JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - An upcoming Sarah Palin event is being moved to a smaller venue because of slow ticket sales.

The "Evening of Hope with Sarah Palin," scheduled for next Thursday in Jacksonville, has been moved from the 2,936-seat Moran Theatre to the 609-seat Terry Theatre.

Mark Nelson, Florida director for Heroic Media, said the event was moved because not enough tickets have been sold and organizers would rather have a packed theater.

The event is a fundraiser for Heroic Media, a faith-based nonprofit group aimed at reducing abortions.

Tickets range from $50 to $100.
