Life is Nutz is sponsoring a comedy benefit to raise money for The Seat Swap, who provides sports events tickets and and any addtional expenses for the upcoming event on March 25 at the Crowne Plaza Boston Natick in Natick, MA.
Life is Nutz, a company dedicated to raising money for several select charities by selling Life is Nutz apparel and accessories, today announced their latest partnership and comedy event to help raise money and awareness for The Seat Swap.
The Seat Swap is a unique, non-profit ticket exchange that allows generous ticket holders to donate unwanted, or potentially unused, sports event tickets for children who are emotionally, financially, or physically unable to afford tickets on their own.
Emceeing The Seat Swap event will be Mike Adams, a beloved figure in Boston Sports. His radio program, Planet Mikey, broadcasts weeknights on WEEI Sports Radio Network. Adams, a 3-time Emmy Awards winner, has been recognized as Boston's Best Sports Anchor two years in a row. "Having been a little 'Nutz' my whole life, this event seems perfect for me. I love comedy, sports and especially kids more than anything, and being able to connect them all for a great cause is perfect", commented Mikey Adams.
Joining Mikey Adams are well-known comedians, Joey Carrol, Jack Lynch, Mike Whitman and local funny lady, Jessica Casciano.
"We want to make a difference in the lives of kids," stated Life is Nutz, Bill Beers, chief executive officer. "There are countless kids and families who have never experienced a live Red Sox game, Bruins, or Celtics event. We love what The Seat Swap is doing for these families and we want to help," continued Beers.
Inspired by witnessing the joy and pride of a terminally ill child attending his first Boston Red Sox game through Make-A-Wish foundation, The Seat Swap specializes in only providing tickets to sporting events and the experience that encompasses the game. .
"We are finding these experiences to be just as rewarding for the deserving guardian as well. In most of these cases, the child and guardian/parent have shared more trauma, heartache, struggle or suffering together and have few moments of pure happiness and positive memories as a family or pair-so you not only have given a good memory to a child, but to the parent as well." Jackye Colligan, Founder

About The Seat Swap
In addition to the "ticket exchange", The Seat Swap also fulfills the monetary expenses that occur at a game (from transportation, food, merchandise, and memorabilia).
The Seat Swap is a new and unique, 501-c3 non-profit that allows children throughout Massachusetts, who are emotionally, financially, or physically unable to afford tickets on their own, to attend Major League sporting events. Tickets are mainly donated by generous ticket holders, and the Seat Swap then covers all additional expenses for the family to fully enjoy the positive experience without worry or concern. The Seat Swap is dedicated to creating memories that will last a lifetime, by giving the gift of the game!
We give Smiles.
We give Memories.
