A Wishlist Foundation preparty fundraiser is a group of fans gathering before a Pearl Jam concert to meet up and make new friends. Add in a charitable cause that you want to support, mix in a raffle and some merchandise available for a small donation and you’re joining with fellow fans to do great things!

PJ20 Preparty:

The first official preparty fundraiser happened on October 5, 2004 at Humphrey’s Bar & Grill in St. Louis prior to the Pearl Jam VFC concert organized by Brent Hinson and Laura Trafton.

Due to its success, and the success of the 2005 Canadian preparty fundraisers, Wishlist Foundation was federally granted 501(c)3 nonprofit organization status.

To date, Wishlist Foundation has raised over $1.5 million dollars for local and national nonprofits.
