Anyone who has attended a Dead & Company show this summer has surely seen Participation Row, the charity outreach program spearheaded by both HeadCount and REVERB. The organizations have put together a place for charity representatives to get together and share information about their respective causes, with auctions and outreach efforts to entice participation.Today, we’ve learned that Manasha and Keelin Garcia have added their charity, the Jerry Garcia Foundation, to the list of charities at Participation Row. The Jerry Garcia Foundation supports meaningful causes through arts and music, and their booth will encourage fans to write on the #StoriesofGratitude board.“We are honored to be a part of The Participation Row charity village in the presence of music that continues to uplift and inspire,” said Manasha Garcia in a statement about their joining the cause. “The Foundation is very grateful to Dead & Company, HeadCount and Reverb for their generosity.”The Jerry Garcia Foundation’s guest charity partners, including Musicians On A Mission, 1% for the Planet, Alive Inside Foundation, Shimer College, Fender Music Foundation and Playing for Change Foundation, will share the table at Participation Row on designated event dates. It looks to be an excellent way to inspire change throughout the community.
