It has been a pleasure for Prime Stage to partner with Tickets with Kids on the Celebration 360: Celebration of Reading events and see their young people enjoy theatre and reading literature! The commitment of Tickets for Kids Charities to connect young people to cultural events is noteworthy.

Tickets for Kids is an amazing organization in which provides our students with unbelievable opportunities. The organization reaches out to allow students to experience unique and fun aspects of life while developing an educational aspect to the entire system. Out students, most with IEP's or behavioral issues brighten up and become motivated because of organizations like Tickets for Kids.

Tickets for Kids Charity is one of the most worthy youth organizations I know. They believe... in making low-income and at risk children dreams come true by making amazing events and activities accessible to our children who can't afford a purchase price and would not otherwise be included. Through the hard work of their dedicated staff, our children are able to enjoy amazing events and activities that fosters their creativity through personal feelings and experiences. We are so THANKFUL for the Ticket for Kids Charity.

Tickets for Kids Charities has a great mission of helping kids gain a more broad educational experience by having the chance to attend events. TKC obtains the tickets based on their relationship with national organizations and sports teams, which TKC works hard to establish. . It's a great charity helping better educate our kids and keep them entertained. Well run on a small budget.

Auberle has been a grateful Tickets for Kids (TFK) partner organization since TFK was founded. We recognize the value of exposure to sporting, educational, cultural and recreational activities for at-risk children. Many of our youth never leave their neighborhood. They have not been to downtown Pittsburgh, let alone to a concert, circus, or PNC Park. We know these experiences are critical to broadening their world view, increasing their self-esteem and developing their critical thought. It truly impacts them to open their eyes to what else there is in the region, to events that excite them and get them dreaming of being able to regularly participate in these activities with an education and a job. It is part of our mission in serving at-risk children and families to provide them with the tools, experiences and knowledge to live fulfilling lives. With support from Tickets for Kids, we are able to provide high-quality access to Pittsburgh’s renowned events, sports and cultural amenities. TFK delivers great impact to our organization and more than 3,000 at-rick children and families we serve each year.

-John Lydon, CEO of Auberle

Tickets for Kids is a very well run and organized charity organization. It has been pleasure to be associated with a team of professionals who are so fully committed to the mission of exposing children to new worlds and experiences that might not normally be available to them. It is truly an organization that can change lives - all you have to do is look at the face of a smiling child who has benefitted by exposure to an amazing and eye-opening world provided by Tickets for Kids Charities.

The staff is highly skilled and truly dedicated to professionally running the organization but at the same time being very friendly, accomodating and cooperative with the volunteers and coorespondant associations. It is an easy organization to work with and an easy one to want to help. This is one organization that is well deserving of praise and recognition.

Tickets for Kids Charities has impacted so many youth in Pittsburgh's urban core. We've had the opportunity to take our participants to events and venues that most inner city youth would not be able to attend.

Cirque du Soleil, professional basketball and football games, musicals, Boardway performance and concerts are just some of the events we've had the opportunity to experience.

We are thankful for once in a life time opportunites provided by Tickets for Kids Charities.
