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 is an amazing organization that allows veterans like myself and their families to enjoy local and regional events through their wonderful sponsors and generous donors. I have had the pleasure of attending two concerts through the Veterans Tickets Foundation giving my family and I lasting memories and great stories to share with family, friends, and other veterans.

Thank you Vettix we appreciate everything that you have done and continue to do for the military community.

Vet Tix is an outstanding nonprofit! I joined in April 2019 and requested tickets to Dirks Bentley's Burning Man Tour with Jon Pardi and Elle King. The show was great. What was even better was the ease of which Vet Tix provided the tickets. In less than five minutes, I had tickets on my iPhone through TicketMaster. Thank you VetTix for a great Father's Day gift.

As a disabled veteran I appreciate Vet Tix and all of the generous donors that make it possible for me to take my family to different events in my area. Events that I might or might not be able to afford to take my family and allow them to enjoy these great events.

I just found out about Vet Tix from a friend. One of the hidden benefits that’s not so clearly stated by others, it is letting us get out of the house with friends and family. I wish we could also thank the donors as well.
