In support of the nonprofit organization, Blue Man Group encouraged locals to bring nonperishable food items to the Blue Man Group Theatre inside The Venetian in exchange for one complimentary ticket to the show and a 15 percent off coupon to the retail store. Patrons donated a variety of items including cereal boxes, fruit cups, granola and breakfast bars, crackers, cookie packs, juice packs, sunflower seed packets, canned fruit, trail mix, raisins and more. Over 6,230 pounds of food was collected during the four hour food drive which is the equivalent to 4,872 meals. The food will benefit children from low income homes, who are unable to take advantage of school lunch programs due to summer break.
