TO DONATE
If you have official t-shirts, posters, stickers or any other cool Pearl Jam or side project merchandise memorabilia, music/pop culture related items, gift cards, original art or anything else you would like to donate to a preparty fundraiser, donate here! No bootleg items, please. https://tinyurl.com/wldonate

TO VOLUNTEER
We are always in need of Preparty Team volunteers to help run the fundraisers – no experience necessary! It’s a great way to directly meet new Pearl Jam fans and help out worthy organizations. If you’re interested in becoming a volunteer, sign up here! http://tinyurl.com/pjvolunteer

TO ORGANIZE
Anyone who’s organized a preparty fundraiser knows that there’s more than meets the eye when signing on to host an event. Though there is a good amount of work involved, the rewards are huge and almost everyone who has organized one of our events has loved the experience and has/will do it again. If you’ve already volunteered at a preparty fundraiser and want to take the next step and organize a fundraiser, or you’re an organizer alumni, please sign up here! http://tinyurl.com/pjvolunteer

WHAT IS A PREPARTY FUNDRAISER?
A Wishlist Foundation preparty fundraiser is a group of fans gathering before a Pearl Jam concert to meet up and make new friends. We add in the charitable aspect by supporting Pearl Jam’s Spotlight Charities and a local organization selected by the organizer of the preparty. Mix in a massive raffle of Pearl Jam fan memorabilia, an amazing auction of autographed items and some merchandise available for a donation and you’re part of the beautiful movement of fans helping to make the world a better place.

Inspired by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legends’ music, philanthropy and activism, Pearl Jam fans volunteering with Wishlist Foundation have been fundraising in their honor for the past 16 years! The first preparty fundraiser was held on October 5, 2004 at Humphrey’s Bar & Grill in St. Louis prior to the Pearl Jam VFC concert organized by Brent Hinson and Laura Trafton. Due to its success, and the success of the 2005 Canadian preparty fundraisers, Wishlist Foundation was created.

    If anyone is concerned about parking at Fashion Valley Mall... option is parking on lower level at Hazard Center ride one stop to Fashion Valley.  
    You'll be one stop closer on the way home. 
    Just an option

    LOS ANGELES UPDATE - there's been a hiccup with the organizing of the Los Angeles events - but on the bright side, the amazing Jon Marshall Voorhies has stepped up to help at the last minute! 🦸‍♂️

    As a result, Friday's event will be a meet-up only. Jon will be on hand from 4-6PM to collect any raffle and auction items for drop off.

    Wishlist merchandise and limited raffle items will be available at the Saturday, May 7 fundraiser event between 4-6PM.

    Volunteers are desperately needed if you have some free time to spare! Thank you all for your understanding!
