A "Circus Daddy" or "Circus Dad" is somebody who sponsors disadvantaged or handicapped children's fees in order that they could attend a Shriners Circus. Shriner Circuses exist throughout the United States and the proceeds from these events benefit Shriner's Children's Hospitals. The way the Circus Daddy program works is that an individual buys a ticket booklet and then donates the tickets to a Shriners business office. The office then provides free admission for a select number of children in order that they could attend a specific Shriners Circus.
