Ticket Donors

“In partnership with Kids Up Front, Ballet BC donates hundreds of tickets to its dance performances each season.  As Artistic Director, I have experienced the amazing response from recipients: they have been moved, they’ve been inspired, and a whole new world has opened up to them. I hope you will join me in supporting Kids Up Front and its dedication to enriching the lives of deserving BC kids.”

 – Emily Molnar, Artistic Director of Ballet BC

“I was not going to renew my Lions tickets next year because I couldn’t make it to quite a few games during the past season. However, after getting the personalized thank you notes from the kids who went to the games, I have decided to renew. Even if I can’t make it to a single game next year and need to donate all of my tickets, just knowing that these kids appreciate the tickets and take the time to write thank yous really touches my heart.”

- Susan, Ticket Donor
