Common Event Questions

 WHAT IS MY JOB AS A TABLE CAPTAIN?

Row to the Future Table Captains are our most cherished supporters. Table Captains keep their friends and family informed about the event and exciting program milestones. Each Table Captain is expected to fill at least one table of 10 (you plus 9 guests) at the event.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO ATTEND THE BREAKFAST?

One ticket to the Breakfast is $50. A table seats 10, so the cost of a table is $500. However, Table Captains do not have to pay for their whole table. Most guests register online themselves and indicate that you are their Table Captain for seating.

 

WHAT IF I HAVE More or Fewer than 9 guests?

More Guests: Due to the capacity of the room, tables of 11 or 12 are not available. We will do our best to accommodate overflow guests with nearby seating.

Fewer Guests: No problem! Staff will fill any extra seats with individual registrants or overflow guests from another Table Captain. If you do have additional guests at your table, we appreciate your help in making them feel welcome!

 

HOW DO I submit my table guest list?

There are a number of ways you can submit your guest list:

.

HOW MUCH OF MY TICKET PRICE IS TAX-DEDUCTIBLE?

$20 of your $50 ticket is tax-deductible. All guests will receive a tax acknowledgment with the necessary information to claim their contribution to the IRS. If you have any questions, please email ksenia@pocockfoundation.org.

 

WHAT IF I HAVE A GUEST WITH DIETARY RESTRICTIONS?

Please let us know when you register your guests, either by indicating in our online form or by telling Ksenia when you email her. We can accommodate most dietary restrictions, including: vegetarian/vegan, gluten-free, and nut/shellfish allergies.
