“Our CBS Radio stations will stay committed to helping those who lost homes, belongings and memories to Hurricane Sandy.  We’re thrilled to be partnering with Live Nation and Comcast-Spectacor  and using as many assets as possible to help the recovery of our region,” says Marc Rayfield, Senior Vice President and Market Manager for the CBS Radio Stations in Philadelphia.

“When we approached CBS Radio to try and help in these tough times-we were truly in awe of the graciousness,” said Geoff Gordon, President of Live Nation Philadelphia. “The idea of these artists donating this bank of tickets and letting us raise money for the American Red Cross really has a dual meaning.  It provides an entry point for someone to donate and receive 2 tickets at the same time.  It also sends the message that you can still enjoy music, which I think we all agree, has helped us through times in the past, now and will hold true to do so in the future. We are also grateful of our truly great relationship with Comcast-Spectacor.  Their participation made this relief effort possible.”
