EVENT TICKET DONATIONS
We often receive donated event tickets. We offer these to our Bigs to use with their Little for a special outing. These tickets assist our Bigs in providing new experiences to the children. Examples of these tickets include professional sporting games (Bulls, Bears, Blackhawks, White Sox, Cubs, Chicago Fire), theater performances, concerts and community events. If you are interested in donating any tickets please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
**Please note: Many times, our matches cannot use tickets for daytime/afternoon games and events during the week. We do not want tickets to go unused, so it is best to contact us first before emailing or mailing your ticket donation.
To ensure timely delivery to our matches, we prefer to have ticket donations in-hand at least 48 hours in advance of the event. If you are donating electronic tickets, 24 hours advance notice is appreciated or just transfer them to email@example.com.
