Nashville, TN. (December 7, 2015)
In partnership with the MLB and MiLB (Minor League Baseball), Veteran Tickets Foundation has provided nearly 80,000 tickets; which is 15% of the forecasted total of 530,000 tickets that Vet Tix will provide this year to military members from all across the country.
“Veteran Tickets Foundation has been overwhelmed by the generosity of our season ticket donors, team ticket donors and partner organizations in 2015. With their support our military, veterans and their families have been able to access more than 530,000 tickets to events in all 50 states. This is an increase of more than 100,000 tickets over last year,” said Edward Rausch Chief Operating Officer, chairman & founder of the Veteran Tickets Foundation.
These donations go a long way in providing our military veterans with great memories of our national past time, peace of mind and entertainment that many don’t get to experience. Our most recent online survey of more than 28,000 respondents backs this claim when it found that 79% of all members don’t attend events because they cannot afford it, while 15% found that the comfort of being around other veterans in public at these events is the biggest reason for attending. In another survey it was noted a family of four spends approximately $100 at a game on team items, parking and refreshments.
