If a report from the San Francisco Chronicle holds true, a bevy of major stars will come together to perform at AT&T Park in San Francisco to raise funds for victims of the the Wine Country fires. The Chronicle’s report indicates big wigs from the music industry and beyond are aiming to raise $30 – $50 million from a potential benefit concert.
Here’s what journalist Willie Brown wrote about what could be a big show:
Word is Salesforce’s Marc Benioff, along with tech investor Ron Conway and Tipping Point’s Daniel Lurie, are working with Giants President Larry Baer and Another Planet Entertainment’s Gregg Perloff on a big benefit concert at AT&T Park for the Wine Country fire victims.
The goal would be to raise between $30 million and $50 million, with all of it going directly to those hit by the fire and with none to the “overhead” usually taken by big charities.
The exact date is still in flux, depending on which performers are available when. But they’re aiming to make it happen in early November.
