LA KISS Announce Auction to Benefit Veteran’s Tickets Foundation
PHOENIX, ARIZ. (April 23, 2014)- Mike Focareto, CEO of Veteran Tickets Foundation (Vet Tix) has announced that the organization has partnered with LA KISS Football to host an ongoing online auction in support of their deserving veterans.
“Football is one our most sought after tickets, getting the opportunity to partner with newest entry into the Arena Football League is outrageous,” said Focareto. “We know the KISS fans have more than a football team they get rock music, a pyrotechnics show, laser lights, and more. An enormous thanks to Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons for creating this very unique opportunity for our service members and their families.”
Rock ‘n’ roll legends Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley of the band KISS formed L.A. KISS, an indoor football team in hopes to serve their community as an inspiration and spotlight other organizations like Vet Tix.
LA KISS Co-owner Brent Bouchy stated, “Being a community advocate has always been a trademark of KISS, it just transcends into our new football team’s fans and what we stand for.
What better organization to support than Vet Tix, providing our military and their families with entertainment.”
The auction ends on Friday, April 25th; bidders can expect to see a signed football by the entire KISS band, two signature KISS Jerseys, and a KISS Helmet signed and designed by Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley. Proceeds from the winning bids will be donated to Veteran Tickets Foundation. All winners will be provided a tax deductible receipt from VetTix.
