Things to consider when submitting your RSVP:

  • Our venue has a capacity limit and priority will be given to those that sign up first.  There is a strong chance that our event will sell out so we encourage submitting your RSVP early.
  • Although a deadline for RSVP submissions is indicated, submitting a RSVP does not guarantee entry to our event since we may reach maximum capacity in our venue.
  • After submitting a RSVP, you will receive an email from the AACC indicating that your RSVP has either been accepted or put on a waitlist.  Notification emails are sent out on a weekly basis.
  • If your RSVP was accepted and guest tickets were requested, you must complete your transaction with payment by Sunday, May 8, 2022.  Once completed, you will receive a confirmation email with details on the event. Failure to comply may result in forfeiting your RSVP and being placed on a waitlist.
  • If your RSVP indicates that you were put on a waitlist, we will contact you in the order that your reservation came in to let you know if we can accomodate you and/or your party.
