The Community Ticket Program is designed to distribute complimentary tickets to nonprofit organizations in North Dakota serving youth and families that may not otherwise have the resources or opportunity to attend a Bismarck Larks baseball game. This program is funded by the Larks Community FUNd.


The goal of this program is provide qualifying non-profits and community organizations with tickets that they otherwise would not be able to afford and that provide youth, their families, and/or their support group to create a positive life experience together around a sporting event. These tickets are not meant for raffles, fundraising donations, promotional purposes, or for organizations that have revenues and budgets to afford these type of experiences for their members.
