SEATS FOR SERVICE MEMBERS
In the spring of 2008, PPAC initiated a pilot Seats for Service Members program to provide preferred orchestra seats to members of Rhode Island’s National Guard and their families to our Broadway Series and Encore Series. The program was met with such resounding success that we were able to raise enough money to continue it again for a seventh consecutive season and expand it to USO New England members and families in Rhode Island. We only hope that the Seats for Service Members program will let the thousands of men and women, who selflessly dedicate themselves to protecting our country, know how much we greatly appreciate their outstanding sacrifices and courageous efforts!
If you are interested in sponsoring this program, please contact Claudia Zompa, Development Coordinator, at 401-574-3122 or via email.

Colin Kane, Admiral of the Rhode Island Commodores, led a delegation to personally thank military families for their service. "We're thrilled to once again join PPAC as a sponsor of the Seats for Service Members program. It is a great way of showing our support and gratitude for our military and their families."
