Count Me In Ambassador Melissa Northcott joined the program in 2010 is enjoying the full benefits of the card.

The card allows her to go to theatre shows, movies and sports events that would otherwise be prohibitively expensive because she requires someone to accompany her.

“I was missing out on a lot of things because I couldn’t go by myself and buying an extra ticket was so expensive,” she said. “At most venues I have to buy a premium ticket in order to sit close to the front without any stairs which makes it even more expensive.”
