We are also introducing our VABC Tickets which are how we are tracking our alcohol and food purchases, they serve two purposes: first, to keep us in compliance with our alcohol distribution and secondly the proceeds from these tickets go directly to our charity benefactors! Ticket booths will be located throughout the event just look for OATH and Operation Phantom Support and they’ll be more than happy to take care of your ticket needs! Each VABC Ticket is only $2.00 and can be redeemed at any alcohol or food vendor to make a purchase.
