ONLINE RESERVATION AND GIFT AUCTION TICKET SALES
This is the greatest show and it is not to be missed. Don’t delay – make your reservations online soon. The deadline for accepting reservations is October 10th. Please be sure to provide cell phone and email addresses when you register online.
For individuals not part of a pre-established group:
If you are not planning to sit with a particular group, you can simply purchase your individual ticket online at www.cbo.io/assumption/tix. You will need to enter your First and Last Name, your email address, your cell number and under “Make a selection” please enter your child’s grade so we can do our best to seat you with other moms in your child’s grade. Your Gift Auction tickets can be purchased here as well.
For guests to be seated with a pre-established group:
(1) Please nominate one of the group members to be the “Table Captain” who will be your group’s liaison with the Reservations Committee. Make sure everyone in your group knows the agreed upon Table Captain as it is needed when you register. Each table can accommodate up to 10 guests. You may also set up a group of less than 10. Your group will be seated with another group to complete the table.
(2) Individuals may purchase their own ticket online at www.cbo.io/assumption/tix. You will need to enter your First and Last name, your email address, your cell number and under
“Make a selection” please enter your Table Captain’s name. Your Gift Auction tickets can be purchased here as well.
(3) We encourage online purchasing but individuals preferring to pay by cash or check payable to “Assumption HSA” may still do so. Please remit your payment to your Table Captain so it can be sent with your Table’s Reservation form. Reservations must be paid in full before they can be processed.
(4) IMPORTANT: Each Table Captain must still complete a hardcopy Reservation Form and backpack it to the Reservations Committee. This will help us ensure that each guest is seated at the requested table. If someone in your group will be paying for their individual ticket online, please make a note of that on your Table’s Reservation Form. Likewise, if someone in your group has paid by cash or check, please make note of payment on the form and enclose the cash or check when you submit it.
Please note the following regarding ALL reservations:
- Reservations must be paid in full at the time of the request- no exceptions!
- This special night is for “ladies only” and all guests must be over 18 years of age.
- Reservations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
- The cost for this year’s Dinner and Fashion Show is $75 per reservation. Your table, group, or individual reservation will not be processed until payment in full is received for all members of your group.
- For those who are setting up groups or tables for seating, a table/group Captain must be selected to verify payment and submit the completed Reservation Form to ensure that your group remains together.
Your cancelled check or emailed receipt will be confirmation that your reservation has been received. Checks should be made payable to “Assumption H.S.A.” Please note that, if for any reason you cannot attend, your reservation fee will not be refunded to you. Please contact us with any questions.

OFF PREMISE SALES FOR GRAND RAFFLE
Off Premise Sales provides an easy way to sell your grand raffle tickets. If you want to be a part of spreading the excitement about our event in our community, please volunteer for Off-Premise Sales. By selling grand raffle tickets at church or local stores you can easily sell your initial raffle books (and more!) in only a couple of hours. Let’s break grand raffle sale records – give it a try! It is a great way to volunteer. Complete instructions are provided and the Off Premise Committee members are available to answer any questions.
Remember that each book sold is a chance for your child to win a prize in the Weekly Prize Patrol, and every two books sold earns your child a ticket for the Mini Gift Auction! Both are fun events for the kids to be part of but you have to sell your books to be entered for a chance to win.
Please sign-up using the link below and indicate your youngest child’s name and homeroom in the Comment Section.
Thank you in advance for selling and supporting Assumption School!
