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.

Over the years, our partnership with Tickets For Kids has added tremendous value to the programs we offer to our Club members at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania. They have made a significant contribution in providing quality experiences to places and to events that many of our children would never have experienced. Seeing children's faces with excited expressions and bubbling conversations while riding a bus with friends on their way to Idlewild Park, or seeing them cheering on their favorite sports team at a local stadium while eating a hotdog, or participating in hands-on activities at the Science Center, you know that Tickets For Kids is an organization making a positive difference here in the Pittsburgh area. We are a proud partner with them in the effort of making our children's lives better, of fulfilling some of the dreams children have, and providing life experiences that are rewarding.

We had a great time at a recent Pens game we were able to attend through tickets we got from Tickets for Kids. You all make it possible to inspire these students and give them good thoughts and dreams ... how do I thank you for all of that? I never can, but I can see it in the eyes of the children and how it changes how they see themselves. Incredible!

The response of the chidren is just wonderful. I couldn't do what I do without Tickets for Kids. These outings give these students something else to think about at night.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give them more resources.
