Tomorrow Washington D.C.-based charity 501Seats will be launching its campaign at Hightopps Backstage Grille (one of Baltimore's Best!) 501Seats is an organization that sells unused event tickets (concerts, sports games) in online auctions and donates the proceeds to charitable causes. They turn all those empty seats at concert venues into something positive. It's a pretty genius idea actually.
They'll be celebrating their kick-off in Baltimore tomorrow with an all-day, concert-style celebration at Hightopps. The event starts at 2 p.m. and will feature three bands, Damn Right!, The Lombards, and John Mancini Band. There will be food and drink specials, including $2 pints and $5.01 mint juleps to celebrate the Kentucky Derby.
The tickets start at, of course, $5.01 and can be purchased at 501Seats.com. One-hundred percent of ticket proceeds will support CKC United, which is a local-based music charity working to raise money for the fight against breast cancer.
I'm not sure what could be better than a beautiful day, awesome music, and discounted drinks—all for a great cause.
