Your Sponsorship also provides benefits that include free performance tickets, program ads, marquee recognition and much more. Your Sponsorship reaches out to a broad community by supporting the Kelly Circle Program, which allows you to assist both a favorite community service organization and CLO with one gift to the CLO, and allowing the CLO to offer free performance tickets to groups such as the Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Family House, senior centers or other organizations of your choice.
