How Rock 4A Reason Raised Thousands for Medical Research Using Ticketbud

Rock 4A Reasons For the second year in row, Rock 4A Reason has rocked the stage at their annual benefit concert featuring Minneapolis’ best rock bands all while raising money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.  100% of the proceeds from the concert and silent auctions go towards cutting-edge pediatric medical research. The masterminds behind the event, Elizabeth Squire r4arand Jyme Butterfass say that the idea for the concert was born from their mutual love for the local music scene and charitable giving. “We came up with the idea of Rock 4A Reason after joining the St. Jude Heroes Program…We thought it would be more fun and rewarding to host a benefit concert than to simply ask people to donate to our fundraising efforts.  Our first Rock 4A Reason benefit concert in 2013 was a much bigger success than we had imagined!” says Squire. After a larger-than-anticipated turnout for their inaugural concert last year, they blew their fundraising goals out of the water with a whopping $1400! As a result, they wanted to take their next year’s concert to the next level and soon decided that online ticketing was the best way to do that.  After some exploring and tinkering with Ticketbud, they were hooked. “We had nothing short of a stellar experience with Ticketbud.  The event creation process was very streamlined.  Integration of Ticketbud into our website was very simple and looked very professional, and managing ticket sales online could not have been easier.  Ticket purchasers received their tickets very quickly, and many people commented on how simple it was to pay for their tickets online.” And it turns out, Ticketbud was exactly what they needed. Rock 4A Reason 2014 raised upwards of $2,000! Let’s continue to see such incredible growth next year! ” We will definitely be using Ticketbud for Rock 4A Reason 2015, and I would highly recommend Ticketbud to anyone looking for online ticketing!” To learn more about this rockin’ philanthropic event, check out]]]]> ]]>
