CHARITY AUCTION SERIES TO BENEFIT
CAMP GOOD DAYS & SPECIAL TIMES
Charity Auction Series to Begin May 5th
Syracuse, NY - An Ebay auction beginning on Monday, May 5th will kick off the second wave of the Dream Theater Charity Auction Series to benefit Camp Good Days and Special Times. Camp Good Days is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for children, adults and families whose lives have been touched by cancer and other life threatening challenges. For 29 years, Camp Good Days has been providing free residential camping programs at their Recreational Facility in Branchport, New York as well as year-round support activities. Such an accomplishment would never be possible without friends like Dream Theater and events like this charity auction.
Since August 2007, Dream Theater has been donating band-related memorabilia to Camp Good Days in an effort to raise funds and awareness for Camp via a series of Ebay auctions. The Dream Theater Charity Auction Series generally runs in conjunction with the band's tour dates and so will begin May 5th, as the band reconvenes it's "Chaos in Motion" Tour.
The items being auctioned in the coming weeks will include (but not be limited to) an autographed copy of Dream Theater's newest CD, "Greatest Hit (and 21 other pretty cool songs)", compliments of Rhino Records and a band- and author-autographed copy of Rich Wilson's Dream Theater biography, "Lifting Shadows". Perhaps the pinnacle of the auction series will be a "Music Man" John Petrucci-model guitar, which Ernie Ball has generously built and donated for this cause. Autographed tour shirts and tour books will be auctioned intermittently as well; hopefully creating different price levels for potential bidders.
