To Get Free Circus Ticket
Plus Join Ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson 
For Fun-Filled Dragon Egg Hunt
at the EnergySolutions Arena on Tuesday, August 14th

Strength, Wisdom, Courage and Heart are the four traits used to summon the dragon in the show and
these same characteristics couldn’t be more descriptive of Eliza Williams, a local Utah girl who suffers
from MLD (Metachromatic Leukodystrophy). Eliza’s family started “Eliza’s Wish” which not only rasies
awareness about her disease, but also collects and donates books for “Eliza’s Library” which provides
books to doctors’ offices and children’s hospitals all over Utah.

As a special charity promotion, Salt Lake residents are encouraged to bring a new or gently used
children’s book to donate to “Eliza’s Library” on the morning of August 14th at the EnergySolutions
Arena to receive a FREE TICKET* to Ringling Bros. presents DRAGONS.

*Limit 2 tickets per family, available on a first-come first-serve basis, subject to availability to first 100
families in attendance

Plus, the first 300 young circus fans (ages 2-12) in attendance will get to participate in a special Dragon
Egg Hunt where each child will get access to the specially designed “Dragon Cave” inside the
EnergySolutions Arena to hunt for one rare golden dragon egg that can be redeemed for a variety of cool
prizes. Ringling Bros. Circus Ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson will also make an advance visit to
Salt Lake to meet with kids and take them deep into the dragon’s cave to help them hunt for the elusive
dragon eggs.

The Williams Family will be on-hand to speak about “Eliza’s Wish” book drive and will also be available
for media interviews, along with the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus Ringmaster Johnathan
Lee Iverson.
