Vet Tix is a wonderful organization that provides and invaluable service to Veterans! Through their efforts, Veterans and their families are able to enjoy events that they might otherwise not have been able to enjoy. It allows them to create new memories to make up for the ones that might have been missed due to combat or training deployments, military schools, etc. Our family sincerely appreciates all the donors who make this program possible and to Vet Tix for bringing it all together for our Veterans.
I met Michael Focareto during the time he decided to create this project to help others. On the surface, what appears to be just a ticket venue, is much more. Many foundations and charities are set up to feed and cloth but those are just the items for survival, this group focused on the moments that make life special and create memories that might otherwise be missed. Life is more than existing, it should be about living a shared moment of happiness. They give small windows of opportunity to do so.
VetTix is an excellent organization, allowing our Vets and active duty service personnel and their families the opportunity to attend all kinds of events they most likely would never get the chance to on their own. It's a great feeling for me to be able to give tickets to college basketball games of my alma mater to them!
With the limited options that service members have these days to stretch a dollar, Vettix has gone above and beyond to give us a variety of events. I constantly mention Vettix to my troops and they have all thought it wad the best thing since the MWR here on base.
VetTix allowed my husband and I to attend events that we would never have considered- because the budget just couldn't be stretched and used for entertainment. Thank you!
I found out about VET Tix through a coworker and signed up. The registration was easy and the first set of tcickets I received was to an Avalanche hockey game. The first professional game of anything I had attended. My wife daugter and I had a blast. I had a question and emailed it and received a call from VET Tix. That was surpising and welcome. All my questions were answered and I am still a member and recommend it to vetreans I meet.
awesomeness, military pay doesn't go all that far these days. Vet tix gives my family a way to be able to do things we wouldn't be able to afford
Tremendous organization doing great work. I was fortunate to receive help from this organization a few years ago. They are true professionals and care deeply about their clientele.
This organization does wonderful things for Veterans, things we wouldn't normally be able to get on our own. I have been with them from close to the beginning of their existence and I have never had a problem with their services. I have been to MANY different events and donate extra with each purchase I make with them. I hope they stay open for a long time! I will support them until I am a Veteran of this planet! I hope the best for them. They have great customer service and respond back to you immediately, usually resolving any problem you have withing 24 hours.
I thing what this is organization is doing is fantastic. If you think about people who serve in the military are well under payed. This organization gives them a chance to do activities that they may not be able to afford to do. It's a great organization doing great work for people who really deserve it.
I was referred to this site by a friend and must admit that once I was signed up, I was surprised by both the tickets available and ease of use of the service. Thanks Vet Tix, you're awesome.
My husband is enrolled in this service and has received tickets from here. The seats were amazing. He was so happy to be able to take our family out for a night that we wouldn't otherwise get the chance to attend. Thank you vet tix for all that you do!! Simply amazing..
I went to an event recently and was surprised at how good our tickets were. I thought they would be nose bleed, but they were 6th row. A worth cause to donate to. Thank you VetTix!
I join with thousands upon thousands of veterans to express my deepest gratitude to VetTix. After what so many of us have been through, it is really easy to dig in and isolate ourselves from the outside world. VetTix, more than any other veterans' organization, gives us the opportunity to feel normal- to get out of the very dark spaces that we can so easily revert to. For the veteran who may carry past trauma wherever we go, VetTix has given us a very healthy escape. VetTix coordinates a broad range of culture and events as a way to show appreciation for the sacrifices we've made. VetTix spends thousands of hours locating and coordinating with unbelievably generous donors to give us opportunities that we would never have available without them. If that weren't enough, we get to share these events with loved ones as a way to say Thank You for their support of those who served. VetTix is an amazing organization and my life, and those of so many veterans, would be missing so much by way of quality and normalcy, were it not for the outstanding founders and staff that make VetTix tick!
This is an wonderful organization to help veterans and their families. Our family is a great supporter!
Just joined and already received free tickets to a local college football game that I am going to enjoy with my family. Best organization out there, for Vets and Wounded Warriors.
Great organization! Myself and many others in my unit have benefited from the generosity of the Vet Tix organization. I was deployed and could not, take my daughter to a ballet concert on my own. Vet Tix set it up so that a family member could take her in my place. I advertise and contribute to Vet Tix whenever I have a little extra. Thank you for what you do!
