Every year, we field lots of questions about Noche de Gourmet, and we’ve compiled a list of the most popular questions below. If you have a question that isn’t addressed in the list below, please contact us at NOCHE@PHOENIX2030.COM.

What’s the dress code for Noche de Gourmet?

The suggested dress code is Cocktail Attire/Semi-Formal. Dress code isn’t enforced, but we’d hate for anyone to feel “under-dressed” at the event. Check out the Gallery page for photos from prior years if you’d like to get an idea of what people wear.

What’s the difference between General Admission (GA) and VIP tickets?

General Admission (GA) tickets cost $100 and provide access to the main entertainment stage, main restaurant areas and the wine & beer bars (no mixed alcohol beverages).  VIP tickets cost $200 and come with the same benefits as GA tickets, while also allowing access to the VIP Areas on the second floor.  VIP ticket holders will have access to VIP bars, which include premium liquor & mixed drinks, as well as to special tastings and food samples throughout the evening.

Will GA ticket-holders be able to purchase mixed-drinks?

No. Due to liquor license restrictions, we will not be selling alcoholic beverages at our charity events. GA ticket holders will have access to wine & beer bars throughout the event, but will NOT have access to the VIP bars.

What time does the event start/end?

Doors open at 7pm, lights out at midnight.

Where exactly is the Venue of Scottsdale?

The Venue of Scottsdale is at 7117 E. 3rd Avenue.

Noche de Gourmet is a charity event – is my ticket tax-deductible?

Yes, but maybe not 100%. Noche de Gourmet is a charity event, but if you attend the event and sample the food & beverages, then your donation will be partially tax-deductible – you must reduce your tax deduction by the amount of the goods/services you receive (we’ll let you and your accountant/tax-professional determine that amount). If you purchase a ticket and don’t attend the event, the entire amount will be tax-deductible.
