Your FightNight Questions Answered

FightNight XXIX is nearly here…and we are sold out! On Thursday, April 27, we’ll return to the Chantilly Ballroom at the Hilton Anatole Hotel and experience Havana’s vibrant scene! This event offers unrivaled networking with the who’s who of the commercial real estate industry and most importantly, benefits TREC Foundation’s good works.

We know you may have questions about this Havana Knockout. Here are the answers:

I don’t want to miss anything. What time should I arrive?

This black-tie event will be held at the Hilton Anatole Hotel on Thursday, April 27. Cocktails begin at 6:30 p.m. and dinner will be served in the Chantilly Ballroom at 8 p.m. The casino opens and fights begin at 9 p.m.

Where should I park?

All guests receive a valet pass. Valet parking, sponsored by KDC, is located at the Chantilly entrance. Or you can avoid the parking question all together and use Uber.

Do I need a ticket?

Yes! We mailed tickets to your table host and they will distribute to you.

How will I know where to sit?

You and your guests can eat together and watch the fights at your reserved table. Table number assignments are on each ticket and each table is assigned a hostess. All hostesses will be wearing pink and yellow cocktail dresses.

How do I try my luck at the casino games?

Casino games, sponsored by HFF, will be open from 9 – 11:30 p.m. in the Chantilly Ballroom. Each guest will receive a playing chip to be used to play blackjack, roulette and craps. Additional chips will be available for purchase. You can then cash out your winning for raffle entries!

Can I place bets on the fights?

Yes! Bets on the boxing bouts start at $10. You can place your bets with hostesses at your table or you can visit the Betting Booth where volunteers will assist you. If you pick the winner, you can then exchange your winnings at the Betting Booth, sponsored by NexBank, for raffle entries.

How do I win amazing raffle prizes?

You will have plenty of opportunity in any of our three raffles. We have the 1) ALC Raffle – You purchase raffle tickets from ALC class members prior to FightNight or purchase raffle tickets at the cocktail reception, 2) Casino Raffle – You cash out your winning from the casino games, or 3) Betting Booth Raffle – You exchange your winnings from the betting booth.

Where can I find the cigar lounge?

A live cigar roller will be waiting for you near our outdoor Cigar Lounge, sponsored by Cushman & Wakefield, just off the Chantilly Foyer. Cigars will be available for purchase inside, but you must be at our outdoor Cigar Lounge to use the cigar.

Help! I don’t own a tuxedo!

Do you still need any volunteers?
