    Student ticket-holders are reminded to bring their valid Student IDs with them, confirming their status and eligibility.

Activities include arts & crafts, face painting and tattoos, balloon twisting, basketball, slide, sit n spin, seesaw, and party games.

    3. MEMBERS SUPPORT

    Many guests have enquired recently about how to sign up as a member, and existing members have requested assistance with processing their membership renewals. As such, there will be a MMAC Members Support desk available at the banquet where our administrative staff and board members will be happy to assist you and answer any questions.   

    4. TRANSFERS/REFUNDS

    If you cannot attend the banquet for any reason, ticket transfers are permitted to others who may be able to attend and meet the same ticket eligibility requirements. Please email communications@muslimmeds.ca the name(s) of the individual(s) who will be using the ticket, so that we may update our records for event check-in.
