Reunion Tickets

Reunion tickets are now available! 

The tickets are $28 per person and include cocktail hour, small plate dinner and dessert.  There will be a cash bar.

Thanks to the generosity of 22 of our classmates, we have the funds for the costs of the reunion incidentials; room rental and setup, the website, and other miscellanous charges.  This allowed Reunion tickets to be lower priced and only reflect the cost of the catered food. 

You can only purchase tickets through the website and it must be with a credit card. The last date to purchase tickets will be Friday May 27, 2022. No tickets will be available at the door.

The link to purchase tickets is in the top left corner of the website: 50th Class Reunion Tickets.  Click on the link and follow the directions to purchase your ticket.  We will check you in at the door the night of the Reunion.  You will have the opportunity to also purchase a ticket for your guest while you are purchasing your ticket.  Please provide the guest's name as the website will generate name tags for both of you.  

Purchase you tickets now and start spreading the word to all of our classmates!


Hotels for the Reunion

The following hotels are in close proximity to the Oasis Shrine Temple at 604 Doug Mays Place Charlotte, NC 28262.  We have no group rates available as we could not guarentee a minimum number of rooms. Prices range from $85 to $200 per night plus tax. DO NOTE THAT MOST HOTELS ARE EXPERIENCING STAFF SHORTAGES LEADING TO SOME CUSTOMER DISSATISFACTION.  I have added the Google Review Summary totals for each hotel.
