* 2. Have you attended the Awards Ceremony in the past?

* 3. What is your age? 

* 4. The ticket price for the Awards Ceremony has historically fluctuated from year to year. The Awards Ceremony began breaking even last year as a result of increased ticket prices. In 2018, the early bird ticket price was set at $75 per person, and the regular ticket price at $100. How do you feel about the ticket prices?
