Rick Allen, drummer of DEF LEPPARD, will auction off once-in-a-lifetime VIP packages, in four cities, to benefit his Raven Drum Foundation and U.S. troops coming home. Each package will include: two premium tickets to watch DEF LEPPARD live in concert, pre-concert meet-and-greet with Rick Allen for auction winner plus one guest, and catered dinner backstage with Rick. Additionally, Rick will escort auction the winner plus their guest on a private backstage tour of his drum kit before the concert. There will time to get autographs, take photos and chat with Rick. Complimentary hotels rooms will be included in Atlantic City and Las Vegas. Each of these locations will provide one room for the night of the concert.
All proceeds from these auctions will be donated to the Raven Drum Foundation and their Trauma & Resiliency Program, a comprehensive project for veterans and survivors of trauma which uses drumming as a healing tool.
The Raven Drum Foundation was founded in 2001 by Rick Allen and Lauren Monroe, a musician and healing practitioner, in order to educate, support, and empower.
