Veteran Tickets Foundation Vettix / 1sttix An outstanding and very giving organization. Truly one of a kind. They have afforded me the opportunity to attend various shows, concerts, & sporting events throughout Chicago. Being able to take my son and enjoy a game & show him at an early age the historical significance of each sport and of each team is uplifting. From the Bears to the White Sox to the Blackhawks to the Bulls, he was in awe of them all. When asked if we had another baseball team we could go see, I couldn't lie to my son, I told him the truth....No. Having an opportunity to meet players, observe the monuments & statues at these great stadiums was amazing & memorable in its own right. To get away, w/ my son and be able to block out outside noise, problems, & internal ailments is what was truly priceless. Even if it was for only a few hours. Saying Thank You & being grateful doesn't do it justice neither. The aforementioned nonprofit is second to none in what they do. And hope many more Veterans can take advantage of this great nonprofit and most importantly thanks to the donors. Please keep donating. Without them there wouldn't be a nonprofit to write a review about. USAF Veteran

VetTix provided an excellent evening for myself and my friends. The process is easy and it has always been a great time. I am grateful for the opportunity to see shows that I otherwise would be unable to attend. Thank you VetTix!

What an amazing organization! Donors are not only giving the gift of event tickets, but the gift of quality time spent between military members and our loved ones. In our profession, time is the most precious commodity, and this organization affords those opportunities.

Vettix has been amazing! They have given my family and I opportunities to experience things we normally wouldn't be able to. I was able to take my kids to see the Portland Trailblazers, they will remember that experience for a long time!

This is a fantastic organization. Veterans in the civilian world often struggle to meet the basic needs and do not have much money left for fun events. This is where Vet Tix comes in and I am very appreciative of them.

I've been able to attend multiple events that I wouldn't have even known about thanks to VetTix. I'm expanding my horizons, attending things outside my comfort zone, and making new friends. I'm also a fan of easily being able to donate back to the organization each time I request tickets. Thanks for everything!

I have been a client of Vet Tix for about 5 years and it has been a game changer for me and my wife.. I am retired and through Vet Tix we are able to go to events we would not be able to attend any other way...

Vet Tix has been able to help my family by giving us opportunities to experience new things that we usually wouldn't have been able to do. I was able to attend concerts that I never thought I would be able to because of my demanding job in the Army, my wife took our daughters to see Disney Frozen on Ice while I was deployed and was able to involve my mother. The memories made thanks to Vet Tix are outstanding and I look forward to continuing to use their services to many more years to come!

Vettix has been a blessing for me and my family. Concert tickets are very expensive and we have been able to hear legendary bands affordably. There is a wonderful range of events to inspire you.

Over the years VetTix has provided my family of four the ability to attend football games, concerts, and even a movie. Free of charge in most cases. I have recommended them to all Veterans I come in contact with.
