Ticket Donations

This program helps to provide lasting memories of summer fun to disadvantaged children and/or children with disabilities by providing tickets to the organizations directly serving them. Since 1992, the Kennywood family of parks in Western Pennsylvania - Kennywood, Idlewild & SoakZone, and Sandcastle - have donated nearly 300,000 days of fun. Applications for Tickets for Children's Charities are received all year long and reviewed in the order in which they are received. Awards and distributions are made after the first of each year, awarding tickets to be used that same year. (Tickets for the 2018 season have already been distributed. Applications received now will be considered after Jan 1, 2019 for tickets in the 2019 season.) There are two categories of tickets: one benefiting individual children, and the other benefiting an organization that directly supports children. A rotating committee from each park administers the program. Details to apply for consideration for the 2019 season will be listed soon. Please check back.
