The FULL CONFERENCE TICKET will be priced at $100.00 for first ticket, and all additional tickets purchased by same family/person will be $90.00 each.

The second type of ticket is the FAMILY DAY TICKET. This is an additional ticket for extra caregivers, family members and friends you may have with you, who will not attend the Saturday conference day, but will attend FAMILY DAY activities with you on Sunday!

The family day tickets are not a stand alone ticket and may only be purchased WITH at least one FULL CONFERENCE TICKET.
Family Day Tickets cost is to cover expenses of the breakfast only, and so these tickets will be a minimal charge of $15.00 for adults and $5.00 for children.

This ticket includes:
Sunday Morning Breakfast Buffet
ALL Sunday Program and Activities

HERE ARE SOME THINGS TO NOTE:

1. Hydranencephaly Children are our guests of honor. They may attend all activities both days and do not need a ticket for anything! (As with all GHF activities, this includes those children who have had the diagnosis of hydranencephaly AT ANY TIME and those children who are "grandfathered" into our support group even though their diagnosis may have changed over time).

2. The only meal not included for the two day conference is Saturday evening dinner. There will be a dinner break for families to have dinner on their own or with other families (we will try to coordinate a location for those families who wish to meet in a group dinner setting - more details as time gets closer on this). You will have from 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm for dinner. We will reconvene at 6:30 pm and there will be a dessert bar set up for conference attendees to take a dessert into the KEYNOTE meeting. SO save room for dessert!

3. Saturday's conference is for those parents/caregivers/friends/family who are ages 16 and older. The only exception to this rule are the hydranencephaly children. Please keep this in mind when planning, as you will need to have someone with your party, who is not attending the Saturday conference to watch your younger family members. There will be no babysitting available due to liability issues with the venue. However, there are a myriad of things to do in the immediate vicinity of the hotel to keep young ones occupied by their designated caregiver on Saturday! Movie theaters, malls, the indoor pool at the hotel are some of the ready activities!

4. In order to participate in Sunday family day activities/breakfast you must have purchased at least ONE FULL Conference Ticket! This is to assure that families get the full benefit from the hydranencephaly conference and that they are able to come and take advantage of the FULL weekend! Sunday's Family Day is an "extra" bonus so that entire families on the support group can meet and mingle with one another and have a relaxed good time together! Saturday is our day of learning and growing!

We are so pleased to have the opportunity to organize and present this conference for our families!! It has been a HUGE effort to produce, and we want to thank the marketing committee members, Marianne Nevil, Dru Springer, Linsey Mckee, Devoney Wolfe, Jessica Zuchowski, especially and all others who are donating time and resources to make sure this is the best conference it can be!
