“THAT’S MY TICKET PARTNERS WITH TICKETS FOR KIDS® CHARITIES”
MEDWAY, MA (That’s My Ticket) August 11, 2008 — That’s My Ticket, the world’s leading authority on sports and concert ticket displays, has joined forces with Tickets For Kids Charities. In an effort to help the non-profit charity raise funding for lower-income children and their families to experience live educational, sporting, and family events, That’s My Ticket has established an area on its web site allowing customers to make a donation.
“Our customer base knows the joy of attending events. It’s what they do and we have built our business on it,” says That’s My Ticket President Dean Macchi. “Thus, it only makes sense that our customers would want to help send a child to a game or show. One hundred percent of all donations will be forwarded to Ticket For Kids Charities.”
Founded in 1994, Tickets For Kids Charities is based in Pittsburgh and has reached more than one million kids and their families nationwide. Tickets for Kids Charities receives tickets and then donates them to hundreds of nonprofit social service agencies and community groups that chaperone the children and their families to the events.
“Thanks to our partnership with That’s My Ticket, lower-income children across the nation now have the opportunity to be included in their community’s events. Hearing, ‘This was the best day of my life!’ following a child’s first time at a ball field, performance or concert is what it’s all about. Together, we can create magical moments…lifetime memories for kids by letting them experience the wonderful educational, cultural, sporting and entertainment events their area has to offer,” says Vera Marelli, Program Director of Tickets for Kids Charities.
That’s My Ticket has been making officially licensed Major League Baseball and National Hockey League ticket displays for two years. It is also licensed by NASCAR and the Collegiate Licensing Company and plans on adding the NBA and NFL in the near future.
