Hi Folks,

 

We were having problems with Paypal’s button under a new account I set up for Premier.  They said the issue was fixed, but apparently it isn’t. 

 

I’ve changed the button to the old one, so everything is working normally…I just bought 8 tickets myself to test it.  Give it a try and let me know if you have any problems this time.

 

Much appreciated!  Cheers!

$200 - for presentation and buffet dinner

 

Tables for dinner are eight seats, so $1,600.00...you'll also get a reserved table with your logo.

 

Sponsored tables of eight are $2,000.00...please contact me directly on this (sparsad@pdh-inc.com)...your logo will appear as an event sponsor on all printed material and powerpoint screens.

I look forward to seeing everyone again next year and want all of the organizers to know how much their hard work is appreciated - and I know is also appreciated by the great cause they are supporting.
