Gala Q&A


A “Tricky Tray” is a basket raffle where attendees purchase raffle tickets and put them in bags near the items they wish to win. This year, participants may purchase 3 different levels of raffle tickets: Red, White and Grand. Our Red Level Prizes are valued up to $299. The White Level Prizes are valued between $300-$999 and the Grand prizes are valued at over $1000!!!

Guests may divide and drop their tickets however they wish, so long as the correct level ticket matches the correct level prize bag (for example, Red tickets must be dropped for Red prizes only). The prizes will be divided into their 3 different categories and placed in sections around Edgewood Country Club. Participants will travel to each section and drop tickets in the bags next to the prizes they wish to win. As a tip, the more tickets you purchase for a certain prize, the higher the chances of winning the prize. At the end of the night, gala prize chairs will pick tickets from each prize bag, run the prizes to your table and, hopefully, you will go home with a prize! We have lots or prizes, as we wish to see almost  everyone have a chance to win!

A table captain is the person who organizes their group’s table whether it be full or not. This way we know who wants to sit with one another. You will be asked for the name of your table captain when registering for the event. If you do not have a table captain, you may put your own name down! The table captain will receive notification when their members register for the table and receive the ticket admission packets and labels for their group. Table captains will then hand out these packets to their group.

We have an amazing volunteer who will put together tables of people  with children around the same grade. Don’t have a  big group? Don’t worry! You will still have a blast  and will get to know new people!

We are working on the best way for people to have an opportunity to buy their raffle tickets in advance. More information will be coming out soon!!!

There are so many ways to help leading up to the event and day of! Please check out our SignUp Genius to volunteer.

Tables and Seating

You will find out your table seating the night of the event at registration. But during the registration process you will be asked for the name of your table lead, families you are friendly with or grades of your children to help as we coordinate seating.

No worries! Just put in a few families you know or your children’s grade when asked during registration and we will do our best to seat you with people with children in similar grades.

Given the last few years we understand that we may not all know people. Just put in your child(ren)’s grade and we will do our best to seat you with people from similar grades.

Easy! Tell everyone who you want to sit with to put you as the table lead when prompted during registration.

We are seating tables of 10. That being said, we can accommodate tables of 12.
