AMCF understands that many families are affected by COVID-19 and other reasons for financial hardship. As this is a fundraising event, AMCF would like to offer a sliding scale for tickets and trust that you’ll choose the plan that fits your needs. Please note no one will be turned away due to a lack of finances. Should you still not be able to afford the registration, feel free to reach out to us (email email@example.com) and we’ll make sure you can attend.
