    Disney’s ''Pirates'' World Premiere Sells Out in 14 Days

    http://www.sohood.com/1/content/view/1824/69/


    The $3 million goal – in celebration of the third Pirates adventure – was set forth just two weeks ago. Disney started things with a donation of more than $1 million. Ticket buyers from countries such as Australia, Japan, Germany, Belgium, Canada and Mexico, and 35 U.S. states including Hawaii raced to log on to www.piratespremiere.com and purchased tickets to the event at $1,500 apiece. Ticket buyers making the trip to Anaheim next month for the event include a family from Chicago, where the father is having his kids volunteer at a children’s hospital so they can fully appreciate their tickets. A doctor from Canada is sending her mother as a thank you for working multiple jobs to put her through medical school. A soldier currently serving in Iraq is sending his parents from Oregon to let them know he loves and misses them.


    Commenting on the announcement, Dick Cook, Chairman, The Walt Disney Studios, said, "Disney is dedicated to making dreams come true, and now we're joined by 'Pirates' fans from all over the world who are making a difference through their generous support and participation in this event. The Studio is extremely excited about 'Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End,' and we are looking forward to a spectacular premiere to give the movie the send-off it deserves, while also touching the lives of so many children and their families.”

    Well that's good. I'm glad that the money goes to a worthwhile cause instead of Disney pocketing it themselves.

    Those are very nice stories. While I am jealous, I am thankful that those who got to go are well deserving.

    I am surprised it took that long to sell all the tickets. I expected them to be gone in a matter of hours.

    Make A Wish is a wonderful organization. I'm very happy to see this donation thinking of all the children that will benefit. That's pure Disney!
