10.30.07 WaterAid Announces Benefit Ticket Auction to The Police Concerts in North America...


VIP Ticket Packages Include Two Front Row Center Seats to North American Concerts by The Police; All Proceeds to Benefit Non-Profit WaterAid.

Today WaterAid announced that a special benefit ticket auction for VIP ticket packages to concerts on the North American leg of The Police's world tour will be held on the non-profit auction web site Mission Fish beginning this week. The proceeds from this auction will benefit WaterAid, a non-profit organization whose mission is to overcome poverty by working with people in the world's poorest countries to improve access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene education.

This week, two front-row-center VIP seats for upcoming The Police concerts will be auctioned on Mission Fish's website at: http://www.missionfish.org/NPMMF/nphomepage.jsp?NP_ID=17803.

In addition to the best seats at each venue, the highest bidders will receive a VIP package including pre-show hospitality, an autographed tour program, parking and, at select venues, admittance to a sound check party.

On February 12, 2007, The Police announced that they would contribute a portion of the proceeds from their highly anticipated worldwide tour to WaterAid. In a statement, The Police said, "We are proud to support WaterAid in their mission to improve access to safe water, sanitation, and hygiene education in the world's poorest countries. We hope the funds and awareness raised during the tour will help to shine a light on WaterAid's efforts to bring help to millions of people in need."
