Polar Express 2015 Ticket Information

The VCTF Polar Express- December 12th& 13th, 2015.

VCTF’s Polar Express is our largest fundraising event of the year. The money we raise through sponsorships and ticket revenue helps to fund important children’s programs throughout Vermont. We think the cause it supports – the well-being of Vermont Kids! – contributes to its popularity. We anticipate another sell-out this year. In order to guarantee tickets at this point, you can sponsor the event as a Bell Ringer, or sign up to volunteer.

Sponsors and Donors may purchase tickets through October 9thVolunteers may register and purchase tickets. We have a limited number of volunteer tickets available first come, first served.

You may become a 2015 Bell Ringer sponsor and purchase tickets. Donate a minimum of $150 and we'll list your family name in our songbook and send you a link to purchase up to 5 tickets.

In the event we have tickets left to sell in October, names will be drawn randomly from our waiting list.  We ask that families join our waiting list only once.  Please do not enter multiple email addresses on our waiting list.  If selected you will be sent an email link that EXPIRES within 24 hours.  Be certain to use an email that you check frequently and remember to add polarexpress@vtchildrenstrust.org to your safe senders list!

Thank you for supporting Vermont children and families!
