In 2011, Ticketfly and our clients participated in A Night of Sweet Relief, a night of live music benefitting elder, ill and disabled musicians in need. The event was a success, with Ticketfly’s generous clients donating more than any other ticketing provider’s client base. We knew we were working with some good folks! Since then, we have established Ticketfly Causes and now we’re in with Sweet Relief for the long haul.
Established in 1994, Sweet Relief has raised and distributed millions of dollars to pay for medical costs, housing, food and other vital expenses of ill, disabled and elder musicians, singers, composers and arrangers. Sweet Relief has decided to extend the 2012 event into two nights. If you’re a fan, you’ll be able to buy tickets to participating events on December 7th or 8th, and $1 of your purchase will go to Sweet Relief Musicians’ Cancer Fund. Easy!
Ticketfly Clients who want to get involved can email firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out this form letting us know. With your permission, Ticketfly will add a $1 online fee to your events on 12/7 and 12/8 that will be displayed to the customer as “Musicians’ Cancer Fund Donation” with a link for additional info.
