What is the process for entering the lottery if I want to purchase both Community and Senior tickets?
You will need to submit an application for Senior tickets, as well as an application for Community tickets. You may use your same email for both application submissions. Please note that if you win the lottery, you will only be able to purchase up to the number of tickets submitted on the winning application; the two applications will not be tied together. Seniors may apply for and enter the event with Community tickets. But adults under age 65 should not submit an application for Senior tickets, as Senior tickets may only be used by adults ages 65+.
