Ticket Donation Requests

ticket-donation-requestThank you for your interest in including Horizon Theatre Company in the silent auction portion of your charitable event.

Guidelines

Horizon Theatre Company receives many requests for charitable auction donations each year. We are happy to support worthy causes but do ask for two things from organizations in return.

  1. Have someone from your organization volunteer as an usher during one of our shows. By being involved in the arts, one can really appreciate what it takes to make live theatre happen. You may call the Box Office at 404.584.7450 to schedule a time to usher.
  2. Write to one of our government funding sources to let them know how important arts funding is to your organization and/or to your community. By thanking them for funding the arts, you help assure that it keeps on happening! For a sample letter and commissioner contact information, scroll to the bottom of the page. When you have completed the letter, please send a copy with your request for our files.

Requests

No phone calls, please. Mail, fax, or email a written request on the organization’s letterhead at least eight weeks in advance to:

Horizon Theatre Company typically provides 2 tickets valid on Wednesday-Friday night of performances for any show in the current season. The value of these tickets is $60.

Mr. William “Bill” Edwards
Fulton County Board of Commissioners

Dear Mr. Edwards:

I am writing as a supporter of community arts funding. I understand and welcome the Fulton County Board of Commissioners’ unwavering support of community arts organizations in Atlanta. Your support is crucial and will facilitate the success and continued growth of Atlanta’s arts organizations.

As an employee of a non-profit organization, we depend on the kindness of citizens and businesses of our community to help fund our programs. Most often, our fundraising events include silent auctions and we solicit throughout the community for auction items. We have received enormous amounts of tickets from the arts community, including Horizon Theatre Company. Their commitment to building stronger partnerships within Atlanta is to be applauded.

Please continue to support the arts in Atlanta. Without them, we are all affected.

Sincerely,
(your name here)
