Tickets for the general reception and dinner are $75, but  if we receive the money by August 31 it will cost $65. (If mailed, the envelope with the check or credit card number must be postmarked by August 31, and if by PayPal, the transaction must have taken place by August 31.) If you are a sustaining member of SDDC, your tickets will be half price. If you volunteer to help during the dinner, your tickets will also be half price. SDDC sponsoring members receive free tickets to the general reception and dinner. To find out about volunteer opportunities, call Paige at (619) 640-7490 or email

Tickets for the VIP reception are $100. A VIP reception ticket does not get you into the general reception and dinner. If you sell a table of ten for the dinner, you will be able to attend the VIP reception for free.

If you cannot afford $65 for the general reception and dinner, please contact us at or leave a message at (858) 496-3312 and we will see if we can find someone to sponsor you. If you would like to contribute to the SDDC so someone can go to the dinner, we would be grateful.
