Get One Direction Tickets In YJI 'Fun-raiser'

WEST HARTFORD, Connecticut – Fans of One
Direction who missed the chance to score tickets to see the wildly popular
British boy band at Mohegan Sun this fall have another opportunity.

Youth Journalism
International, a Connecticut-based, educational non-profit organization, has a
limited number of tickets available to the public for the band’s sold-out
performance on November 30.
“Thanks to the generosity of the Mohegan
Tribe and its respect for press freedom, we have tickets for this terrific
show,” said Jackie Majerus, executive director of Youth Journalism
International.  “All proceeds will support our programs serving young
journalists around the world.”
This month, the five-member band won Best New
Artist and Best Pop Video in the MTV Video Music Awards for their smash hit
“What Makes You Beautiful,” a single from their first album, “Up All Night.”
“Up All Night” made history when it topped
the U.S. Billboard 200 chart on its March debut.
Their new album, “Take Me Home,” containing
the single “Live While We’re Young,” is due out just days before the concert.
“We’re thrilled
to be able to offer comfortable skybox tickets to the hottest show going,” said
Steve Collins, YJI board president. “The help of the Mohegan Tribe makes it
possible for One Direction fans to not only see the show, but support YJI’s
mission to use journalism to bring young people with different countries,
cultures and customs together.”
Tickets are available for a $500 donation to
Youth Journalism International, a 501 (c)(3) public charity. Most of the
donation would be tax-deductible.
Because there are a limited number available,
tickets through this fundraiser are on a first-come, first-served basis.

International at (860) 523-9632 or by email at
Based in West Hartford, Youth Journalism
International began training young writers, artists and photographers in 1994.
