COURT HOUSE – Linda Gentille & The Jersey Shore Pops is proud to announce a partnership with Veteran Tickets Foundation, (also known as “Vet Tix”) to provide complimentary tickets to U.S. veterans. These tickets are offered to veterans for the holiday production, “Buglers Holiday” Dec. 13, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. (Limit of 2 complimentary tickets per family.

The show, Buglers Holiday will feature many local stars including conductor Linda Gentille, The Dueling Violins, Percussionist Ray Deeley, Sopranos Jacklyn Buckingham and Michelle English, Clifford Buggs and Baritone Ron Baker.
Founder of Vet Tix Michael Focareto attended the Super Bowl in 2008, and noticed that the seat next to him was left empty throughout the entire event. He wondered why the seat could not have been given to one of the military members who presented on the field before the game started. He vowed to find a way for those opportunities not to go to waste, and Vet Tix was born.
President of the Jersey Shore Pops, Dr Nick Holland states, “We are proud to join Vet Tix in helping Americans to say thank you to those who have served our country. I served in the Air Force and understand the sacrifice that so many of our veterans have made. We will be offering a limited number of these free tickets for those that serve during our season.”
100 tickets will be available for Veterans and this offer will expire Dec. 7, 2014.
