Atlantans Invited to Give the Gift of Life and Receive the Theatre Experience of a Lifetime

Making its last appearance in the Southeast, the farewell tour of The Phantom of the Opera is set to play at the Fox Theatre June 30-July 18. Before the show arrives, Atlanta-area residents are invited to help the community on June 25 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. by donating blood at the American Red Cross donor center on Monroe Drive. During that time, participating blood donors will receive a complimentary pair of tickets to the show’s farewell engagement at The Fox Theatre. 106.7 Atlanta’s True Oldies will also be on site from 9-11 a.m. for a two-hour remote.
