Giving Something to Those Who Gave: Our Partnership With Vet Tix
Founded in 2008, the Veteran Tickets Foundation’s (Vet Tix) purpose has been reducing stress, strengthening family bonds and building life-long memories for active military (including Guard and Reserves), veterans, caretakers of veterans, families of those killed in action, first responders, including current and retired law enforcement, as well as firefighters and EMTs. With tickets to live events and activities, Vet Tix aims to encourage veterans and service members to reconnect with their local communities and create shared, positive experiences with their families, during and after their years of service to our country.
Since we began our partnership with Vet Tix in July of 2017, Ticketmaster has extended the reach of our clients beyond the traditional marketplace to help move inventory through committed partners. Not only have we had the opportunity to contribute over 1.4 million tickets to veterans, service members and their families, but we have the honor of helping them be reintroduced back into civilian life. As the largest partner of Vet Tix, we strive to enrich the lives of veterans, service members and their families and generate social good in our communities through the power of live – honoring and supporting the men and women who have served.
Here are some first-hand testimonials with Vet Tix:
“Once more I get to thank VetTix and Ticketmaster for providing a wonderful service for veterans. I can not express enough how thankful I am to have such an opportunity to get out of my comfort zone. These events help in more ways than can be written here.”
“Thank you to Live Nation and Vettix for the chance to see Jeff Lynne’s ELO live in concert. I have wanted to see ELO ever since I was a kid. The show was awesome. My wife and I loved it. Thanks again to LIVE NATION for all you do for veterans and their families! When we purchase tickets to other events, we always try to use Live Nation / Ticketmaster first, as our way to say thanks for all of your ticket donations to Vettix.com.”
“I can’t thank Vet Tix and Ticketmaster enough for the tickets to the Black Keys show. It was an incredible experience that I was fortunate enough to share with family and friends. The memories will last a lifetime! Thank you!”
“Once again Live Nation has blessed so many veterans. The seats were amazing and two bucket list performers finally seen in person. Willie Nelson and Allison Krause were amazing. But every performer put on a great show. I reached out and talked to several veterans at the show, a couple who did not know of Vet Tix and suffer from PTSD. They are signing up and also to Live Nation. The battle against veteran suicide is being won because of support from awesome people like those at Live Nation. One veteran I talked to has 6 kids and was floored by Live Nation’s generosity. I am humbled by the real change in our veterans through such great music and fellowship. Thank you again.”
