your event. It will typically take 24-48 hours for you to receive email confirmation
that your event is scheduled. You will be notified via email that your event was
booked and at that time you will receive your official Souplantation/Sweet Tomatoes
FunRaiser flyer to share with your guests!

Q: How do I get a copy of my FunRaiser flyer?

need to cancel your event with the manager and re-request the event through the
online application form.

being blocked from holding FunRaising events in the future.
