For the first time ever since 2007 when we became involved with the Green Band at Kennedy, all of the 750 benefit concerts tickets have been distributed. So it is a complete sell out. Attendees will have to have a ticket to be admitted. I know some of you host families have asked if we reserve seating and we tried to our first year in 2007 reserving the 2nd section for host families. But it became apparent some host families like the 1st section better and some the balcony. Obviously some of you have extended families that received tickets and it was difficult at best for everyone to sit together. So your seating for this concert on Wednesday, January 2nd is first come, first serve. I would recommend for the immediate host family attendees, you arrive and get in line no later than 5:15pm-5:30pm to ensure you can find the best seating available. The Will Call window will be open at 5:15pm. The doors will open at 6pm. Concert starts at 6:30pm.
