Ticket Donation Requests

Thank you for your interest in including The Public Theatre of Kentucky in the silent auction portion of your charitable event.


The Public Theatre of Kentucky receives many requests for charitable auction donations each year. We are happy to support worthy causes but do ask for two things from organizations in return, if possible.

  1. Have someone from your organization volunteer as an usher during one of our shows. By being involved in the arts, one can really appreciate what it takes to make live theatre happen. You may call the Office at 270.781.6233 or contact us via email at ptkybg@gmail.com to schedule a time to usher.
  2. Write to one of our government funding sources to let them know how important arts funding is to your organization and/or to your community. By thanking them for funding the arts. you help assure that it keeps on happening! For a sample letter and commissioner contact information, scroll to the bottom of the page. When you have completed the letter, please send a copy with your reuqest for our files.


No phone calls, please. Mail or email a written request at least a few weeks in advance to:

Dear Mrs. Hill:

I am writing as a supporter of community arts funding. I understand and welcome the Warren County Board of Commissioners' unwavering support of community arts organizations in Kentucky. Your support is crucial and will facilitate the success and continued growth of Kentucky's arts organizations.

As an employee of a non-profit organization, we depend on the kindness of citizens and businesses of our community to thelp fund our programs. Most often, our fundraising events include silent auctions and we solicit throughout the community for auction items. We have received enormous amount of ticks from the arts community, including The Public Theatre of Kentucky. Their commitment to building stronger partnerships within Bowling Green is to be applauded.

Please continue to support the arts in Bowling Green and South Central Kentucky. Without them, we are all affected.
