Portland Graduation: The Banquet

Dates and Times

Our Celebration Banquet will be on Friday, April 24, 2015, at the Holiday Inn. Doors open at 6:30 pm and dinner will be served promptly at 7 pm. We anticipate that the program will end around 9 pm.

Attire

In keeping with the elegance of the evening, Celebration Banquet attendees are asked to dress up. Men usually wear jackets and ties, and women generally wear skirts or dresses.

Children

Western Seminary encourages guests not to bring children under the age of five, or older children who cannot sit quietly for extended periods of time. Mothers of nursing infants are welcome to bring their babies.

Entrée Option

You'll notice that the menu for the banquet is listed below. Please check with each of your guests prior to purchasing tickets. You must notify Hannah Hayes of entrée choices or dietary restrictions when you purchase banquet tickets. Dietary restrictions may only be accommodated if they are communicated at the time of purchase -- not on the night of the banquet.

Tickets

Tickets will be available for purchase on Monday, March 30th. 

Each graduate will receive two complimentary banquet tickets. Additionally, Western Seminary is pleased to subsidize eight additional tickets in order to fill a table of ten. All seating will be at assigned tables. 

Hannah Hayes will be handling banquet tickets. Please plan to pay for your tickets at the time that you contact Hannah. Tickets are available on a first-come first-serve basis, and as such we regret that we cannot reserve tickets. We cannot guarantee ticket availability beyond April 10, but if you have an emergency, please contact Hannah.
