"We are proud to be associated with the NATB, which has approximately 175 member ticket brokers in the United States," said Marty Coyne, president and CEO of RMHC. "RMHC and our local Chapters rely on the generous donations of our corporate partners and NATB is providing valuable contributions in terms of volunteers and entertainment for our families. Our families are going through difficult medical situations with their child, and NATB is giving them a chance to relax and take their mind off their worries - if only for a few moments. This partnership is a natural extension of our mission to support families - both financially and emotionally - during a very difficult time in their lives."

In August 2009, NATB will commence their partnership by launching their "32 for 32" program. This three year initiative will donate 32 tickets for every NFL preseason game in each of the 32 NFL markets. NATB members will also donate tickets for other sporting events, concerts and the performing arts. Additionally, NATB members will donate 32 hours of volunteerism in each of those 32 NFL markets. And this is just the beginning, as other initiatives will be announced in the coming months. NATB also hopes to establish a unique ticket donation and volunteer program that encourages its members to get involved with local Ronald McDonald Houses and RMHC events in their community.

"The NATB is proud to partner with such an incredible organization. Several of our members have worked with Houses on a local level by donating tickets and volunteering to cook a meal. Now, we get to take it National and give back in a big way," said Tom Patania, NATB President. "When we first brought this opportunity to our board, the vote was unanimous. Our membership is completely dedicated to helping these kids and their families in any way we can."

Here, family members can sleep, eat, relax and find support from other families in similar situations. The House program allows families to stay together, which helps aid in the healing process. There are more than 287 Ronald McDonald Houses open in 30 countries and regions worldwide.

About National Association of Ticket Brokers

The NATB was formed in 1994 by a group of concerned ticket brokers who desired to establish an industry-wide standard of conduct and to create ethical rules and procedures to protect the public and foster a positive perception of the industry. While the goals of the NATB are many, our primary goal is to represent the interests of legitimate ticket brokers by promoting consumer protection and educating the public about our industry. This is done by assuring the public that when dealing with an NATB member, they are working with an honest, reliable broker that will deliver what is promised. In addition, the NATB has created a platform that allows the public to report unethical conduct by ticket brokers.

About NATB Gives Back

NATB Gives Back was formed by the NATB Board of Directors with the mission of making a positive impact in the communities which support its member businesses. NATB Gives Back endeavors to do this by providing leadership, programs, and education to the NATB members and by forging partnerships with charitable and community organizations.
