TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – Thanks to the local Arab Shrine organization, area children will get to see a circus next month, for free.
Tuesday morning, Shriners presented the Greater United Way of Topeka with 4,500 tickets.
The tickets are valued at more than $60,000.
The annual Arab Shrine Circus will take place in mid-February and will include the usual array of elephants, tigers and a trapeze act.
The annual ticket giveaway is part of the Shriner’s mission to provide entertainment programs for children.
