Everyone at Ticketbud are passionate about doing good with the little time we have on this pale blue dot.  We were contacted by Rebecca Sholiton and The Dallas Leadership Council in regards to possibly hosting an event in Dallas, Texas to benefit a wonderful organization called Pencils Of Promise.  They are committed to sustainable educational opportunities around the globe, and they are doing an amazing job of tackling that.  One of the leaders in Ticketbud idolizes POP, so we were more than excited to be notified of these efforts. To understand who they are, here is a word from their founder, Adam Braun: In the process we have learned a lot. We’ve learned that education is a living, breathing entity that with the right nurturing, evolves into something spectacular. We’ve learned that every piece of its growth is a challenge and that each pencil, each dollar, each volunteer is essential. Pencils of Promise is now a global movement of passionate individuals, many of which are the most dynamic and impactful young leaders we have ever seen. They are committed to supporting a world with greater educational opportunity for all. Thousands have joined us, making contributions through acts both large and small. There are more than 75 million children without access to education, and we intend to change this. We are proof that a generation empowered will empower the world. One child, one pencil at a time. -Adam Braun.

The event is being held at the Artizen Fine Arts from 10pm-2am with Firefly Vodka, Republic Tequila and TicketBud. We are proud to let you know that 100% of the proceeds raised on August 13th will go towards building schools in developing countries and PoP programming.  In addition to the OPEN BAR, the event will be auctioning off prize packages that include Cowboys tickets, free Southwest Airlines tickets, a full set of eyelashes, a beauty blowout, and a lot more.

Get your online tickets here for the epic evening in the Big D via Ticketbud.
