Elvis Costello announces “Elvis Sings Hunter-Garcia,” a benefit for Prader-Willi Homes Of California. The rare, intimate concert, a tribute to the iconic songwriting of Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter and the band’s visionary singer/guitarist Jerry Garcia, will take place the night of Friday, September 30 at The Great American Music Hall. There will be two shows: 7 and 10 pm. Tickets are $100 for general admission, available online at gamh.com/shows-elvis-costello-sings-hunter-garcia/, with special VIP seating available upon email request to [email protected]. All proceeds will benefit Prader-Willi Homes of California, formerly The Richard de Lone Special Housing Project, a nonprofit that helps establish and support residential living for individuals with Prader-Willi syndrome. Doors will open at 6 p.m. for the 7 p.m. show and at 9 p.m. for the 10 p.m. show.
“We are so lucky to have Elvis as a friend and adviser to Prader-Willi Homes of California,” PWHC Executive Director Austin de Lone said. “This is a momentous occasion, as we have purchased our first home and are making the final push to fund renovations and give our first residents the specialized care they and their families have been dreaming of. The overwhelming requests for placement in this first house reinforces the importance of PWHC’s mission to purchase and support the multiple homes for the large number of California residents with PWS who lack the kind of housing they need.”
Prader-Willi Homes of California (PWHC) is a nonprofit dedicated to creating state-of-the-art residential homes in the San Francisco Bay Area for people with Prader-Willi syndrome. More info: Praderwillihomes.org.
