Ticket to Ride is an annual social mixer and fundraising event hosted by the City of Edmonton Youth Council to help provide as many transportation tickets as possible to the youth of YESS!

“Ticket to Ride” needs your support to bring transit into the hands of youth who are in crisis and experiencing homelessness! Enjoy an evening of live music, socialization, conversation, and philanthropy just blocks from downtown, while also directly supporting Edmonton’s youth community! 100% of ticket sales and donations contribute directly towards purchasing transportation tickets for use by Youth Empowerment and Support Services, enabling the youth they assist to secure transportation for work, family, social supports, or any other trips many take for granted daily.

Last year Ticket to Ride provided YESS with $4000 worth of transportation tickets, but our sights are set much higher this year! With your help we’re confident that as Edmontonians we can truly make a difference in our communities when we come together to put an end to poverty.
