What’s included in your ticket?
Each guest will receive a few small gifts from Alex. If you are staying at one of the hotels, Alex has a welcome gift. The Saturday luncheon includes Q&A with Alex. Books and merchandise will be available at heavily discounted prices.
What do you mean by $5 of the ticket price goes to PROMISE 4 PAWS Senior Dog Sanctuary?
All dogs are special to Alex. In 2018 a V.I.R. Club member introduced Alex to this wonderful charity that gives a home to senior dogs that are abandoned, rescued by the Nebraska Humane Society or left alone because of a death of their owner. The charity is run through just donations and volunteers who donate their time to love and nurture the end days of senior dogs. This year Alex is pledging to match each of the guest’s donation with an equal donation from herself. Together we’ll present our donation to Promise4Paws at the luncheon.
When will Alex sign my books?
Alex will sign books after her presentation and Q&A.
What is included in the meal?
The luncheon is a choice of Skillet Roasted Chicken Breast with Roasted Fingerling Hash or Fall Vegetable Gnocchi with Roasted Butternut, Pickled Turnips, Compressed Kale and Butter Blanc, including dessert and tea or coffee.
When can I talk to Alex?
Don’t be shy! If you have a moment to chat with Alex one-on-one, please do it. She’s honored you’ve come and wants to get to know you!
What should I wear?
Attire for the luncheon is casual and comfortable. Omaha in mid-October can be delightful with comfortable temperatures of highs in the low to mid 60’s. You’ll want to bring a jacket as one thing about the Nebraska weather you can count on is that it can change at a moment’s notice. Walking shoes are encouraged for exploring Omaha’s Old Market area.

Can I bring friends or my husband even though they aren’t members of the VIR Club?
