Pearl Jam Fans Host Pre-concert Fundraisers to Celebrate Bands Induction- Into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

BROOKLYN, NY – 03/10/2017 – Wishlist Foundation, a fan-run grassroots nonprofit organization, is hosting pre-concert fundraisers to celebrate the induction of Seattle rock legends Pearl Jam into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 6, 7, and 8 in Brooklyn, NY, to raise money for Pearl Jam designated charities.

Two-time Hall of Fame alumnus and Pearl Jam mentor Neil Young will be inducting the group at the 32nd annual ceremony on April 7 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. The five other inductees include ‘60’s folk songstress Joan Baez, English bands Yes and Electric Light Orchestra (ELO), San Francisco-based classic rock staple Journey and late 1990’s rapper Tupac Shakur. The Award for Musical Excellence will be presented to producer, songwriter and musician Nile Rodgers of the group Chic.

Pearl Jam, one of the most influential bands of the past 25 years both in music and activism, has inspired many in their fan base to action in raising money for some of the most important causes around the world.

I think our fans are very proactive in terms of fundraising for events before our shows. Wishlist Foundation…a really cool organization…organizes pre-concert events to raise money for nonprofits supported by our band. They do it of their own volition and they take care of each other and their communities. It always blows me away,

states Mike McCready, lead guitarist of Pearl Jam.

Since its inception in 2004, the fan-run Wishlist Foundation has raised over one million dollars for charitable organizations in the arenas of health and chronic illness, environmental causes, arts and education and social change. A pioneer in fan-based viral activism and leader in the Pearl Jam fan community, Wishlist Foundation sponsored events have become the go-to destination for thousands of fans all across the globe to gather before Pearl Jam and other related concerts, forge new friendships, all while uniting behind causes important to both the fans and band.

Attendees of the fan-run Wishlist fundraisers can donate to receive t-shirts, buttons and accessories. Fans can also enter a raffle at these events for a chance to win fan-donated band collectibles. Silent and live auctions will feature donated autographed Pearl Jam posters and other rare memorabilia. All proceeds from the raffles and auctions will benefit Pearl Jam’s designated charities.
