Katy Perry Auctioning VIP Package Benefiting Veterans

07/23/2014
.
(BM) Katy Perry has announced that she has teamed up with Veterans Matter, a charity that helps homeless veterans. Perry is offering fans the opportunity to bid on a chance to meet her backstage plus 2 VIP tickets to any one of her six upcoming Midwest concert performances. We were sent these details:

The winning bidder for this "Shine a Light with Katy Perry" package will be able to choose among 5 Midwest concert locations, part of her ongoing Prismatic World Tour including Chicago (Aug. 7, 8) , Grand Rapids (Aug. 10) , Auburn Hills (Aug. 11) Columbus (Aug. 12) and Cleveland (Aug 14)

Veterans Matter, a national program of 1Matters, a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit with roots going back to 1990, was started by founder Ken Leslie in 2012 after he learned that the biggest obstacle facing thousands of homeless veterans eligible for waiting long- term housing assistance was simply the lack of a rental deposit. Veterans Matter provides that deposit directly to the landlord and has now housed 350 veterans in six states.

"Katy's huge heart and compassion for those in need is well documented. Homeless veterans are being beaten, robbed, and even killed on the streets of our nation; we'd be outraged if this happened overseas. In addition helping raise funds, she is also letting these vets know that America has not abandoned them," said Leslie.

Veterans Matter partners with the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and Veteran Affairs (VA) to provide rental deposits to homeless veterans that qualify for voucher-assisted living but can't fund the initial housing costs. More details.
