Events & RSVPs


The WRSSAR holds regular events throughout the year. These events are open to members, their families, friends and the community at large. We endeavor to make these events both fun and educational. We look forward to seeing you there. If you have ideas for future events, please do send them to us: wrssar.communications@gmail.com

  • RSVPs are required for all events. We accept online payments at the time of your reservation or you can pay at the door (cash, check or credit card). While we would prefer non-members to pay in advance, that is not a requirement.
  • Cancellations must be made in writing or by phone, at least, 72 hours ahead of time.

Online RSVP Service

You can RSVP (no payment required) or Pre-Pay for any event by clicking the appropriate box below. Feel free to contact us with questions.

Please note: Due to venue policies, if you RSVP and do not pre-pay, but then fail to attend the event, we will need you to reimburse us the full cost of your ticket since the venue will charge us for your meal whether you attend or not.

(Still-on/Pending) 4th Annual Night Out With the CLE Indians @ progressive field
Aug 11 @ 7:00 pm – 10:30 pm
(Still-on/Pending) 4th Annual Night Out With the CLE Indians @ progressive field

COVID update:  As of 5/26/20, the Indians have not yet set their summer schedule. The game is still scheduled and we intend to offer tickets to our members (those interested). 

In the event that the event is canceled, the Indians will give us a refund.  There are only 14 tickets so if you think that you might attend, please RSVP NOW … we will not charge you until just before the event. But, we need to know who is interested ASAP.

This summer, we picked a Tuesday night game against San Diego since it is a rare pairing to see in Cleveland.  We have reserved 14 CLUB SEATS for this game.

For those who have not been to the Club Seat area before, CLUB SEATS are in a restricted area for club seat ticket holders only with UNLIMITED – all you can eat and drink (non-alcoholic) food from various restaurants and stands in that section.  There is also an air conditioned lounge with a bar and TV screens – the entire club area was renovated two years ago.

We are not adding a penny to the cost of the ticket since it is steep. Each ticket is $90.  You can pay for the ticket by cash, check or credit card. We have to sell them on a 1st come/1st served basis since we only have 14 seats and we cannot get any more.  Club Seats sell out by early February.

We need to cap ticket purchases at 4 tickets per person in order to ensure that several members can take advantage of this great event.

To purchase tickets, you can either do so ONLINE using our RSVP and PREPAY section of the Events page or you can mail us a check.  But, please contact us BEFORE mailing a check just to make sure that we still have seats. You can email us at wrssar.communications@gmail.com or call 216-357-1646.

In early summer, I will email the tickets to those who have purchased them.

If you have other thoughts of sporting or social events that you would like us to sponsor, please let us know.  Our goal is to find ways to attract our members to our events.  We can only do so with your feedback.
