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

This is an amazing organization. They provide vets with entertainment opportunities that for lots of folks are expensive and not within the budget. Thanks to them, there are smiles on faces more often!

We had a great time watching the Minnesota Twins play the Boston Red Sox on Monday, June 17, 2019 even though the Twins lost 2-0.

Vettix is phenomenal! My family and I have shared precious memories at events provided by Vettix and their sponsors. It's really nice being a disabled vet on a fixed income, and still being able to afford to go to some big name concerts and ballgames. I appreciate what you guys do, please keep it going!

After discovering VetTix, I have been able to attend a few Minnesota Twins games with my son and share the experience with family and friends. The generosity of VetTix, MLB and the Minnesota Twins organization to provide this blessing is so wonderful! Thank you!

I rarely give five stars to anything, but VetTix earns it. Their variety of events and the ease of claiming tickets are without parallel. My lone complaint is that the website could be easier to navigate.

I’m not sure how I found out about Vet Tix. I think it was some sort of email. I can remember thinking this isn’t going to work, or I’m going to get bombarded with spam mail. Well, the next thing I know I’m sitting at the Bellator World Title Fight with my two sons and their friend and no spam! Something that I may have done, but probably not. They can’t wait to go to their next fight now. Thank You Vet Tix and your donors for making these trips possible!

Wonderful folks providing awesome experiences for military families! I'm a "geographic bachelor", which makes family time limited. Being able to get tickets for awesome events really helps with strengthening marriage/family bonds.

Vet Tix is a great charity. Every time I have attended an event I have met other vets that are also attending a Sporting event or concert due to the generosity of companies and individuals donating tickets.

A really great service for veterans who need a break both during and after serving, from time to time. I've not taken advantage of this more than once so far, but I've been blown away with how simple and easy and awesome and well-run it is.
