BIG APPLE CIRCUS NEWS---
 

Big Apple Circus is always a hit when it comes to Louodun! The shows runs through Oct. 8.
(Sept. 20, 2012) - The Community Foundation for the National Capital Region—through a generous donation from an anonymous supporter—has invited over 1,600 low-income children and family members to see the Big Apple Circus on Sunday, Sept. 23 at 12:30 p.m. at Dulles Town Center. (The donor bought out the entire Big Top that day for the festivities.) Tickets 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.

“So many children and families in our region don’t have access to this kind of opportunity. This is where the generosity of our donors can make such a difference,” said Terri Lee Freeman, President of The Community Foundation. Terri will serve as Honorary Ringmaster for the event (ringmaster hat and all). “I’m grateful for this incredibly generous donation, and the joy it will undoubtedly bring to our families. I’m also excited about the chance to perform – and my staff can’t wait to see pictures of me in the hat.”
The show, LEGENDARIUM!, will take place at Dulles Town Center in Dulles, Virginia. The event is free for low-income children and families, and because no circus is complete without popcorn, each ticket comes with a complimentary $10 concession voucher.
