Community Foundation Donor Gifts over 1,600 Circus Tickets to Low-Income Children

September 27, 2012

The Community Foundation for the National Capital Region—through a generous donation from an anonymous supporter—invited over 1,600 low-income children and family members to see the Big Apple Circus on Sunday, September 23. (The donor bought out the entire Big Top for the festivities.) Tickets to the event were distributed to non-profits in the DC metro area that serve children and families, including homeless shelters, foster care groups, afterschool programs, and those who work to prevent domestic violence.

“I’m so grateful for this incredibly generous donation, and the joy it brought to the children and their families,” said Terri Lee Freeman, President of The Community Foundation. Terri served as Honorary Ringmaster for the event (ringmaster hat and all). “I’m also grateful for the opportunity to perform under the Big Top. My staff can’t wait to frame a picture of me in the hat!”

The show, LEGENDARIUM!, took place at Dulles Town Center in Dulles, Virginia.
