Unclaimed Spring Gala tickets to become available Monday

Student Association president says he expects another sellout gala

Any Spring Gala tickets that are still unclaimed by Friday at 5 p.m. will be made available on Monday at 10 a.m. on a “first-come-first-serve” basis at the SBI ticket office, according to Student Association President Gunnar Haberl.

 SA used its ticket reservation system for this year’s event as opposed to last year’s Spring Gala, which required students to line up outside of the SBI ticket office. Students originally reserved all 775 tickets within eight minutes of registration opening on April 2. As of Tuesday, 258 tickets have been picked up and paid for, Haberl wrote in an email. 

 Haberl did not provide information as to how quickly or slowly tickets sold out for Winter Gala, which reached capacity, but said he expects Spring Gala to do the same.

 Spring Gala takes place on May 11 at Samuel's Grande Manor. A valid UB ID is required for ticket pickup.
