This is your friendly reminder to get you ass out tomorrow and support a much worthy cause blending 2 of your favorite worlds together –  Eagles football and some of the best indie music this city has to offer.

TSI published an article about Connor Barwin‘s Make The World a better Place benefit show about a month ago when it was first announced. If you been sitting on your hands waiting to purchase tickets, now’s the time because this show will sellout.

The best and true part to this whole endeavor, for any of your haters out there…. All proceeds from the concert will be donated and matched by MTWB for the revitalization project at Ralph Brooks Park in South Philly. Even press, like TSI, who wants to attend to cover the show, and all guests of the Eagles, etc, HAVE to purchase to get in. Why, because this is a real benefit and given the fact that the general admission ticket price is only $25, anyone who complains about having to pay probably should be there in the first place. Who would have a problem paying $25 for this lineup anyway, let alone that fact that it’s all going to rebuild Ralph Brooks Park in Point Breeze at 20th and Tasker streets.

And what better timing since a 13 year old was just shot near there on Sunday. The revitalization of this park has been underway for over a year and a half, but Barwin’s benefit could put things over the edge to steadfast this project and create a safer place for kids and families in this neighborhood now.

VIP Tickets are available for Eagles Meet n Greet pre party event.
