WHAT’S THE DRESS CODE FOR THE HOPE TAKES FLIGHT SUITCASE PARTY?
Cocktail attire.  Remember, you might be getting on a private jet at 9:00 PM, so dress the part!

SHOULD I PACK A SUITCASE FOR THIS EVENT?
Someone is leaving on a private jet – will it be you?  Think positive and pack your bag like you know you’ll be spending the weekend out of town! Additionally, other trips to local resorts will be awarded that night, so there’s more than one reason to have that suitcase in tow.

HOW DO I KNOW WHAT TO PACK?
The Grand Prize winner will experience 5-star accommodations in New York City including a Broadway show.  There will be time to explore the city, so make sure to pack good walking shoes and dress accordingly.

SHOULD I BRING MY SUITCASE INTO THE PARTY?
Due to space constraints and concerns about party-goers losing their bags, we ask that all guests leave their suitcases in their cars. Don’t worry, the lucky winners will be escorted back to their cars to retrieve their bags prior to departure.

WHERE CAN I PARK?
Complimentary valet will be provided at Signature Flight Support.

HOPE TAKES FLIGHT IS A CHARITY EVENT – IS MY TICKET COST TAX-DEDUCTIBLE?
Yes, but  not 100%. Hope Takes Flight is a charity event, your donation will be partially tax-deductible – you must reduce your tax deduction by the amount of the goods/services you receive. We recommend that you consult a tax professional to discuss these matters in detail.

I PURCHASED TICKETS BUT CAN’T ATTEND THE EVENT – CAN I GET A REFUND?
Our standard policy is that we DO NOT issue refunds or rain checks – all sales are final.
