Press Release:

The T.J. Martell Foundation, in conjunction with The 2006 Vans Warped Tour, is proud to announce the Third Annual Charity Ticket Auction for Leukemia, Cancer and Aids Research. Beginning April 17th, and running for five consecutive weeks, fans can bid on eBay for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to receive two tickets to “America’s most successful festival” (Rolling Stone, June 30, 2005), and premiere punk rock concert: the 12th Annual Vans Warped Tour, presented by Cingular Wireless. In addition, the top bidder and their guest will watch their favorite band perform from the best seats in the house: ON STAGE!

The all-day outdoor festivals, drawing as many as 15,000 to 35,000 fans per event, will make stops in 49 US and Canadian cities, coast-to-coast, beginning on June 15th, 2006, in Columbia, Maryland, concluding August 13, 2006 in Montreal, Quebec. Each festival date features over 40 cutting-edge musical artists performing on five stages, as well as other attractions including top athletes in the action sports world, skateboard ramps and demonstrations, informational tents, autograph signings, giveaways and lifestyle events. Projected to be the largest in it’s history, the 2006 Vans Warped Tour will feature leading punk and hard rock bands, including AFI, Buzzcocks, Helmet, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Less Than Jake, the Living End, NOFX, and others.

All proceeds generated from the eBay ticket sale auction for the Cincinnati, Ohio Warped Tour date will be donated to Bradley Andress, bassist of the up-and-coming Cincinnati-based rock band Close To Home who, at only 20-years old, was diagnosed in February 2006 with life-threatening lung cancer. Warped Tour attendees can learn more about how they can contribute to ‘Brad’s Fight for Cancer Fund’ at the ‘Take Action’ tent, which showcases 8-10 non-profits per city.

The T. J Martell Foundation, founded in 1975 by Columbia/Sony music industry executive Tony Martell in memory of his son, T.J., a victim of leukemia, has since raised more than $200 million over 30-years to combat the world’s three most deadliest diseases. The T.J. Martell Foundation remains dedicated to raising funds for the innovative initial and ongoing research into the treatments and cures of leukemia, cancer, and AIDS at the leading eight research facilities throughout the United States.

All proceeds from the Vans Warped Tour ticket auctions will benefit the life saving research conducted at The Mayo Clinic, Memorial Sloan-Kettering, Childrens Hospital Los Angeles, and others. In 2005, The T. J. Martell Foundation’s Vans Warped Tour Ticket Auctions generated $11,000.00 in funding.

Vans Warped Tour Ticket Auctions will begin on April 17, 2006, when ten pairs of tickets with accompanying stage access passes for the first ten tour dates will be posted to eBay as Seven-Day, No Reserve Auctions. Ten additional pairs of tickets with stage passes, for each additional ten tour dates will again be posted to eBay on April 24, May 1, May 8, and May 15, 2006. Those individuals interested in bidding on these very special experience tickets and stage passes can access all of the T. J. Martell Foundation eBay auctions by clicking on the “T.J. Martell Auctions on eBay” link found at www.tjmartellfoundation.org
