Widespread Panic Announces Tunes for Tots 2008


Over the past three years, Tunes for Tots has raised over $375,000 for Georgia Public School music programs. With the proceeds from 2007’s event, Rothschild Middle School not only received instruments for their orchestra but also a 27 station music computer lab with the latest version of Music Maker Finale on them. Musical instrument equipment is very expensive and many more schools are under-funded and in need, so we invite you to join Widespread Panic for their 2008 Tunes for Tots charity concert!

This year’s event is taking place at the newly renovated Tabernacle in Atlanta, GA on October 19. Only 100 VIP tickets will be sold for The Private VIP Cocktail Party with Widespread Panic and includes: Heavy hors d’oeuvres catered by the renowned chef Hugh Acheson from Athens’ 5 & 10 restaurant, an open premium bar, early admittance into the venue and a 2008 Tunes for Tots poster autographed by the band. The cocktail party will take place from 5 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.

For the concert only, General Admission tickets will be available with doors at 7 p.m. with Showtime at 8 p.m.

Tickets go on sale September 20 through Ticketmaster.com – online only.

Widespread Panic believes that art education, and in particular music education, is integral to the overall education and advancement of children. Art allows for personal expression, appreciation of ideas, celebration of cultural awareness, sharing emotions, and gives purpose to life. Widespread Panic agrees with research findings that art education supports more traditional academic subjects as well as being a worthy pursuit in its own right.
