An unforgettable private concert for just 500 people, featuring Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey and Eddie Vedder, awaits the winner of a new fundraising raffle. The Pearl Jam frontman will reunite with The Who stars for the occasion, following his appearance at celebratory concerts of Who music in London last November and Chicago in May. They also teamed up to donate personalized items for the Teen Cancer America charity campaign earlier this year.
TCA will again be one of the beneficiaries of the new contest, which is hosted by CrowdRise and offers tickets starting at $10 to win the performance at a private residence by the three artists on September 12 in Santa Monica, and two nights’ accommodation at the city’s Fairmont Hotel. The event will serve as a warm-up for the second North American leg of the ‘The Who Hits 50’ tour, which starts on September 14 at the Valley View Casino Centre in San Diego.
Proceeds from the raffle will go to both Teen Cancer America and Foundation to be Named Later, the Boston-based Family Foundation of Paul and Theo Epstein, which aims to improve lives “through education, leadership and the healthy development of youth and families.” FTBNL’s name is a playful nod to the MLB baseball trade term Player To Be Named Later.
Every donation of $10 buys one ticket for the raffle, while $25 buys three and a $50 donation offers seven chances to win. You can take part and find out more information about this worthy cause, and the remarkable prize, here.
