For theCHIVE Maryland, a local chapter of "the world famous website TheChive.com", bringing its members together isn't an occasion to just hang out and lie around; it's a perfect opportunity to combine meeting new people, having fun and supporting local and national charities.

chive1"Our members are very passionate about the causes," explained chapter founder Zack Rexine, "and what better way to support them than by also meeting new friends and having a great time?"

Founded in 2013, Rexine and his administrators host parties and events year-round for their members, known as "Chivers", and the proceeds from the events go to various charitable causes across the country.

"Our favorite part of theCHIVE Maryland is easily the charitable causes we have supported...I’ve met so many amazing people through this group and our events.  Many of them are so close now I consider them family!"

For their "New Year's Eve Chive Meetup", Rexine and his team chose Ticketbud to help them seamlessly sell tickets online without taking precious revenue away from their donation efforts.

"We wanted to keep expenses and out of pocket costs to the bare minimum so that we can donate more to charity," Rexine recalled, "and Ticketbud’s low fees allowed us to do that."

"We had over 1200 people attend and raised $30,000 for Chive Charities," the official non-profit of theCHIVE and it's online community. "The website was easy to use and it integrated well with the mobile app.  The ease of use was a key element."
