What is 1st Tix
1st Tix is a program of the Veteran Tickets Foundation (Vet Tix), a national 501c3 nonprofit. The 1st Tix mission is to provide tickets to sporting events, concerts, performing arts, and family activities in appreciation for our 1st responders service to their communities. We strive to show community support, improve mental welfare and enrich the lives of our 1st Responders.
Who We Serve
We serve current and retired law enforcement officers, firefighters (including volunteers), nurses, EMTs, and paramedics. Since 2008, we have given out over 15.2 million tickets and are active in all 50 states!
How Attending Events Helps
Receiving tickets for their service lets our law enforcement, firefighters, and paramedics know that their community supports their profession.

We know that strong family bonds and community support are essential tools for 1st responders as they navigate through their dangerous and often traumatic professions. Positive social support buffers against stress and is associated with better psychological and physical functioning. Attending events initiates positive social interactions helping to foster and maintain meaningful relationships. Having a strong social network also protects against isolating tendencies which can increase depression and anxiety symptoms.

1st Tix offers such a diverse range of events that it is easy and appealing for 1st responders to use our services, regardless of age or physical ability. We make it possible for retired responders to take their grandchildren to Disney on Ice, for a family to enjoy an afternoon together cheering on their local team or to experience to magic of the Nutcracker ballet. Vet Tix offers multiple tickets allowing 1st responders to go with family and other responders. Repeated experiences at a range of events helps veterans build a better social structure, both within their families and their communities. The overall result is a higher quality of life.

Vet Tix was a lifesaver last year. Brandi seriously went so far above and beyond for us on so many shows, I don't even know where to begin thanking her for the awesome job she did. Brandi has always been so efficient and reliable, and I know without a doubt I can always count on Brandi and Vet Tix to help us make every show magical.

Brandi is always quick to respond and hugely helpful throughout the year! VetTix is an extremely valued partnership - especially given the military emphasis in the San Diego market. Thank you for all of your hard work and support with Live Nation shows!
