Dr. I.L. Balkcom planned to take his wife, Deborah, and two guests to see Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons at the Winspear Opera House Friday, Sept. 28.
As fate would have it, however, Dr. Balkcom is on call that weekend and cannot leave town, so the couple had a dilemma: What to do with the seats?
“We wondered if you could help us find a home for these tickets,” Deborah said when she dropped by the News-Telegram office last week.
Since Deborah has a soft spot for God’s furry creatures, it was decided to auction the four tickets (face value of $332) to the highest bidder with all proceeds to be donated to Hearts of Life, an animal rescue organization.
The seats are on the floor of the theater, in the Orchestra Terrace, to the right (dark green section in the diagram below).
So here’s your chance to have an evening in the city and do something to benefit abused and neglected animals at the same time.
An act of kindness like the Balkcoms’ reaffirms there is goodness in today’s crazy world.
Deadline for bid submissions is 11:59 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 26. The winner will be contacted Thursday. Tickets are to be picked up at the News-Telegram office.
