The band’s Vitalogy Foundation donated $1 from each ticket sold to four non-profit charities in Massachusetts and a quarter of the take when to Songbird Sings Veterans Voices, a charity that works with veterans who suffer from trauma, addiction, and post traumatic stress.”

“PJ broke attendance records at the Boston Red Sox stadium, selling 72,722 tickets over the two- night stand. That created donations of $18,180.50 for each of the four non-profits. Veterans Voices will also received additional support from the Foundation To Be Named Later (FTBNL), a charitable fund created by Paul Epstein, a Boston-area social worker, and his twin brother, former Boston Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein (a/k/a the man who ended. the Curse of the Bambino). Paul’s still in Boston, but Theo is bringing the magic to Chicago now as the Cubs president of baseball operations.”
