We are issuing entry tickets For the Friday charity event simply to control the amount of people who attend, as over-crowding has been a concern for many who have attended in the past. A maximum of 200 tickets will be sold. 100% of the ticket cost will go to assist Team G (Bryan and Deb Kelly, and their grandson, Gordon) in their continuing efforts to fight juvenile diabetes.
