FARMINGTON, Conn. (March 17, 2017) – Ticket Galaxy, the nation’s leading secondary-market reseller has partnered with the American Red Cross in honor of Red Cross Month!
From March 19 – March 31, Ticket Galaxy will donate 15% on all purchases made through the following link: redcross.ticketgalaxy.com to the Red Cross. Valid on all sports, concerts, theater and entertainment events, Ticket Galaxy’s marketplace offers consumers a unique way to support the American Red Cross.
“We are excited to partner with Ticket Galaxy for this fundraiser,” said Mario Bruno, CEO, American Red Cross Connecticut and Rhode Island Region. “The Red Cross is a non-profit organization that relies on the generosity of the public and our volunteers to serve our mission and the community. We are thankful to Ticket Galaxy for helping us fulfill our mission through this program.”
March has been recognized as Red Cross Month for more than 70 years. All of our presidents have designated March as Red Cross Month to recognize how the American Red Cross helps people across the country and around the world.
The Red Cross depends on local heroes to fulfill its mission. Every eight minutes, Red Cross disaster workers respond to a community disaster, providing shelter, food, emotional support and other necessities to those affected. It provides 24-hour support to members of the military, veterans and their families at home and around the world. It must collect nearly 14,000 donations of blood every day to meet patient needs. It trains millions of people in first aid, water safety and other lifesaving skills. And it supports the vaccination of children around the globe against measles and rubella.
“Every day, The American Red Cross provides endless support to communities and individuals in need,” states Steve Kobelski, President of Ticket Galaxy. “Through this unique fundraising opportunity, we are proud to support a great organization, while offering our customers memorable event experiences.”

The Ticket Galaxy offices are located in South Windsor, CT and this weekend, the world famous, Harlem Globetrotters played a mere hop, skip and a jump away at the XL Center in Hartford. To celebrate our partnership as the Official Secondary Ticket Partner of the Harlem Globetrotters, Ticket Galaxy took a team outing to see the Globies live!
Prior to the show, Ticket Galaxy team members along with their invited guests, were provided a catered lunch in one of the suites at the XL Center. Prior to heading down to their seats, everyone was treated to a photo opportunity with select Harlem Globetrotters! This was great fun for the kids in attendance (as well as the big kids) as they introduced themselves and showed off the ever-famous ball spin!
Kaylee attended the event and had this to say, "Ticket Galaxy is an amazing company that has provided me with so many exciting and unforgettable experiences. The Harlem Globetrotters game was nothing short of this. I am so grateful for my time here and look forward to all that is sure to come."
The excitement continued as Ticket Galaxy employee, Eric and his young sons headed down on the court as part of the game-ball presentation. Even more exciting still was having Ticket Galaxy team members in attendance to witness the "Ticket Galaxy Seat Upgrade" that occurs at every Harlem Globetrotters event. There is a randomly selected family between the first and second quarter that gets brought down to court-side seats!
All in all it was a great day for team members to step away from their desks and enjoy an event with their family and friends all while seeing the Ticket Galaxy name and logo in bright lights around the venue!

Recently Ticket Galaxy had the opportunity to send some of our staff to the XL Center in Hartford, Connecticut to play a few pick-up games of Basketball. They divided themselves into three teams with team captains chosen according to height. Once the captains were selected, teams were chosen gym class style.
Ticket Galaxy was granted this opportunity due to a partnership with the XL Center. Rob coordinated the outing and spoke highly of the opportunity.
“It is a great and unique experience to be able to get away from the office setting for a bit and have the honor of playing basketball on the same court that some of UConn’s greatest have played on. It’s an awesome work perk, and a cool benefit from our partnership with the XL Center. We appreciate working with them, and look forward to participating again next year.”
To capture the fun, Ticket Galaxy also sent out staff members to photograph the game. Ryan said, “it was good to see the guys enjoying a few friendly pick-up games, we’re usually all working so it’s a nice change of pace. I got to be a nerd and snap some photos of them playing under the LED signage with our Ticket Galaxy branding so it best of both worlds as a Designer“.
The XL Center splits both the men and women’s basketball seasons for the University of Connecticut with Gampel Pavilion located on UCONN’s campus in Storrs. You can also catch The Hartford Wolf Pack, a hockey team part of the American Hockey League there as well as many concerts and special events.

On Saturday, November 12th the first ever TG200 will take place at Phoenix International Raceway as part of the XFINITY Race Series. What does every NASCAR race need? A trophy for the winner of course!
Ticket Galaxy turned to their 100 employees and asked anyone who was interested to submit a sketch of their design for the trophy. The winner would then get to attend the TG200! After pouring over the submissions, the designs were narrowed down to three. From there, all of the Ticket Galaxy employees were asked to vote for their favorite.
The winning design will debut in the Fan Midway on site at Phoenix International Raceway on Friday, November 11th and those in attendance can head over to Ticket Galaxy’s designated area and take a photo with the trophy!
Check out the top three designs below and don’t forget to comment to let us know which is your favorite!
Each year, Ticket Galaxy breaks away from the office and enjoys a team outing! Previous outings include dinner and games at Dave and Busters, taking in a minor-league baseball game and a beach picnic. This year the team rooted for the blue and white at a University of Connecticut football game when they played the University of Maine on September 1st. Prior to the game, everyone enjoyed beverages and BBQ food and then they headed up to the suites to watch the UCONN Huskies beat the Bears 24-21. These outings are a great way for co-workers to talk outside of the office and have a little fun!
It was a late night for many members of our team, as they volunteered after-hours to be part of Ticket Galaxy's first national video spot. Filmed at UConn's Gampel Pavilion, 40 'extras' followed our lead actor and actress to have their ticket scanned into the venue. Airing nationally this Fall and Winter, you can see the spot at many of our partnership games including the University of Connecticut, streamed events on World Series of Fighting, Ticket Galaxy 200 and more.
