A FEW THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT THE 2020 CASINO ROYALE GALA

THIS YEAR THERE ARE TWO DINNER SEATING OPTIONS!
In order to ensure the perfect evening, we will be offering the choice between two dinner time slots for Gala guests to choose from; one from 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. and one from 8:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. Each seating will enjoy an identical guest experience, including a word from UFPA Director Brian Jose and a performance by pianist Jasmin Arakawa. After purchasing your ticket(s), we will contact you in order to record your dining time preference.

This update to the dining experience will provide Casino Royale Gala guests with:

  • More space and flexibility at each seating!
    • Enjoy a less crowded dining area during your meal.
    • No need to stress about finding a table, there will be ample room at each seating. Simply take your pick along with your date, friends, and/or guests!
    • Seating will not be assigned in advance.
  • A more comfortable experience on the casino floor!
    • With more than one dinner seating, we’ve made it easier for you to choose whether to dine early and gamble the night away or work up an appetite at the blackjack table!
    • Additionally, two dining times will ease congestion on the casino floor and make it easier for you to optimize your time at the gaming tables.
