Do you have tickets to the opera, ballet, a play, or musical? How about tickets to a sporting event?
The Woodbury Public Schools will continue to act as a "clearinghouse" for extra tickets. We will get these tickets into the hands of families in our district. You will be able to provide an opportunity to one or more of our students -- an opportunity that may not be something he or she would typically experience.
In a July 9, 2006, letter to the editor in the Philadelphia Inquirer, Carolynn Schneider of Glassboro wrote how a trip to a "free" concert when she was a high school student introduced her to the "glory of classical music experienced in person. That first free concert led to three generations of Philadelphia Orchestra season-ticket holders . . ."
Maybe you can be the one who sparks a new interest. Even a chance for a child to witness a Phillies game in person is something that can have lasting, positive impact.
Contact my secretary, Mrs. Hoffman, at 856-853-0123 EXT. 214 if you have tickets to donate, or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you can provide us with lead time, it is appreciated, but we will be able to "turn around" the tickets with little notice.
You will be able provide a child a wonderful, new opportunity!
