At this current time there is no mask requirement, though this is subject to change pending CDC and NYC protocols.  Two Ten remains committed to the safety of all Gala attendees and staff. We are monitoring the status of COVID-19 and will adhere to CDC and NYC health protocols in place at the time of the event. Masks will be made available to any guest who requests one.

Do I need to register online before attending?

All confirmed guests will receive email instructions 1-2 weeks before the event to pre-register online.  Once guests are pre-registered, they will be able to donate, purchase raffle tickets, buy additional gaming chips etc. through our event software and have an expedited check-in process when they arrive at the event.  There will also be the option to register in-person upon arrival at the event.

Ticketing for this event is 100% digital, with no paper tickets required.  There will be a fully staffed check-in desk upon arrival at the venue, where guests can give their names.  Guests who have not pre-registered online will be asked to provide credit card information and cell phone number should they wish to participate in the gaming portion of the evening.

Individuals who have not donated and received ticketing confirmation prior to the event may not be granted admission. There are no tickets available at the door.
