    .thank everyone for your/their support...

    If I am addressing those who turn up for the event should I use 'your' or 'their'?

    We like to thank everyone for your/their support and making the event a success.

    Thanks.

    I agree with emsr2d2. However, you will hear, "We'd like to thank everyone for your support and for making the event a success". I don't think many people would consider it to be incorrect.