There are many charities that help the military returning from combat, or with service related injuries. What makes VetTix stand out is it gives every service member the opportunity for entertainment that they may not otherwise get the chance to do. As a military service member member that has personally used this organization, I highly recommend them!
What an amazing group to be able to provide the ability for Vets and members of the military to attend events and do things that most wouldnt be able to afford otherwise. What a great way of saying thank you.
One of the best things that has happened to Veteren in a long time. It should have been done years ago!
Just yesterday we got tickets to see Kathy Griffin! I am going to take my mom who is a huge fan! Thank you Vet tix! I greatly appreciate it!
This is the best Veteran organization hands down. They provide entertainment and a break from the everyday life to our Veterans around the nation. I don't know another organization like Vettix nor one that helps as many veterans as Vettix does.
Veteran Tickets Foundation is a great non-profit that has helped many veterans and active service members, including myself overcome some adversities during and after military service. Veteran Tickets continued support and service to the armed forces, makes serving our great country even more fulfilling, knowing we have the support of our community and organizations such as Veteran Tickets.
Without VETTIX I would have never seen or been to the things I have. they let veterans like me know someone does care and thanks you greatly . They have helped to build my family back together by all the events I have attended. Could have never gone without Vettix and for that I thank you for the sevice you have done for all military.
As a veteran it is great to see an organization support and thank our troops. It means a lot to be a part of events that recognize our Military & Veterans and their families in a positive supportive way. I love VetTix.
I have not used this service yet, but have to say what a great thing to do for our Military. Thank you for creating this site and giving back to Military members.
My family and I have received tickets to events through Veterans Tickets Foundation - they are the BEST!! We are so thankful for an organization like this!
Vet Tix is an incredible organization that fulfills Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines wishes from concerts to ball games thanks to the generosity of thier donors. An outstanding organization that serves military members without predjudice.
My husband has been in Afghanistan for a total of 25 months since 2009. When he got home from his last tour we had a new baby as well as our oldest (who was only 6 months when he left). The first few months adjusting to the daddy roll with a 5 month old and an 18 month old were tough! Vettix gave us tickets to go to the Orion fest and we got to see Metallica. It was a fabulous weekend in Atlantic city seeing one of his favorite bands and have some time together! Thanks for all your hardwork vettix!
Easy to work with, great customer service, they always let you know ahead of time whats coming so you're not the last to know. They give what they get, what more can you ask for?
One of the easiest and best ways for a person to use sports to help others. Particularly pro sports in your local community. Great job overall, keep up the good work!
Our experience has been very positive. I have praise both for Vettix and the organizations that donate to them. "Fear Farm" donated 2,000 tickets & we had an incredible night out with teenagers. It was a win, win situation. We visited early in the season & then told lots of people about how great it is. (The Alien part was new to us and absolutely incredible.) The fee for delivery & processing is very reasonable indeed. I can honestly state we would not have a social life like this without ticket donations as we are a one income family & purchasing tickets to events adds up. I look forward to donating in the future too as the thought of other veterans getting to have lovely, life changing experiences is a wonderful cause.
What can I say about this amazing charity? My father has been deployed around seven times since 9/11, and sadly this means we have missed out on some memories we may have had. However, thanks to Vet Tixs we got to go to a Kathy Griffin show and meet her! We will never get back those memories we have lost, but at least now we have this story to remember. It was incredible for me to hear Kathy Griffin thank my father for his service. Thank you so much Vet Tixs and your donors for being so kind to these soldiers. It means the world to me for me to know that my father has seen the appreciation of his service from this charity. This tickets may not seem like a lot to other people, but to me the show how much people care.
I can't say enough good things about Veteran Tickets Foundation... because of what they do my family and I have been to events we never would have thought about going too. The smile on my wife's face when I took her to her first opera was priceless. I have spent many years away from my family and each time I go to a Vet Tix event I feel appreciated and I'm able to connect all over again with my family. Vet Tix ROCKS!!!
