Judy reports to me: Just confirmed that I actually have a safari vacation in S. Africa for the silent auction!

That is awesome.. Question that I have for you is, how much would this event cost for a family of say 6?

The ticket price for adults who want to race is $100. The ticket price for adults who do not want to race is $50.

Children (17 and under) cost $15 each (all drivers must be over 18 years old).

I can see your point. However, it's going to be a great day, full of activity for kids of all ages with the added bonus that proceeds will benefit cancer patients.
