And in the past, when I did search for tickets, it made me feel skeezy to know that I was paying jacked-up prices that would just line the pockets of ticket scalpers.
Enter Tickets-for-Charity. Where you can "find the seats you want - at the same or better price you'll find elsewhere - and support great causes in the process."
Earlier this week, Hubby and I trekked into Boston after work to attend a blogger event hosted by Tickets-for-Charity and Narragansett Beer. (Aren't we so wild and crazy? On a school night.)
The excitement and enthusiasm of the Tickets-For-Charity employees was palpable. They all love their company and what they do. And I, in turn, now love them.
We even had a chance to meet Jord Poster, the founder. He also was one of the founding members of Priceline.com. Nice guy.
So, you ask, how does it work?
*The sports team or performer designates certain seats for "charitable sale".
*Then Tickets-for-Charity offers these seats for face value, plus a pre-determined donation amount.
*100% of face value is remitted to the team/artist.
*100% of the donation amount is distributed to the charity. (Tickets-for-Charity has partnerships with almost 100 (!) respected charities.)
So as a fan, you are paying the same or better price that you would pay a broker or scalper, but 100% of the benefit above face value supports charity!
I am now part of the Tickets-for-Charity blogger ambassador team! Once a month, I will be bringing you a chance to win a Red-Sox related giveaway here on the blog! And trust me when I say these giveaways are gonna be goooood.
(Hint: May = VIP Fenway Park Tour!)
(So to my local readers who I know read, but never comment??? Time to warm up those typing fingers!)
And in the meantime, if you are so inclined, simply click on the Tickets-for-Charity button at the top of my right sidebar to order your tickets through them or call 1-866-567-4576.
And stay tuned for some awesome Sox opportunities!
