The Jessie Games
How can I purchase an admission ticket ( Individual/Family/Sponsor A Family) package?
Please go to the "Admissions and Sponsoring Admissions" tab. Select the quantity of each type of ticket that you wish to purchase and click "next" to process. Tickets may be purchased up until the day before the event (August 4th). If you would like to purchase a ticket after this date, please call 412-456-6950 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets are not guaranteed.
Do I get a physical ticket?
No, physical tickets are not needed at registration. Your information is saved electronically for admission to the event. If you are sponsoring a family in need, your reservation will be handled through Catholic Charities to provide and ensure this family receives this benefit.
Can I reserve a ticket and pay later?
Although we do allow for an RSVP list, tickets are sold on a first come, first serve basis, and should be purchased in advance. An RSVP prior to the actual date, without a ticket purchase, does not guarantee admission to the event.
Can I make a pledge for my ticket?
Yes, we accept pledges for admission and event sponsorships. Please process the registration as usual but type “PLEDGE” in the discount code box to zero out amount. A pledge means that you will be paying by other means, such as check or cash. All pledges are typically paid prior to the event date. After your registration process is complete, simply send in your payment (although cash is not recommended by mail) with your confirmation email to Catholic Charities 212 Ninth Street, Pittsburgh PA 15222 attention: Jessie Games
