TicketNetwork Staff Gives Back, Donating Holiday Party Funds to Charity

Hundreds receive clothing, boots and other necessities after $20,000 in donations

South Windsor, Connecticut - December 18, 2019 -Hundreds of families will be sharing in a bit more warmth this holiday season as recipients of brand new clothing, jackets, and boots donated by TicketNetwork staff to organizations serving families in both Connecticut in New York. More than $20,000 worth of clothing is finding its way to those in need, after staff of the leading software provider in the secondary ticketing marketplace voted – by a 7-to-1 margin – to donate the cost of what would have been a lavish holiday gathering to those in need.

“It was fantastic to see that our staff voted so overwhelmingly to give back, but it wasn’t surprising,” says CEO Don Vaccaro, whose facilities staff worked with local charities across Connecticut and New York to identify more than 400 individuals, determine their sizes, purchase, sort, and distribute thousands of jackets, sweaters, boots, hats, gloves, and sweatsuits in just over a week. “To make the choice to sacrifice something in order to make things a little brighter for someone you don’t even know is a real reflection of the quality of people we have working here for us.”

Company staff helped sort through the articles of clothing, which were delivered to the organizations on Tuesday. Families are receiving these articles just as the weather turns bitter cold in New England.

“I’m delighted to join Don Vaccaro in another adventure for the community in which I serve,” says Reverend Dr. Boise Kimber, who helped TicketNetwork staff identify the organizations receiving the donations. “We have worked together in a number of ways to help empower communities that are, at times, so powerless. We thank TicketNetwork and its staff for their consistent and persistent help to these low-income communities.”

Organizations receiving aid include First Calvary Baptist Church (New Haven), Macedonia Church (Norwalk), Full Circle Youth Empowerment (Bridgeport), New Antioch Baptist Church (Hartford), Mark of Excellence Preschool (Stamford), Harris Tucker Nursery (Hamden), Gifts of Love (Avon), and Grace Baptist Church (Mt. Vernon, NY).
