This auction is sponsored by Republic Records and the monies raised will go to Newtown with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the "Sandy Hook School Support Fund" set up through Newtown Savings Bank/ United Way of Western Connecticut. United Way of Western Connecticut has waived their fees so all the money will go directly to Newtown. Funds will provide support services to the families and community that have been affected.
When I saw them in 2009, Travis gave out a drum head, Mark gave out a bass, and Tom gave out a guitar. Not for charity or anything, they just handed them out to random people in the crowd. It was crazy.
