Mission

It is the mission of Share My Seats to provide elite seating combined with an unforgettable experience to individuals and their families associated with non-profit organizations by sharing unused tickets.

Story

The members of Share My Seats, Inc. all came together for one common goal. After noticing an overwhelming trend of vacant seats at events, we came up with a solution to fill those seats through philanthropy. With established coordinators at various non-profit organizations, we realized our solution would benefit both the individuals associated with our partner organizations as well as our generous donors.

The people that make Share My Seats happen

Dallas Cowan Founder

Zane Belden Co-Founder & Financial Manager

Peter Tokatlian Business Operations Manager

Eric Walowitz Lead Representative

Dallas Cowan grew up in the beautiful mountainside town of Tehachapi, California, where he attended multiple prestigious universities, before completing his Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration at Arizona Christian University. When he wasn’t playing baseball, Dallas was actively participating in numerous philanthropic missions across South America. These missions included building homes in the underdeveloped areas of Mexico and Haiti and help opening of a school in the rural mountains of Guatemala. In 2013, Dallas was invited to serve on the Board of Directors for Epi Hab, a local non-profit that helps find employment for individuals with epilepsy and other disabilities. In his professional life, Dallas help launch Aviratek Biomedical Solutions as a sales & marketing consultant, and as a marketing director at Source Direct Imports. Currently Dallas is a business development representative at Maethon Lending here in Phoenix, Arizona.

While attending a Diamondbacks game with his wife Elle in 2012, Dallas was frustrated to see so many empty premier seats around him. The inspiration to fill those empty VIP seats with deserving individuals is the foundation Share My Seats was built on.

When Dallas is not working, he can be found spending time with his family and playing golf.
