Bankrupt TicketRoar leaves thousands of school districts wondering where their money is

Many questions remain after Cleveland ticket company goes bankrupt

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Hundreds of Ohio school districts are still unsure if they will get money due to them. We told you Friday about a Cleveland-based company called TicketRoar, which many school districts utilized, has filed for bankruptcy.

The digital ticketing company was used by thousands of districts across the country, including several in Northeast Ohio.

St. Ignatius and Parma are on the list. So far, neither knows how much money they may have lost. Solon has lost thousands of dollars.

“It just seems like they get their money and they kinda disappear and then the children, the schools the parents, they’re the one left out with nothing to show for the money they’ve raised, that they’ve earned,” said an Aurora High School mother.

Outside of trying to contact TicketRoar, the Solon school district has filed a police report. That’s an important step if they are ever to recover their losses.

Cleveland Metropolitan School District was told by its law department to cut ties with TicketRoar a couple of years ago. So, no known losses at this time.
