Tickets just went on sale for Charlottesville’s second TEDx talk. Volunteers were out on Charlottesville's downtown mall Friday morning letting people know by chalking the free speech wall.

TED stands for technology, entertainment, and design - and volunteers say this year's series will feature even more speakers from those fields.

Organizers say all the money that isn't used for the show will go to a good cause.

"It's all community- and volunteer-led, so there's no profit at the end of the day. If there is any profit, we'll roll it into ongoing expenses for future TED, we may try to do some outreach programs in the community, and then we partner with the Paramount too so that money can be going to the Paramount,” said Ann Kingston, TEDx volunteer.

They already have about 12 speakers lined up, with three coming from Charlottesville and the University of Virginia.

The show opens at the Paramount Theater on November 14. For tickets, click here.
