.
Q: What happens with the money raised?
A: All proceeds are donated to the Alzheimer's Association Delaware Valley Chapter. We are hoping to raise over $20,000 this year.
