TICKETING POLICIES: To give participants a chance to check out the options and make up parties, please review the Dinner is Served website at www.nvoh.org/DIS. Participants are encouraged to print out the order form and fax or mail it before seats officially go on sale on December 4. Restaurants with more requests for reservations than seats available will be allocated on the morning of December 4. Larger orders are given priority over smaller ones. Therefore participants are encouraged to make the event a party by signing up for all the seats a restaurant has offered. Ties will be broken by drawing lots. After December 4, sales will revert to first-come, first-served for the remaining seats.
The League is issuing plaques this year to the restaurants, reflecting their "Dinner is Served" participation over the last 10 years. A few will proudly show a perfect 10. They are a token of appreciation for consistent support of the Napa Valley Opera House and this fund raiser. We hope the restaurants will hang them with pride and that the public will look for them.
Be a part of Dinner is Served 2010 and eat out for the Napa Valley Opera House. For more information and to receive the reservation form, please go to www.nvoh.org/DIS or call 707.603.2333.
