Tickets for Kids

BBBS MC Brandy-Ciara 6.8.151Big Brothers Big Sisters of Jefferson, Elk, and McKean is an agency partner with Tickets for Kids Charities, a Pittsburgh-based organization which obtains unused and unsold tickets and distributes them to organizations serving economically disadvantaged and at-risk children. As a result, our matches have additional opportunities for free tickets to museums, zoos, theatre productions, and sporting events. The following are a list of ticket opportunities that are typically available on a regular basis for both Bigs and Littles to attend together, for FREE, as a match. Also be sure to ask your Big Brothers Big Sisters match support staff about tickets available for current theatre productions and seasonal opportunities, such as holiday light shows and amusement parks. If you are interested in participating in any Tickets for Kids activities, you must request the tickets through the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Jefferson, Elk, and McKean program. Tickets for Kids requires that most requests be made at least three weeks in advance. Tickets for Kids requests are not ever a guarantee. Some events have very limited availability, and tickets are distributed to a number of youth-serving organizations. Failure to utilize awarded tickets may result in inability to make future requests for your match. Photos, thank you letters, stories, and quotes from ticket users are greatly appreciated by the Tickets for Kids Charities.
