No Show & Late Cancellation Policy for Free Ticket Opportunities
There are many generous organizations that give us free or greatly discounted tickets. We have wonderful volunteers who make time in their busy schedules to help us. We could not give our families the exciting opportunities that we do without this support.
Many of the organizations that give us tickets track how many of the tickets we use. If we don’t use a high enough percentage, they stop giving us tickets. If a volunteer comes to an event and the child, they were assigned to doesn’t come, next time we may not have enough volunteers. Most of the Friendship Circle families are responsible about RSVP’ing and only cancelling in case of illness. A few families are putting our activities at risk for the others.
We understand that there are emergencies that occur. From now on, with the exception of illness or a genuine emergency ( an emergency is NOT, “I forgot it’s my friend’s birthday” “Someone offered me tickets to X”), if you sign up for 2 events and cancel with less than 1 week’s notice, to sign up for future events, you will need to give us a credit card, you will be charged for the full price of the event if you are a no show.
