An event detail page

All the event details are shown on the main card at the top. This image shows the main donor view and not any admin controls.

On the admin version you also have edit capabilities. See the video above for details.

Donors can reserve a ticket by choosing a ticket at the bottom with the "reserve" button.

Ticket Reservation, Step 1

This includes the ticket overview and an option to share a message and RSVP.

Step 2 looks the same as the donation flow, minus the amount selection since you picked that with the ticket type.
