A Special Block of Tickets for Alanis Morissette at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury will go to the Support of Long Island Cares, Inc.
Westbury, NY - June 11, 2014 - Alanis Morissette doesn't tour often, but when the singer, songwriter, guitarist, record producer and actress who, has won seven Grammy Awards does tour - it's a big deal. Her first album, Jagged Little Pill sold over 33 million copies since its release in 1995 and featured critically acclaimed singles including "You Learn," "Ironic" and "You Oughta Know." Alanis has sold more than 60 million copies of her recordings worldwide.
Now, Long Island Cares, Inc. has a special block of 20 tickets to see Alanis Morissette in a special and rare Intimate and Acoustic Concert in the half-round at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury for one night only on Saturday, July 26, 2014 at 8:00 PM. Like all of the concerts at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury, all of the seats are great, and July 26 will be no different for a special evening with Alanis Morissette. In addition to your tickets you have an opportunity to meet many of Long Island Cares' donors and friends, and support the work of Long Island's regional food bank. Our special block of tickets are $110.00 each and a portion of the ticket sales will support the Long Island Cares' Endowment Fund.
