FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
Whatever makes you feel your fanciest! There's no specific dress code, but this is a ball after all, so feel free to dust off a costume, cocktail dress, or your best formal wear. We just encourage you to come dressed to party, whatever that means to you!
WHAT IS CYSTIC FIBROSIS?
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common fatal genetic disease affecting children and young adults in Canada. It is a multi-system disorder that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system, ultimately resulting in premature death for the majority of people with cystic fibrosis. There is no cure.
Visit Cystic Fibrosis Canada for more information about CF.
WHAT AGE GROUP IS THE PRINCESS BALL DESIGNED FOR?
Activities are designed for a variety of ages, and The Sixty-Five Roses Princess Ball can be enjoyed by all princes and princesses. We've found that the majority of our young guests fall in the 3-10 year age range, but any child who enjoys feeling like royalty is bound to have a great time!
Children under the age of one who do not require a seat will not require a ticket. Guests aged 14 and older should purchase an adult ticket.
IS THERE RESERVED SEATING?
All seating is available on a first come, first served basis, with the exception of groups that purchase an entire table. Groups that purchase a table of eight in one transaction (whether VIP or regular tickets) will have a table reserved for their group. Large groups that have purchased tickets individually should arrive early to ensure they can be seated together.
VIP ticket purchases include preferred seating at marked tables around the dance floor, but the seats themselves are not reserved.
There's no need to bring extra money unless you'd like to. Tons of fun is included in your ticket price, including face painting, crafts, and food and beverage! However, The Sixty-Five Roses Princess Ball is a charity fundraiser and there will be additional activities available for purchase at the event, such as the rainbow auction and key raffle.
If you wish to take part in these extras, we accept payment by cash or credit card. Cash purchases are especially appreciated, as they help us keep our overall costs down.
DO I NEED TO BRING EXTRA MONEY TO THE EVENT?
Free parking is available on the streets surrounding the Fort Garry Hotel all day on Sunday. There is also on-site parking in the hotel's parking lot. Please contact the Fort Garry Hotel directly for rates.
WHERE SHOULD I PARK?
WHAT IS YOUR REFUND POLICY?
Although we appreciate that plans can change, all tickets are non-refundable.
WHAT DOES MY TICKET INCLUDE?

VIP tickets also include preferred seating, advanced entrance into the grand ballroom, a keepsake gift, free nearby parking, and a princess seated at your table during lunch!
If you'd like to contribute further to our fundraising efforts, you can also participate in the rainbow auction and key raffle at the event. These optional extras are not included in your ticket price.
