Vet Tix is an organization that provides free event tickets (theater, concerts, sporting, etc.) to veterans, active duty and retired service persons. I heard about it from the VA.gov website. This is a 501-C3 organization, registered as Veteran Tickets Foundation in Tempe, Arizona, that claims to use 95% of its income to deliver its services.
Currently, I receive daily email notices of tickets for the types of events I selected I want to be notified about in the area (venues throughout the tristate region). So far I’ve taken advantage of a few of their offers. They both seem very legitimate and transparent. Some theater events even include Broadway and off Broadway Shows. Sporting events range from baseball , soccer, and football to mixed martial arts.
I know you’re involved with various veterans’ organizations in Greenburgh and thought you might wish to pass on the link to any veteran or service member who wishes to take advantage of the service. There are no charges to join, a requirement that proof of service be provided through the VA or government links, and after tickets are issued a small charge (generally around $12 or $13 total regardless of number of tickets used) for the ticket issue processing.
There is a requirement that the veteran, and his or her guests, must actually use the tickets. There are penalties for those who may attempt to resell or give away their tickets.
The link to the Vet Tix is: https://www.vettix.org/ref/2040219 or if people don’t wish to use this link (which gives me credit for referrals) they can just got to https://www.vettix.org/. Please feel free to pass this information on to as many people or organizations in the community you desire.
The organization’s mission statement from their website (https://www.vettix.org/) reads:
