Win tickets to ‘Ballet Stars of San Francisco’


You might not expect one of the year’s most impressive dance performances to be staged in August, but that’s exactly what’s happening 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Saroyan Theatre. The Lively Arts Foundation is bringing eight world-class dancers from the San Francisco Ballet to town. The company is considered one of the three top in the country, which means we’ll get the chance to experience some amazing talent on stage.

We’re devoting the cover story in Friday’s 7 section to the event, and you’ll get to read all about each of the eight impressive dancers. Tickets to this show run from $30-$78.

So here’s the contest: I have two pairs of prime orchestra seats (rows N and O) to give away to two lucky Beehive winners. This is a quickie contest: I’ll give the tickets away to the SECOND and EIGHTH commenters on this post.

These are paper tickets, so you’ll have to be able to pick them up at The Bee’s front counter between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Friday.

The winner will be notified by email, so keep checking. If I don’t hear from you within half an hour after I send a winning-confirmation e-mail, I’ll pick someone else at random. No repeat comments please. You’re ineligible if you’ve won something in the past 30 days. We won’t post any comments until we have a winner. Complete rules after the jump.

Only readers who submit a comment on this post are eligible. The second and eighth readers to comment on this post receive the prize. To be eligible, a commenter must not have won a prize on in the previous 30 days. Recipients will be notified by e-mail at the end of each giveaway period. No substitutions or transfer of winners/prizes. Prizes are not redeemable for cash. Some prizes may have due dates for redemption/use. Employees and immediate family of The Fresno Bee, and any/all of the participating giveaway sponsors, are not eligible to win. By accepting a giveaway, recipient consents to allow the use of his/her name and/or photograph for advertising or similar promotions without further compensation. Winner releases all sponsors of liability regarding use and enjoyment of the prizes. Tax liabilities and insurance, if any, are sole responsibility of the winner. No purchase necessary to win.