VetTix is a wonderful foundation. If offers tickets to just about any event that is going on in the area. I received daily emails keeping me informed of what is available. The foundation helps a lot of Veterans that otherwise would not be able to attend these events. Thank you VetTix for all you do
My husband and I are both Army veterans and while we have never requested any tickets, I do get text updates often when new events come available. We think that Veterans Tickets Foundation is a great way for members of the community who want to give something back to veterans, but just don't know how, to do something either by donating tickets or just supporting the organization. It means a lot to veterans to know that our service is recognized and appreciated! Thanks, Veteran Tickets Foundation, and please keep up your great work.
I can't say enough about VETTIX.org. I was fortunate enough to get tickets to a Reba McEntire concert for my family. It is great to have people take care of our military familys. Please share will all military family's you may know.
I can't say enough about the Veteran Tickets Foundation!! I have been to the drag races in Tucson, 2 NASCAR races in Phoenix, a Padres baseball game, and my latest tickets were to a Charlie Daniels concert in Shreveport, LA. I actually got to meet Charlie Daniels!
Very well organized, great communication, just a very positive experience for me everytime!!!!! Thank you VETTIX!!!!!!!!!!!
I have gone out of my way to inform fellow veterans about VetTix, just an incredible organization.
My husband served 15 years in the Military and is a Veteran of O.I.F. We have been able to go to some awesome events because of VetTix's. Our kids have been able to enjoy concerts and shows that we would have probably never been able to take them too because of VetTix. Many organizations don't offer discounts and free events to our Veterans, only active duty and VetTix always supports all who have served. Great way to show our Military and Veterans that their community supports them and their families.
My husband suffered from severe PTSD and took his own life 11 days after returning from his first tour in Iraq. I was extremely disappointed to find out that this organization does not recognize him as a veteran because he did not die 'under enemy fire'. Thus, being a veteran's widow, I cannot benefit in any way from "Vet Tix". If only more people would recognize that veterans die in many ways other than enemy fire, and it does not make them any less of a veteran who gave their life for our country.

We are very sorry for your loss and we absolutely consider your husband a veteran. That isn't the issue here. You are asking to be part of this foundation. We would require to see your DD214. Veterans themselves and Active Duty Military themselves have to create the accounts as part of our 501c3 determination letter and our "program requirements". Veterans are required to submit their DD214 and it must state Honorable discharge. Spouse or PNOK (primary next of kin) of KIA must submit Report of Casualty DD Form 1300 with a valid governmental photo id after the signup process. NOTE: Your name must be listed on the Report of Casualty DD Form 1300. All requirements are listed clearly on our http://www.vettix.org/signup.php
Vet Tix is absolutely awesome. They do what they say they will do and more. Everyone's expectations were substantially exceeded. Congratulations, Vet Tix! Keep up the good work. You're contribution to the Salute to Service event at ASU on September 1st was nothing short of extraordinary. I look forward to working with you next year. Thanks.
I've donated to VetTix a couple times and the experience has been outstanding each time. I received personal attention from their staff--who even remembered me from year to year. They are prompt, flexible, and very professional, even when there is a time crunch. I usually receive a follow-up phone call to my donation offer within 2 hours, and arrangements are set soon thereafter. I receive my donation receipt within an hour of confirming the donation. VetTix has allowed me to make someone else's day when I'm not able to attend events for which I'd bought tickets. I've recommended them many times to colleagues and fellow sporting fans. This is a wonderful service for our military and their families.
VetTix is quite simply a great organization dedicated to fulfilling the dreams of our nation's Veterans. Without VetTix, many Veterans would never be able to fulfill their dreams of seeing their favorite sports team or media event in person. That is true for me and for many other Veterans.
I am a veteran and my husband is still active after 25 years. We were recipients of tickets to a New Orleans Saints football game. I felt like we wont the lottery. The generous donor gave us her seats 20 rows from the field. We had club access to the Bunker Lounge and it was like being treated as royalty. When we got there, a security guard actually moved us up a few rows! We were utterly spoiled. We have 6 children and dont get the opportunity to get out much. Because of Vet Tix facilitating this and the true generosity of the donor, we were able to make a memory that will not soon be forgotten.
I can't say enough about the Veteran Tickets Foundation (VetTix), these guys work relentlessly around the clock to make sure that active duty military and veterans' families can attend events that are normally out of reach due to financial costs. Their system is fair for distribution of tickets and they verify each individual to make sure that they are indeed who they say they are and are currently serving or have served. VetTix allowed me and many others to attend events that were out of reach and for that I am extremely thankful!
