The City of Dallas and its 12,000 employees are now among the latest to join the nonprofit AT&T Performing Arts Center’s growing Corporate Circle. It’s a “perk” that’s highly valued by employees at firms across North Texas. It reduces ticket prices and puts them in a position to get tickets in advance of the general public.
During the announcement to the Dallas City Council, Mayor Pro Tem Tennell Atkins praised the Center’s efforts to make it easier for the city’s employees to get tickets to exciting shows. “I really appreciate the AT&T [Performing Arts Center] for helping the city employees to come down and see our great arts district,” Atkins said.
A company or organization joins the Corporate Circle by making a contribution to the nonprofit Center, with different benefits at different levels of giving. But at all levels of the Corporate Circle, employees can access a customized company portal where they receive special advantages, including tickets free of service fees and a corporate group rate when available. They also are find out about shows, and can purchase tickets before the general public. Last year, employees from around the region saved more than $68,000 through Corporate Circle memberships. Members of Corporate Circle range from Fortune 500 to small businesses, including AT&T, Texas Instruments, Deloitte, Chase, Bank of America, Dallas County and many more. It’s a way corporations can both support the arts, and benefit their staff.
“We are always seeking ways to engage more people in the arts,” says Doug Curtis, president and CEO at the Center. “When organizations join the Corporate Circle, companies can provide a great benefit for their employees, and more people can access the Center’s top-notch shows… it’s a win-win for all involved.”
