Connections365 Partners with Oregon State Fair
to Raise Funds for Youth Programs
Campaign offers special, reduced Fair ticket pricing to support a good cause
Salem, Ore., June 27, 2018, 2018 — Connections365 is partnering with the 2018 Oregon State Fair to raise funds by selling advance, specially-priced admission tickets to the Fair, along with carnival ride wristbands. It is all part of All4Oregon, the Oregon State Fair’s three-prong partnership effort offering support to nonprofits throughout Oregon.
Through Connections365, adult admission tickets are available for $5 (for those 12 and older), a savings from the regular admission price of $8. In addition, carnival ride wristbands are available for $37.50, a significant savings from the regular $50 price. Connections365will earn $1 for each admission ticket sold, and $2 for each carnival ride wristband sold.
“The Oregon State Fair supports the mission of Connections365 as part of the Fair’s All4Oregon program, which benefits some of our state’s finest philanthropic and educational causes,” said Dan Cox, Oregon State Fair spokesperson. “This is a win-win situation where the public can save money on tickets to this summer’s fair, while also giving to an important nonprofit in the community.”
The special advance price offer concludes at midnight on Thursday, August 23, 2018. A link on the Connections365 website will take supporters directly to a special ticket sales page, where purchases can be completed or you can type in this link: Bit.ly/2KnbexX
