2011 Holiday Gala - Correction 

Correction:  The email address to reply to Patrick Heatherington.


There has been a miscommunication on the SBMC website as to the time of the event. Doors (and the bar) open at 6:30 p.m. and the party ends at midnight. The website states 5 p.m. and everyone loves early birds...but the drinks won't be free until 6:30 p.m.


Time is running out! The biggest party of the year is NEXT SATURDAY night! Do you have your tickets yet? We need all tickets to be purchased this weekend as we have to commit to a number with the University Club on Monday to ensure they order enough food. As of now, we're already over 100 tickets sold and only have room for 120 guests, so don't miss out. You can go to and purchase tickets directly from the home page. Many members (myself included) have done so, it is completely safe and secure and your name is immediately added to the list. If you have any questions please contact me immediately.


Also, the hotel block is filling up fast. When I called Monday I found out that our special rate of $89.99 they only have 5 rooms with king beds left in the entire hotel, of which I was able to get 3 added to our block (we were almost full). This will be the location of the after party so call the Crown Plaza and make your reservation immediately, reference Southside Business Men's Club.
