RIAWC Reservation Policy

At RIAWC our policy is very simple:


“A Reservation Made is a Reservation Paid!”

In order to attend our monthly luncheons, we require you to RSVP (make a reservation) no later than 10:00 PM the Friday before the luncheon date.

If you make a reservation and are unable to attend, you must cancel by the same reservation deadline. If you fail to cancel by this date, you will be liable for the cost of the meal. Please understand that your RSVP guarantees your attendance and in doing so RIAWC purchases a meal for you. 

The above policy also goes for any guest you may RSVP for. You will be held responsible for the cost of their meal if you fail to cancel by the reservation deadline.

 If you have any questions regarding this policy, please contact riawcreservations@gmail.com



 Option One: 

E-mail your reservation to the RIAWC Reservation Chair at RIAWCreservations@gmail.com

Please include your name, contact information, and menu selection. 

Option Two: 

Call or text the RIAWC Reservation Chair


Please include your name, contact information, and menu selection


***The RIAWC Reservation Chair will respond to all RSVPs. Feel free to double check if your reservation has not been confirmed.
