If you’re looking for an escape from Thanksgiving food coma or the shopping cart wars of Black Friday, be sure to participate in Sofar Sounds and Movember Foundation’s concert ticket giveaway.
The event will feature performances by soulful rock duo Smoke Season, the sly lyricism of hip-hop powerhouse GAVLYN, and the ethereal strings of indie rockers Geographer. All of the proceeds will go towards funding men’s health programs.
“It’s going to be a special night with the artists, the Sofar audience and the Movember community coming together and supporting a great cause,” Sara Mengesha, project manager for the show, told Music for Good.
“It felt natural to partner up with the Movember Foundation because, like Sofar, it’s a passionate global community connecting and building a movement.”
To be entered for a chance to win tickets to the concert, head over to Sofar Sounds’ event page and make a $5 donation, with all proceeds benefitting Movember Foundation. Be sure to share the event on your social networks to increase your chances of winning.
Since its inception in 2009, Sofar Sounds has hosted more than 4,500 intimate gigs spanning more than 270 cities around the world. From Los Angeles to Kolkata, the secret shows play host to up-and-coming artists as well as renowned guests including Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O and Bastille.
The Movember Foundation provides funding and raises awareness for key areas in men’s health including prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. It also encourages men to grow their mustaches during the month of November to help spread the word and start conversations around men’s health.
It seems fitting that the show will take place on Giving Tuesday, a worldwide movement to encourage individuals to give to their favorite charities and participate in small acts of kindness to create lasting impact among local communities.
