Rock Blog: 2 Charities You're Helping At #Pain2016

August 18, 2016

Since you're going to Pain In The Grass 2016 on Sunday, we HAVE to thank you! $2 from every ticket sold is helping local charities through Pearl Jam's Vitalogy Foundation. Together we are raising money for TWO great PNW charities: the Downtown Emergency Service Center(DESC) and the Bureau of Fearless Ideas.

The DESC was established in 1979 as an emergency shelter. Today, the DESC is working to end homelessness for our community's most vulnerable people by offering clinical services and housing.

The Bureau of Fearless Ideas is a nonprofit writing and communication center. The Bureau offers tutoring, writing, and publishing programs for young people, so that they may develop strong comminication skills.  

So, not only is your ticket-purchasing helping fight homelessness, but it is also supporting the education of our youth! Can I get a HELL YEAH?!?! Thanks :) 

 

If you haven't picked up your tickets to #Pain2016 yet, Rockaholics, you still have time, but GET ON IT right here. See you Sunday!
