    Great pics and a great looking event.

    Of course, despite the fact that it’s for charity, I see TicketMaster still charge $3/ticket ‘convenience charge’, $1.25/ticket ‘building charge’ and an extra $2.50 to save them money by printing your own tickets. Sheesh.

    They may have some tickets at the door… I might even try that route and cut out the middle man.
