Who are tickets so expensive? I understand that all proceeds benefit KLRU. That said, why must the event be such that only the relatively wealthy of our community will have the means to attend?

It is true that Spark is meant to be a fundraiser for KLRU, but it has really only broken even for us in the past. Putting on a speaker series is expensive. From speaker fees, to venue costs, to staff time, it takes a lot to put these events on. We realize that the cost of the tickets can be prohibitive for some, so we do make day of tickets available at half price so that those who can't afford the price can still attend.

Did you mean that the "day of the performance" tickets are sold for half price? Thanks.
