CHECK IN PROCEDURE AT THE HAMPTON / WRISTBANDS

Head to the 2nd floor Ballroom.  Refer to the staggered check in time on your schedule according to your color group.

Station 1:  Check in here first.  At this station we will make sure that we have ALL FORMS on file, which include:
  • Liability Release form
  • Model Responsibility form (which includes ZERO tolerance for alcohol or other substances prior to you walking in the runway)​
  • ​Emergency Contact Form
  • Model (photo/video) release form
     
Station 2:  Get your wristband(s)
Wristbands are color coded to indicate if you are runway only, or if you are also receiving a party wristband, a Ribbons Foundation Lounge Wristband or a YOU NIGHT sister upgrade wristband.
  • If you did not purchase a party wristband, General Admission tickets to stay after you walk the runway are $50.  We recommend you purchase those ahead of time to save time.  Purchase those at the same link where you signed up to be a model.  You can purchase at Station 2, but again - this will slow things down for check in.

     
Station 3:  Get your SASH if you are a survivor of any type of cancer.  Get your Guinness participation certificate, and if you received training from Coach Leslie, get your official model certificate.

Go into Ballroom:  Grab a chair and that will be your HEADQUARTERS to place your belongings.  Your belongings need to be contained in ONE suitcase (two max) that has a luggage tag on each, with your phone number.  We are not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged items.  Do not bring valuables.

You may leave your suitcase in the ballroom anytime from 11 a.m. - 11:30 p.m. BUT DO NOT CHECK IN until your appointed time if you come early to drop off your suitcase.

If you walk the runway and want to come back to the hotel and change into something different for the party, that is fine -- just claim your items by 11:30.  Anything left will be thrown away.  With 500 models, we cannot be responsible as a lost and found, so be diligent with organizing your items.

There are absolutely NO cell phones allowed on the runway.  If you insist walking from the Hampton to the Sugar Mill with a cell phone in hand, you can leave them in a basket at the start of the runway, and grab them as soon as you are finished walking.

We recommend the buddy system if you are walking anywhere outside of the venue.  Be diligent.  The convention center is generally a safe area, but we ask that you be hyper-aware of your surroundings.

PARKING is available at a variety of lots near the center, particularly FULTON GARAGE. Uber and Lyft is always a great solution.
 
ALCOHOL AND DRUG POLICY:  Do not be the person(s) who make us forfeit this world record because we don't have the numbers if we have to dismiss you from walking.  Abstain from ANY alcohol or other substances prior to walking.
 
INTERVIEWS:  Do you have a response planned if a reporter asks you a question about why you are doing this? 
OUR MISSION:  You Night offers year-round programs for women to find a sisterhood of support and a path forward after any type of cancer diagnosis.    Funds raised help us fund our year-round programs gifted to participants.  Perhaps you are walking in honor of someone?  Or you are walking to honor ALL persons who have fought or are fighting.  (Plan a response just in case a reporter asks you).
HAVE FUN but remember that you truly are a ROLE MODEL.  We have a very high expectation and standard of behavior.  In the dressing room and at rehearsals, be the person who lifts others up with a positive and helpful spirit.  This is going to be hectic, so prepare for ANYTHING and adjust in a positive, helpful way.
SOCIAL MEDIA SHARING!  We would love to sell out!  Please encourage everyone to visit www.ribbonsrockgala.com to purchase tickets.  Let them know you are walking the runway.  You can find all sorts of good images to share on our main Facebook page: @YouNightEvents:  https://www.facebook.com/YouNightEvents.

RAIN PLAN:  1st, we will not allow this to happen!  BUT, should a storm come that causes us to RESCHEDULE THE ENTIRE EVENT, we will keep you posted.  If a little rain falls, we walk in the rain!  AND if that happens, have an umbrella handy!
 

Record to beat: 421
