WHITE PLAINS, NY -- Live from the ring of the Royal Hanneford Circus, County Executive Robert P. Astorino will announce a special circus ticket giveaway for more than 100 foster parents and kids thanks to a generous donation from Titan, the U.S. leader in transit media and a longtime partner of Westchester County through advertising partnerships with the Bee-Line buses and the county airport. The media event will take place 10 a.m. Friday, Feb. 15 at the Westchester County Center, 198 Central Park Ave., White Plains.
Ringmaster Billy Martin, Grandma the Clown and other circus performers will join the event to offer a preview of what’s to come at the 38th Annual Royal Hanneford Circus this weekend at the County Center.
One lucky family will also get to step inside the ring and meet the performers during the media event. Margaret Adamson, of Port Chester, is a single mother of two adopted girls – Faith, age 4; and Journey, age 5. She has been a Westchester County foster parent for over five years, and the girls have thrived under her care.
“The circus and childhood go hand-in-hand, so we are thrilled to offer a great circus experience to our county’s foster kids,” Astorino said. “The circus is a longstanding tradition in Westchester, and it is thanks to our strong corporate partnerships that these families will be able to enjoy the festivities free of charge. I want to thank Titan and the Royal Hanneford Circus for this generous donation.”
The Royal Hanneford Circus will perform nine shows Feb. 16, 17 and 18. Show times are 10 a.m., 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. each day. Tickets are available at the Westchester County Center Box Office, 198 Central Park Avenue, White Plains, or via Ticketmaster. Call the County Center at (914) 995-4050 to purchase tickets today.
“Titan is very pleased to donate these tickets so that Westchester’s foster families can enjoy a great day at the circus,” said Don Allman, president and CEO of Titan. “Titan has had a great history with this county, as well as a longtime partnership with the circus. Contributing to the community continues to be extremely important to us.”
