“All of us, at some time or other, need help,” said Fred Rogers. “Whether we’re giving or receiving a sweater, each one of us has something valuable to bring to this world. That’s one of the things that connects us as neighbors—in our way, everyone is a giver and receiver.”
IMPORTANT EVENT UPDATE:
We’ve experienced an exceptionally high level of interest in KCTS 9’s launch party for the Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood Sweater Drive, featuring special guest Daniel Tiger! We’re happy to announce that we have extended the time Daniel Tiger will be available from 11:30am to 3pm.
Beginning at 11am on Monday morning we will be distributing tickets to the event on a first-come, first-served basis until we reach capacity. There will be a ticket line at the entrance of the KCTS 9 station (corner of 4th and Mercer).
Please be respectful to our staff and volunteers setting up for the event and plan on arriving no earlier than 10am so we can ensure we have all procedures in place. The tickets will have an entrance time, secure your admission to the event and ensure that you will be able to meet Daniel Tiger. Limit one ticket per family/group.
Please note: Eventbrite tickets/RSVP’s do not act as a ticket and will not get you into the event. We apologize for any confusion.
We are delighted that so many children want to meet Daniel Tiger and donate a sweater to help their neighbors! Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to accommodate as many guests as we can.
RSVP does not guarantee entrance or act as a ticket, and event is first come, first serve while supplies last.
