Tickets-for-Charity is proud to announce that CEO, Jay Whitehead has been named Mr. L+C in the December 2012 issue of Lifestyle + Charity Magazine.
"On behalf of Tickets-for-Charity’s 110 partner charities, hundreds of thousands of TFC Insider members and over 100 corporate, team and tour ticket partners, I am proud to accept the title of Mr. L+C," said Jay Whitehead, CEO of Tickets-for-Charity, which has sold tickets for over 10,000 events and raised over $10 million for charitable organizations. "Tickets-for-Charity is at the forefront of a mega-trend in our society—the trend of turning buying into giving. Many in the media have said we are creating a new kind of fan: the ‘Fanlanthropist.’ These fans become TFC Insiders because we offer them unique access to premium tickets and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, and the opportunity to support the causes they care about most.”
Launched by a founding team member at Priceline.com, Tickets-for-Charity is a free membership community of hundreds of thousands of TFC Insiders. Being a TFC Insider gets members exclusive access to tickets from top performers such as Katy Perry, James Taylor, U2, Rolling Stones and major sports teams in all 5 major leagues, as well as hundreds of other arena and theater events. The company’s Charitable Sale™ platform is also used every day by major corporations such as JP Morgan Chase and United Healthcare that want to offer tickets to their employees and charity communities. Every ticket purchased creates a donation for TFC’s partner charities which include the American Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity, and the United Way. More information at TicketsForCharity.com.
