Thousands of senior citizens in Los Angeles would love to attend the theater, opera, ballet or a concert.Â But for many, the price of a ticket is prohibitive.Â Enter Adopt-A-Senior Citizen. Created by veteran theater director Mark W. Travis, Adopt-A-Senior Citizen invites individuals to “˜adopt”™ a senior by donating a few dollars toward the purchase of those tickets.
Travis is piloting Adopt-A-Senior Citizen with Arthur Miller”™s The Price at Theatre West in Los Angeles.
Launched in January 2010, AASC has received significant donations from across the country and as far away as England, Germany, and Ireland.
For just $17 a donor can assure that one senior citizen is able to enjoy an evening of theatre.Â Of course, donations of any amount are accepted.Â One hundred percent of each donation will go toward the purchase of tickets.Â Â All donations are tax-deductible.
Donations to Adopt-A-Senior Citizen can be made via PayPal to [email protected]
