FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

GENERAL FAQ

I bought a ticket, now what?

Sit tight! We will be in touch with you via the email address used to purchase your ticket.

General Admission attendees can expect to hear from us in April, at which time they will be provided instructions for registering on OneCause. All other ticket holders will be contacted in March to supply their Celebration Box shipping address and guest names (if applicable).

Once the OneCause event page opens on April 12, all attendees will need to register. Use the email address tied to your ticket purchase as it will already be in the OneCause system – this is to help keep the event secure. Keep your username and password handy for easy access on April 17. Once you’ve set up your login, you are ready to go!

 

What is OneCause?

OneCause is a private event platform that enables us to bring you a multi-layered virtual experience. It will be used to curate the auctions and broadcast the main event (note: the pre-show will not be held on OneCause). Instructions for accessing the OneCause event page will be distributed to ticket holders on April 12.

 

 

Are there any in-person Gala events?

Not this year, however we invite you to engage with us online! During the event, please feel welcome to participate in the live chat featured on OneCause and use #LINESGala2021 when sharing Gala highlights on social media.

 

 

What happens on April 17?

To view the main event at 6pm PDT, you will login to OneCause with your username and password. We encourage you to do this at least 15 minutes before showtime to ensure everything is working.

For those attending the pre-show at 5pm PDT, you will be emailed specific instructions for accessing your virtual pre-show room.

Having issues? Email us at gala@linesballet.org

 

How can I make an extra gift to support LINES Ballet?

Attendees will be able to donate to LINES Ballet through the OneCause platform.

Can’t wait until the OneCause event page opens on April 12? Contact us or click here to make a donation online. We thank you for your support!

 

 

What is special about my Artist’s Circle / Alonzo’s Circle ticket?

You’re invited to the pre-show event! We will contact you in March to collect the shipping address for your Celebration Box and guest names (if applicable). You will receive instructions for accessing your pre-show virtual room a few days prior to April 17. Make sure to have Zoom on whatever device you would like to use.

 

Where can Celebration Boxes be delivered?

Celebration boxes can be delivered anywhere in the United States. Please note that boxes must be reserved by March 20 to ensure delivery.

 

 

I will attend with other people in my household. Do I need to purchase multiple admissions?

Each admission provides a single OneCause account. This means a single OneCause login, a single bidding account for auctions, a single username for the live chat, etc. While we welcome you gathering with members of your household to enjoy the event together, we suggest that you purchase multiple admissions if you would like more than one OneCause account.
