If you have already bought your Ben Harper concert tickets for August 26th, you have already contributed to a very good cause. You'll be enjoying a world renowned artist and helping kids in the Bend La Pine Schools music programs. Ben Harper will donate one dollar of every ticket sold to the Education Foundation for Bend La Pine Schools. Heather Vihstadt is the Executive Director for the Foundation: “We are thrilled. I also learned that it is Ben Harper’s only Oregon show. So I would not be surprised if it did sell out." Vihstadt says the money will be given to a new music program, BendAid. That's a new non-profit program whose purpose is to raise funds for K through 12 cash-strapped music programs. "It’s really going to be helping to support music and the arts, where in the classroom or perhaps after school programs." You can get more information at the Education Foundation website.
