Frequently Asked Questions

Will I receive a paper ticket?

No, there are no paper tickets. Once we receive your ticket purchase online or through the mail, we add you to our guest list. When you arrive at the event you can check-in, using your last name, to receive your name badge with bidding number and seating assignment. Couples with different last names will be assigned to the primary purchaser (if confused, just ask at check-in). This is the same for guests of table hosts or sponsors. If we have received your name as a guest, you will have your individual name badge ready for you at check-in.

Is a portion of my ticket tax deductible?

Yes, a portion of each ticket includes a tax deductible donation ($100 for early bird tickets, $150 after October 15). Your ticket confirmation can serve as your receipt for tax purposes. If you purchase tickets online, you will receive an email confirmation. If you send in a check, you will receive a mailed letter.

What is the address of the Minneapolis Armory Event Center?

500 South 6th Street, Minneapolis, MN 55415. Find it on Google Maps.

What entrance should I use at the Armory?

The event entrance is through the main Armory doors at 500 South 6th Street.

Where should I park?

We encourage you to use the valet parking available at the main entrance on 500 South 6th Street. Attendants will park and retrieve your car from the Armory’s underground parking garage for $18. HCMC staff with contracted parking, may choose to remain parked in the HCMC ramp just a block away. Otherwise there are several parking lot options and mass transit.

What should I wear?

Black tie is admired but not required. We understand many guests will be attending right after work, so business and cocktail attire are appropriate for the evening. Unlike last year when we were on stadium turf, high heels are fine at this venue.

Who will be at this event?

A wonderful combination of community members, philanthropists, corporate sponsors, staff, board members, and patients with family and friends will celebrate HCMC.

Will I be asked to make a donation?

Yes and you’ll have fun doing it. We have planned several traditional and unique opportunities during the evening to be generous. Come prepared to spend cash on games of chance like our wine pull, raffles, and gift card wall. Our silent and live auctions are especially curated for our guests. A special appeal will raise support for resuscitation technology and training.

How can I pay for my purchases and donations that evening?

Credit card, debit card, check, and cash are welcome payment methods for auction purchases and donations. Due to Minnesota gambling laws, all gambling games are restricted to cash or debit card payments. ATMs will be available.

Are there assigned seats?

Yes, your seat assignment will be presented to you at time of check-in. Couples, sponsors, and table guests will be seated together. You may indicate who you would like to sit with during your online registration.

What is being served for dinner?

The menu includes: fresh baked bread, seasonal salad & soup, beef & chicken duet, butternut squash ravioli with browned sage butter, grilled asparagus and roasted potato trio. The vegetarian entree is Portobello and available upon request. All items are gluten free except the ravioli. You may share any dietary restrictions during your online registration.

I can't make it December 2, but I would like to support this important effort. Where can I make a donation?

We’re sorry you can't attend. We welcome your donation in support of cardiac resuscitation or the mission of HCMC at: http://LUTN2017donation.kintera.org/
