NO MORE NO-SHOWS!

WE HOPE YOU APPRECIATE THE ENTERTAINMENT OPPORTUNITIES OUR TICKET PARTNERS ARE PROVIDING. PLEASE HONOR YOUR COMMITMENT BY SHOWING UP WHEN YOU SIGN UP FOR ANY EVENT. 

For those of you who are consistent at honoring your commitment, we are going to hold a giveaway in January 2017 of an Apple IPad.  This will go to the member who has consistently demonstrated that they can keep their word and show up for events!  Winner will be selected at random from all registered events for July 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016.  Good luck!

 

NOTICE REGARDING EARLY PICKUP OF TICKETS - ALL MEMBERS PLEASE READ!

Remember to read events carefully.  If there is no early pickup mentioned on the Event (and most times there are not!), then please do not contact the Box Office to ask about picking up tickets early.  The Box Office is already swamped with paying customers in the days before an event and cannot always make time to print up individual comp tickets for non-profits. That's why we send the guest lists!  We don't want to jeopardize our relationship with our venues, so please follow this request! Thank you!

 

REMINDER:

PLEASE CHECK YOUR PROFILE ON OUR WEBSITE AND MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A VALID MAILING ADDRESS AND PHONE NUMBER.  JUST LOGIN ON THE EVENT TAB AND CLICK AT THE TOP RIGHT WHERE IT SAYS WELCOME.  

 

FOR ACTIVE MILITARY: The following theaters have a standing military discount price of $7.50 for nearly all shows: Eastgate, Esquire, Mariemont and Kenwood (check with ticket office for details). Just show your active military ID!  We thank our ticket partners for supporting our military!
