Florida Atlantic University has been finding ways to help get people to attend sporting events who might not otherwise be able to attend a game.

Under the Send-A-Kid program, local companies purchase a minimum of 50 tickets at a discounted rate and then donate at least half of the tickets to nonprofit organizations. That gives underprivileged kids a chance to watch the Owls play.

The tickets are for the men’s and women’s basketball, baseball and football games. Those who donate receive recognition on the public address system.

This program is also allows season ticket holders who are not able to attend games donate their tickets, as well.

“I feel that this program has given our season ticket holders an opportunity to give their unused tickets to a good cause rather than leave them sitting on their desk when they can’t attend,” said Christine Davis, director of ticket operations.

This program tries to get area companies involved in the sports program a smaller level, not necessarily as a sponsor.

“It also provides children residing in the area they live in with a little something extra,” Davis said.
