Posted on: July 29, 2009
This fall DSO will hit the road on another Rex Caravan Tour where $1 for very ticket sold will be donated to The Rex Foundation that was created by the Grateful Dead in 1984 as an outlet for their charitable donations. The tour begins in the Great Northwest with a show in Seattle before a two night stand in Portland, OR.
The 8th Black Tie-Dye Ball will be held Friday, September 25 in Portland, OR at the Crystal Ballroom. Proceeds help support local area non - profit programs. The September 25th Black Tie - Dye Ball also helps celebrate the 3rd month - long DSO Rex Caravan Tour, where every show along the way includes $1 per ticket as a contribution to the Rex Foundation.
The Rex Foundation presented the first Black Tie - Dye Ball in Chicago in March 2004 with Dark Star Orchestra. Since then, there have been Black Tie - Dye Balls in New York City, Washington, D.C., Denver, Colorado, Los Angeles and San Francisco. These festive occasions provide the opportunity to collaborate with gifted performers that care about the Rex Foundation.
