Special Offer for Lion King Tickets Ends Soon

Time is running out on the APS Education Foundation’s special offer of tickets for the Oct. 11 performance of Disney’s “The Lion King.”

This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is a fundraiser for the Foundation, the 501 (c)(3) nonprofit that raises money and public awareness for four key programs in the state’s largest school district: Fine Arts, Middle/High School Activities, Literacy and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).

By purchasing tickets through the Foundation, you are paying a slightly higher price than you would when tickets go on sale to the public in February. But when you buy your tickets now, you and your family are guaranteed to have a terrific seat for a production that had Broadway audiences buzzing for years. And you’ll watch it in the state’s premier fine arts venue, Popejoy Hall on the University of New Mexico campus.

The Foundation believes all children should be exposed to the finest in Fine Arts. We have already purchased 50 tickets that will go into a lottery so children and families of limited means may see the show. By helping the Foundation, you guarantee we will be able to continue this kind of work, which benefits the 90,000 children in APS.

We thank you for your consideration, we thank you for caring about kids, and we hope you enjoy the show!

Here are a few things to remember:


  • This very special performance is Thursday, Oct. 11, 2012, at 7:30 p.m.
