T.Cares Spreads Its Wings

A “let’s dream big!” kind of idea, born in a small conference room, has evolved into a multi-organizational effort that has taken off like wildfire. From working with Major League Baseball Teams to popular venues, together we’re investing in our communities while striving to become a model of possibility. Whether it’s raising money for cancer research by cycling from London to Amsterdam, participating in events hosted by the Disabled Surfers Association of Australia, or auctioning tickets to a sporting event that benefits a local school in the US, we as a company, and as a family, are dedicated to making impacts to communities around the world.

Our most recent initiative for T.Cares transpired while chatting about how we can utilize our position in the ticketing industry to give back. The concept of “No Ticket Wasted” was created. How often do seats go unused at an event that others would give the world to go to? We wanted to create extraordinary experiences for  families and individuals facing various challenges in life but wanted to do more than just give them a ticket to the event. Ideas were flowing on how we could take this idea from a concept to reality and begin to change the world one experience at a time.

Our relationships with venues has given us the unique ability to create a once in a lifetime experience that goes beyond the ticket. This program has allowed individuals and their families to go onto baseball fields to meet their heroes, has given them VIP treatment and exclusive behind-the-scenes access to top tier artists,  all while making sure we together create an experience they would never forget.

Within a few months of the launch of our program T.Cares, and in collaboration with our clients, we have been able to partner with a number of worldwide charitable organizations to create incredible experiences for individuals around the globe. Some of the incredible organizations are Shriners Childrens Hospitals, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America and the Special Olympics.

Client Upgrades, Renewals, & More!

We have been very busy over the past few months renewing client contracts and upgrading some of our partners to our latest and greatest features.

The University of Vermont is migrating from ProVenueMax to ProVenue for their Athletics and Arts ticketing. They chose to upgrade to ProVenue because of its powerful features and functionality that empower their students and fans, and increase box office efficiencies.

UVM will implement online student ticketing via ProVenueOnline and MyTickets.

This will allow students to bypass the box office and to get a free student comp ticket online. Only UVM students will have access to the student tickets as the link will sit behind a UVM credentialed website. The link will also be masked to prohibit students from sharing the link with non-students. Rules and ticket quotas will be established barring students from accessing more than one (1) free ticket per event. Tickets will be delivered through our Tickets@Home and Apple Passbook.

Syracuse University Schine Box Office, Northwest Florida State College Mattie Kelly Arts Center, College of DuPage McAninch Arts Center, and Alabama Theatre have also chosen to upgrade from ProVenueElite to ProVenue. Advanced features such mobile tools, Ticket Forwarding, MyProVenue and marketing services will be utilized across these amazing venues in the near future!

Jeff Baldino, Senior Director of Competition, and I did not share any details of the day and we were very excited to see their faces as the day unfolded. The smiles started immediately as we entered the field. Rich said he never thought he would be on a big league field and Moose repeatedly claimed it was one of the best days of his life!

SpecialOlympics_NJ-6 SpecialOlympics_NJ-5  SpecialOlympics_NJ-4

What makes the Special Olympics NJ Organization such an amazing T.Cares Partner is their dedication to providing year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.

Specifically, “The Special Olympics Baseball program has developed an incredible heart and soul for players and coaches alike since it began in 2013.  The pure joy and love for the game of baseball and each other has progressed over the past 3 years. This program enables athletes who were never given an opportunity to play baseball in their youth, develop their skills and actually play the game.  The memory I will always have in my heart is watching the team celebrate after winning the gold medal vs. Rhode Island in the 2014 USA Games.  The tears of happiness that we all had as we dogpiled and threw containers of Gatorade on each other (primarily the coaches getting soaked) just like on television!  The bonds that developed between the athletes and the coaches is something I have never experienced in my own professional career.  I would do anything to help and guide these incredible people not only in baseball, but also in their lives,” said Tony Vlahovic.SpecialOlympics_NJ-2

As a community we’re grateful for the opportunity to support such an incredible organization and we invite you to join us and get involved!


Help support the Special Olympics Baseball program and Special Olympics in general by taking the time to watch the games and attend practices to sponsoring events. Sponsorship funds are used to support all the sports and activities led by Special Olympics. Lastly, help generate interest and revenue among your friends and colleagues so you can can keep the dreams alive for these athletes to continue to play baseball.

Principles Of Good Web Design

The design and technology team came up with some basic principles of good web design that you can apply to any client-facing items: your website, email campaigns, marketing collateral or even your business cards. We hope you enjoy!

So, What is Good Design?

It is important to remember that good design is not only how something looks, but also how it feels and works as well. If a website looks slick and modern but has a terrible user experience, your design becomes unusable. No matter what you’re building, it’s important to keep the user in mind. It’s easy to fall into the trap of adding something into your design because it “looks cool”, but if it serves no purpose then it should be removed.

Basic Principles of Good Design

Colors and Fonts

Good design should keep your brand consistent. Stick to colors and fonts that make sense for YOUR brand and your organization. Typically, do not use more than two fonts on each item you are designing. To mix things up a bit, feel free to use different weights and styles of the same font.


Decide if you want to use a sans-serif or serif font as your main text. Sans-serif presents a more modern feel and is easier to read in large blocks, while a serif font adds a more elegant and professional feel. There are lots of fonts available online now through WebKit or DaFont that can really liven up your designs and stray away from the typical Arial or Times New Roman that everyone uses.

Use colors that complement your brand and your logo. Understand that different colors evoke different emotions and reactions.


White Space and Layout

As tempting as it is to cram as much as you can into a PDF or website, white space is really important for any design because it aids in readability and content prioritization. It gives your design visual breathing room and creates a simple and elegant look and feel.


Grid-based designs are also a great way to improve site organization. Grids help establish where elements of your site should be placed within your layout. The rule of thirds also helps with placement. The rule of thirds is a guideline that proposes all the important information and design elements be placed along the lines of intersection when a photo or design is split into thirds. Using a grid and/or the rule of thirds can help you organize your content to create the most aesthetically appealing design.


Be sure to keep all the important information on the top left as people usually read in an F-pattern. Keep text blocks short and the use of bullet points are key.


Load Time and Responsive Designs

We live in a mobile world and our websites and designs should reflect this. Websites should be responsive across all devices whether it’s your desktop, tablet or cell phone.

Optimize your photos and PDFs so that they load and download quickly. Downsizing your large PDF’s are easy with a variety of tools online. Smallpdf is a site that provides a free and intuitive tool that can compress your PDF, making it easy and quick to send those files online.

We’re Here to Help

Whether you need an email blast sent out to your clients, a brand new venue map, a facelift or total redesign of your site, we are here to help. Contact for any design needs that you may have and we’ll be happy to have you touch base with one of our project managers/designers for more information.
