Partnership in support of Music Gives to St. Jude's Kids
On Tuesday, the Goo Goo Dolls announced a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for fans through Omaze, the premier site for online charitable giving. While in the midst of their "Long Way Home" summer tour in support of the release of their new EP, "You Should Be Happy," the band is partnering with Omaze to offer the chance to win the ultimate concert experience.
One winner and their guest will be flown out to Los Angeles and stay in a four-star hotel for the Goo Goo Dolls performance at the Greek Theater on Sept. 13. The experience guarantees premium VIP seats for the show, a private performance during pre-show sound check, a meet-and-greet with the band, and the opportunity to take home John Rzeznik's Taylor 214 CE DLX guitar, which will be used during the show.
Fans can enter for the chance to win for as little as $10 in support of Music Gives to St. Jude Kids, a nonprofit that works to fight against childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Every donation offers fans the chance to have an up-close and personal experience with the rock 'n' roll legends. Not only will a donation get fans one step closer to the band, but funds raised will help support this worthwhile cause and save the lives of thousands of children everyday.
Watch as The Goo Goo Dolls announce this campaign in this video posted on their Facebook page HERE.
The campaign launched on Aug. 1 and will close Aug. 31.

Music Gives to St. Jude Kids mobilizes the music community - artists, fans, corporate partners and sponsors - to join in the fight against childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. It raises funds and awareness for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
St. Jude has a long history of support from the music industry - since the hospital's beginning in 1962 - when its founder, Danny Thomas, called on entertainers such as Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles and more to join his cause. Since then, numerous artists and musicians have visited the hospital in support of the St. Jude mission and Thomas' dream that no child should die in the dawn of life.
Jason Thomas Gordon, Thomas' grandson and lead singer of the band Kingsize, created Music Gives to continue to bring St. Jude and music together, further his family's legacy and make a difference in the lives of the kids of St. Jude.
