On behalf of Alex, myself and the entire GUP team I'd like to say a huge ginormous THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH to all of our fans, friends, and followers who took the time and spent their hard earned money to support this Grapes Under Pressure 3 Ebay auction in support of Grapes for Humanity Canada. Your money will go a super long way to help rebuild health care facilities in the Philippines that were damaged or destroyed in the Haiyan Typhoon. You have helped a lot of people!On October 8th, Rush.com posted:
Thank you all for caring!
my best to you,
Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson have launched the most Rush memorabilia on their eBay auction as part of their Grapes Under Pressure 3 initiative in support of Grapes for Humanity, an organization that helps to raise funds to benefit humanitarian causes around the world with the assistance of the international wine community.
The Grapes Under Pressure eBay auction has been fast and furious since went live on Friday!
Some of the standouts include 53 bids for a signed Different Stages promo photo, 27 bids for a signed Moving Pictures Live test pressing, and 15 bids for Geddy’s home studio used Ovation acoustic guitar.
Things will really start to heat up as we move towards auction closing times on Monday evening, Oct. 13th.
You can watch the action here. Or even better, join in the fun and make a bid! It’s all for a good cause.
Included in the auction are:
ALL proceeds will be directed to Grapes for Humanity, Canada www.grapesforhumanity.com
- An autographed Geddy Lee Custom Shop Relic Fender Jazz Bass (limited edition, only 50 of these basses have been built as an exact replica of Geddy’s stage bass).
- An autographed Alex Lifeson Signature Gibson Axcess Les Paul Guitar signed by Alex, Geddy and Neil.
- A Rush autographed DW Snare Drum with NHL Logos Limited Edition, one of only 6 built.
Grapes for Humanity Canada is proud to partner with Magna Children at Risk, and proceeds for this exclusive event will go directly to rebuild health care facilities in the Philippines which were damaged by the Haiyan Typhoon.
Thanks for your support!
Geddy & Alex
