Tickets for the event are already on sale and can be bought at the Club; Jacobs Jewellery and Pawn Shop at 16 Pike Street, Kitty; Star Party Rentals at 21 Craig Street, Campbellville, and Exotic Prints at 43 Norton Street, Lodge.
Persons can all also contact the club on 225-6509 for tickets.

There is the take-away option, however those desirous of outdoor dining would have to do so under strict COVID-19 protocols.
