WBAI and Bronx for Change Promote UniverSoul Circus Performances in the Bronx

Here is something different. There is a circus coming to the Bronx!!! I can't recall this happening in the past. If anyone does remember a circus coming to the Bronx, please do let me know. The informational e-mail and flyer was sent by an organization called "Bronx for Change". WBAI or 99.5 is also a sponsor of the event. As per the e-mail it seems as if some free or discounted tickets are available. Even at the advertised $16.50 price it seems well worth it. Please do call the number below for additional information. Who doesn’t love the circus?

Bronx for Change Family & Friends Night with UniverSoooul Circus!

All you have to do to enjoy these benefits too is print out this E-flyer and present it at the Circus' tent box office which will be set up at 149th & Exterior Streets for their shows as of March 16th.

If you are interested in purchasing tickets for a group of 20 or more (youth groups, schools, seniors, churches), I can provide you with a direct number to call to avoid paying the additional ticketmaster surcharges per ticket.

Bronx for Change is honored to have been selected by UniverSoul Circus in this partnership. As such, Bronx for Change has already afforded a few lucky winners complimentary tickets to the show via our partnership with WBAI 99.5 FM! Bronx for Change is taking the Highbridge Public School 126 Community Dancers and TriLatino Juniors Triathlon Club to the show. BFC is also bringing a sneak preview of the show to a local Bronx public school as a treat for the kids! We are also vetting a local Bronx performing artist(s) to be the teen show opener on Thursday, March 17th, at 4:30PM!

For someone who has yet to see the show, I'm already PSYCHED!

Hope to see you at the show too!!
