Q. Are tickets refundable?
A. No, tickets are not refundable.
Q. Can I watch the videos more than once?
A. Yes. The videos and presentations are available for viewing 24/7 anytime from June 5 through to June 19, 2022.
Q. If I buy a ticket, can I transfer it to another person to use?
A. Yes and No. You cannot transfer it to another Eventbrite account, but you may edit your ticket and put someone else’s name and email address on your ticket. You will no longer receive updates, as the info will go to the edited email address.
Q. How do I get access to the YouTube link, which holds all the videos and the two presentations?
A. Once you purchase a ticket you will receive a confirmation email from Eventbrite and subsequent emails updating you on all you require to view the videos between June 5 through June 19, 2022.

Q. Can I make a donation to the Club’s Charitable Fund on the Eventbrite webpage?
A. No, we cannot link directly to the Charitable Fund on Eventbrite; however, our website link has a Donate button where you may make an online donation and receive a receipt (for amounts of $20 or more) immediately from Canada Helps. You may directly donate after viewing any of our videos on YouTube.
Q. Why are we only selling tickets through Eventbrite?
A. The Planning Committee acknowledged early on that during the pandemic only contactless or touchless tickets will be available as a duty of care we have towards the businesses that used to sell hard copy tickets for the House Tours and to our purchasers. Going forward Eventbrite provides us with easy access to information about our purchasers and streamlines the process of selling tickets to our annual event.
Q. What are the processing fees for the tickets?
A. CFUW St Catharines is absorbing all processing fees. You will only be charged $30 for an in-person ticket and $15 for a virtual ticket.
Q. My friends and family are overseas and/or in the US. Can they buy their own Virtual tickets? Is there a currency exchange charge to do so? Can I buy their Virtual tickets instead?
A. All tickets will be charged in Canadian dollars so, depending upon exchange rates, the ticket price may be a different amount if purchased using a foreign currency. You can buy their tickets, but they will find it easy to do so, too.
As of March 21, 2022, the provincial mask mandate was lifted for most locations. A mask is not required for the in-person tour; however, anyone who prefers to wear a mask is welcome to do so. Wearing a mask would also be appreciated by our volunteers. Proof of vaccination is not required.
We’re all hopeful that the sixth COVID wave is the last. Should COVID restrictions prohibit an indoor tour, you will still be able to access the YouTube videos and presentations. Refunds will not be provided. Visit our website for the status of the tour if there is a COVID resurgence in June.
