'The Hunger Games: The Exhibition' Opens at Frazier History Museum
The Frazier History Museum today announced a series of Louisville-based partnerships for The Hunger Games: The Exhibition, which opens this weekend in Louisville, KY. One key partnership is a ticket sales fundraising campaign benefitting the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation, which will receive a portion of all full-priced tickets sold during the Louisville engagement. The campaign follows the recent Norton Healthcare announcement of the upcoming $78M Jennifer Lawrence Foundation Cardiac Intensive Care Unit, a tangible demonstration of the ongoing charitable work the foundation is doing in Louisville.
In addition to the ticket sales fundraiser, the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation is partnering with exhibition organizers on a series of fundraising events to be hosted at The Frazier throughout the course of the exhibition run. Details will be announced at a later date.
"By partnering with The Jennifer Lawrence Foundation we have ensured that the visitors who come to the Frazier to experience this incredible exhibition will not be the only ones to benefit from its run in Louisville," said Frazier President, Penny Peavler. "It is our mission to ignite the human spirit with stories that matter to this community and we are ecstatic to be living in that mission alongside such exceptional partners."
In addition to the partnership with The Jennifer Lawrence Foundation, The Frazier Museum has generated multiple local partnerships in support of the exhibition including:
- Hotel & Travel Packages: Key hotel partners will be offering room night packages that include exhibition tickets and other hotel stay benefits at varying price points to provide cost effective and unique ways to see the exhibition and stay overnight in Louisville.
- Panem Citizens Card: Over 30 local businesses spanning multiple categories in retail, entertainment, dining, and attractions have partnered with the museum on a Panem Citizens Card campaign. Every guest who purchases a ticket will receive the savings card which provides discounts and benefits at area participating businesses.
- Tourism Partnerships: The Convention and Visitors Bureau as well as the Kentucky State Tourism board will be supporting regional visitation to the exhibition further driving tourism revenue to Louisville during the six-month exhibition run.

A discounted four pack of tickets for both families and individuals is available starting at $90. Contact the Frazier History Museum directly for student and group discounts.
