50th Reunion Registration Payment Page


To finalize registration you must make payment.


There are multiple ways to pay for your reunion ticket. The digital options below are all free with no service charges but will require you to set up an account if you do not already have one. The digital methods are preferred, otherwise you can send a check. Credit Cards are only an option with PayPal and incur a $4 service charge.

As you make your payment, please consider our Financial Assistance Fund   by adding a contribution to your ticket price. More information on the Fund is at the bottom of this page.

Price - $120

Digital Methods for Making Payment

The listings below are free services we established to receive your payment. They will not direct you to a dedicated page to make payment (except when using the QR code). If you do not already have an account with one of these methods, you will need to 1) download the app for the service (or go to their website), 2) create an account, and 3) manually send your payment using the information below, or use the QR code. All of these methods draw funds from either your bank account or a debit card. It might sound like a lot of work, but it actually should be pretty easy.





Who Do I Send Funds To Digitally?

For most of these methods you will be sending your payment to Bob Updegrove using one of the contacts below (be sure to spell correctly). If you have an account with one of the apps below, scan the QR code with your device camera to directly link you to Bob’s account:

Digital Options

Venmo is a very popular method for sending money to friends and family. A nice app and account to have on your phone, tablet or computer.

If you have an iPhone or iPad you can send money via the Apple Messages or Apple Wallet (iPhone only) apps. You will first need to set up Apple Cash, if you have not done so already. After Apple Cash is set up, in Messages just start a new message to 703-401-0277 and then click on the “Cash” icon at the bottom. You might want to send a test message (“50th reunion payment”) to the phone number above and receive a confirmation before sending any money. In Apple Wallet (iPhone only) pick the Cash card and click on “Send”.

Zelle is a free service for transferring money that is typically associated with your bank (for example CapitalOne offers Zelle). You will need to check with your bank or do a search for Zelle and your bank name. If your bank offers Zelle then most likely all you have to do is access your bank account online and look for a link to Zelle.

Google Pay operates much like Apple Pay. If you have a Gmail account you just need the Google Pay app and connect it to your bank account or a debit card. Click here or here for further instructions. Please note: either use bobupdegrove@gmail.com or 703-401-0277 as contact to make payment.

PayPal is our only option for you to use a Credit Card. If you are using a credit or debit card you will need to add a $4 fee on top of your ticket price. PayPal is otherwise free if you are using your bank account or cash funds in your PayPal balance to make your payment.

Pay by Check

Please make your check payable to:

Bob Updegrove

25 Catoctin Cir SE

PO Box 4262

Leesburg, VA 20177-8820

It is preferred and should be easier to fill out the online Registration Form. Plus it makes it much simpler for us to import that information into our database. However, if you opt for the printed registration form, please include it with your check. But again, the online Registration Form is much better. Are you getting the hint?

50th Reunion Financial Assistance Fund

There might be classmates who are on a fixed income or a tight budget and possibly find it difficult to afford coming to the reunion. In order to lend a hand, many of our fellow classmates have already generously contributed to our Financial Assistance Fund.


Making a Request for Financial Assistance

If you are in need of financial assistance, all you have to do is let us know. We want you there and will do what we can to help make that happen. This fund is only for GCM Class of 1973 graduates, and is only for the ticket (not travel or lodging). Please be assured that the only people who will know who is requesting and/or receiving assistance is our reunion committee of four people, who have all agreed to keep the names of recipients confidential.

Making a Contribution

If you would like to contribute to this fund, first of all, thank you. All you need to do is add your contribution to your ticket price, so if you want to contribute $20 you would be making a payment of $140 if purchasing a single $120 ticket. We want to underscore: there is absolutely no obligation to make a contribution. No one is keeping tabs other than for bookkeeping sake.
