Both tickets include food and drink samples, a curated market, and access to industry specialists. Heads up, ticket prices go up to $30-$100 if purchased the day of. 

A portion of the event’s proceeds go towards the Laundry Project—a nonprofit that assists lower-income families with cleaning their clothes and linens. During events “laundry fees are paid for while volunteers assist with laundry services, entertain children, and create a caring space at the laundromat.”
