Join Rick Braun as he hosts this one of a kind New Year's Eve celebration with a different set of top contemporary jazz headliners each year.  This years headliners are....Mr. Rick Braun, Jeffrey Osborne (yes, THAT Jeffrey Osborne), favorite saxaphonist Richard Elliot, of course since we have a Paris theme we had to bring Marc Antoine to open up the 12/31 show, and to Start the Party Early on 12/30 we have the talented Vincent Ingala to get us rolling at an optional concert! This is going to bring the house down!
On Thursday, December 30th (optional casual concert, limited seating, prices $40.50 for VIP and $30.50 for GA)

ALL seating, VIP and General Admission, to Start the Party Early on 12/30 will be reserved.  So no lines to wait in!
A link to purchase these tickets will be provided with your confirmation email from the 12/31 gala.
Bring your tickets (the ones attached to your confirmation email when you purchase tickets) for entry to all events – so bring them; we scan them, and in you go!  We will have a table at registration for those of you who forget your tickets. 
We are offering an OPTIONAL meal for purchase which will be a salad, entrée (beef, chicken, and vegetarian selections), and dessert.  There will not be food available for purchase at the event, just beverages.  So order dinner when you get your tickets to Start the Party Early so that you can relax and enjoy!

On Friday, December 31st

To insure everyone gets what they want to eat on 12/31, when you order your tickets you will be asked how many of each type of entrée you want.  The entrees are beef (short rib), salmon, and vegetarian.  So ask your friends, if you are buying their tickets, what they want for dinner before you purchase!  We can change it later, but it will be easy if you know when you order. 
Beverages, including wine by the bottle, will be available for purchase.
Again, we will be scanning your tickets (the ones attached to your confirmation email when you purchase tickets) for entry to all events – so bring them; we scan them, and in you go!  We will have a table at registration for those of you who forget your tickets. 
At the reception we will have a Parisian Martini and Cocktail Bar for some great specialty drinks we picked for you that tie in with our theme.  The French 75 Signature Drink will be available at all bars throughout the evening.
For fun, this year we will have event tee shirts available for purchase in both women’s and men’s styles.  When you order your tickets, you can order your tee shirts (with a sample and sizing chart included) and we will have a table in the hotel  lobby on 12/30 and 12/31 where you can pick them up!  Prices are $25 and extended sizes $35. 
We are offering a Payment Plan for 3 or 6 month payments - see below for information on that process.
