I bought my tickets online. Will tickets be mailed to me? Do I need a paper ticket to get in to the banquet?
No. Physical (paper) tickets are not needed to gain entry to the awards banquet. As long as you bought your ticket, your name will be on our guest list. Upon arrive at the Kellogg Center, stop at the OEF table at the entrance to the banquet room. We'll check your vaccination status, give you your name name tag, table assignment, and a parking voucher. Not sure if your name is on our list? Email OEF Board Chair and we'll double-check.

Where should I park?
Park in the Kellogg Center's attached parking garage. You will receive a parking voucher when you check in at the banquet and this will cover the parking fee charged by the garage.

Will I receive a receipt for the charitable portion of the ticket price?
The actual cost of banquet ticket exceeds the individual ticket price, so no part of the ticket price is a donation to the Okemos Education Foundation. We are grateful to our business and individual sponsors who allow us to continue to present the OEF Annual Awards Banquet at a reasonable cost.

Can my food allergy be accommodated?
Please let us know about your dietary needs when you order your ticket (or email OEF Board Chair). We will do our best to work with the Kellogg Center to meet your needs.
