The purpose of UFPA’s Partners Program is to distribute tickets to non-profit charitable organizations in the Heart of Florida region, while simultaneously enriching our community through the performing arts, making it a culturally vibrant and desirable place to live.
Groups requesting tickets for UFPA-presented performances may use them in one of three ways:
- As an auction item for a fundraising event
- An a raffle item for a fundraising event
- To bring a group to a performance
Due to contractual obligations, UFPA is not able to provide tickets for certain performances during the 2013-2014 for use as auction or raffle items. Please make note of this when submitting your application.
Tickets for the following performances will not be available during the 2013-2014 Season:
Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story
Straight No Chaser
Man of La Mancha
Million Dollar Quartet
If you have any questions please contact Amy Douglas, APR.
All ticket requests must be received by September 20. Requests will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Requests received after Sept. 20 will be filled as they can be accommodated.
In addition, groups which respond by Sept. 20 will be automatically registered to receive emails with updated free ticket availability for programs presented during the season. Groups may request tickets for these events by replying to the email or by calling 352-273-2476. These tickets are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
After receiving tickets, organizations will need to demonstrate how the tickets were used as well as the impact and value the tickets had on their organization’s publics by filling out a post-event assessment survey.
Organizations will be required to re-apply each season. Reminder letters and applications will be sent out July 1 and must be returned by the deadline in September each year for the organization to remain in the ticket distribution pool.
For auction or raffle events, University of Florida Performing Arts must be acknowledged as the donor of the tickets in writing and include the UFPA website address:
“Tickets for (event name) donated by University of Florida Performing Arts. www.performingarts.ufl.edu.”
