2022 Community Outreach Tickets

Application Deadline is Sunday, March 20 at 11:00pm (CT)


Only social service organizations in Louisiana are eligible to apply. No individuals may apply.

Community Outreach tickets are distributed through nonprofit social service organizations that provide direct, ongoing services to low-income residents of Louisiana. These may include educational, religious, government and community agencies – but only those that provide direct, ongoing services to low-income clients.

Tickets are NOT to be used by current or former staff members, board members, donors, or sponsors of the applying organization, or their families, except in cases where a chaperon is required. Tickets may not be sold in any way. They are not to be used as raffle items or for fund-raising purposes. They are to be distributed based on financial need and availability, and, in certain approved cases, as rewards or incentives for the clients’ good behavior. Any recipients of Community Outreach Tickets who are found to violate these guidelines will be permanently barred from receiving tickets through this program in the future.
