OCT 30: EVERCLEAR GUITAR AUCTION
Might be a little pricey for most of you - but Christmas is just around
From: Nora O'Brien
I am Nora O'Brien from ACES, Association for Children for Enforcement of
Support. Art Alexakis of Everclear is a big supporter of ours when he
played Rock n Roll Jeopardy for us in July 1999. He won a beautiful Les
Paul guitar valued at $4600.00 for us. As a nonprofit organization that
helps families owed support like Art when he was growing up, we want to
sell the guitar to raise funds for our much needed programs.
Please visit our website: www.childsupport-aces.org.
The guitar was used in a rehearsal last month, signed by the entire band
and the package includes many accessories such as their strap, some of the
band's picks, and some Gibson collector cards. This guitar is now up for
sale on ebay under rock n roll memorabilia for $7500.00.
In addition, Art Alexakis spoke about the issue of nonsupport during the
Spitfire Tour. The bill, HR 1488, would create a federal child support
collection system through the IRS. Art will be testifying before Congress
in January and March before the House Judiciary Committee and the House
Social Security Sub Committee of the House Ways and Means Committee.

OCT 30: LILY CLAIRE BENEFIT
Last Saturday, Everclear played three songs at the 2nd Annual Lili Claire
Foundation Dinner at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, California.
The Lily Claire Foundation raises money for children suffering from
Williams Syndrome. The benefit was a $300/plate dinner, attended by
a wide array of celebrities.
The boys performed acoustically in their six-man formation, aided
by a four-piece string quartet. The setlist: "Everything to Everyone",
"Santa Monica", and "Father of Mine".
