SUMMER STOCK UP FOOD DRIVE AND FUNDRAISER
Blue Man Group offers free tickets in exchange for donations at Summer Stock Up food drive May 21
Blue Man Group at The Venetian teams up with Three Square for a fundraiser and Summer Stock Up food drive from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 21.
In support of the nonprofit organization, Blue Man Group hosts the Summer Stock Up food drive where locals can bring nonperishable food items to the Blue Man Group Theatre inside The Venetian from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 21. In exchange for their donations, Blue Man Group will offer one complimentary ticket per person to either the 7 or 10 p.m. performance the same evening and a 15 percent off coupon to the Blue Man Group retail store. To participate, patrons must bring a bag of nonperishable food from Three Square’s list of needed items. This list includes items such as single-serving cereal boxes, fruit cups, granola and breakfast bars, crackers or cookie packs, sunflower seed packets, pop-top canned fruit, trail mix and raisins. All food collected will benefit children from low income homes, who are unable to take advantage of school lunch programs due to summer break.
Las Vegas supporters unable to attend the food drive can still participate in Blue Man Group’s summer fundraiser to help Three Square. Beginning May 5, locals can use the discount code “3 SQUARE LOCALS 50” to receive 50 percent off Blue and Red Zone tickets for shows Friday, May 20 through Sunday, June 19. Blue Man Group will donate 50 percent of the proceeds raised from tickets purchased, up to $10,000, using the special code to Three Square.
