Every year on my birthday I have Facebook set up a donation goal of $200. Each year for the last two years I have made my goal. I also go to as many local events as I can. I just recently went to two events in the same week. I saw Santana and The Little River Band, two of my all time favorites when I was growing up. Without #VETTIX I would never be able to afford to attend any of these events.

We want to thank VetTix.org for making a lifelong dream of mine come true! I am a permanent, and totally disabled Vietnam Veteran.

I have been a diehard Notre Dame fan since my very early childhood. It took almost seven decades but your wonderful organization made it possible for my wife of 42 years Lori, and myself to root on the victorious Fighting Irish football team at the University of Notre Dame over the University of North Carolina on Saturday evening October 30, 2021. We enjoyed and relished every second of the experience. GO IRISH!

Your gift to us is a welcome respite, if only for a day from the emotionally crushing family crisis we are dealing with presently. Your gift to us made an extremely positive and emotionally uplifting impact in our lives for which we both will be forever very grateful. God bless all of you for the work you all do to support our Veterans.

Vet Tix is a wonderful non-profit. Everyone needs a break now and then and often for many vets the opportunity to go to an event is just too costly. I have been to a couple of events thanks to Vet Tix and it really made my night.

mike and i discovered vet tix a few years back. a friend of ours that works for the va told us about the site. since then, we have gotten to see concerts, ballets, jazz jams, hockey games and even a couple operas. my husband and i are forever grateful to the generous donors that make it possible for vets and their spouses to get out, socialize, try new cultural events that we may never have had the opportunity to experience. we always donate what we can to the site as we feel it is important to always pay it forward. every little bit helps!

Vettix is an Amazing organization! I have been to 100's of events over the past 5 years and never had a single issue with their system. I have referred dozens of veterans that I knew from the Marine Corps. and others I've met at the VFW and American Legion. I have complete confidence in the organization when I speak to other veterans about their programs. Vettix is 100% Veterans helping Veterans! Semper Fidelis Ad Finem.

This organization is absolutely amazing! They work tirelessly to give opportunities to military families, both active duty and veterans, to attend some cool events that we really can’t afford. These events allow us to spend time with our families at fun and exciting events, decompress and enjoy a nice day or evening out. I encourage everyone to support VetTix and we appreciate the organizations that donate tickets. I wish more individual ticket holders would do rate their tickets when they don’t use them. Let a military person attend the event in their absence, it’s such a treat! Thank you VetTix for all that you do, such a great organization. There are so many other “military” charity organizations but I don’t think any make the impact like you truly do.

One of my favorite non-profits bc you can easily see what they and they’re positive impact on military families (and now first responders). The idea is brilliant that they take donated entertainment tickets and donate them to military families so they can get out, decompress and spend some quality time together without it breaking the bank. The only thing I wish is that more people donate their tickets when they’re not going to attend their events, especially season ticket holders. I still see so many seats empty and I know these tickets wouldn’t go to waste. Donate!!!
