94/7 is partnering with Vitalogy Foundation for the EB Research Partnership
Pearl Jam's Vitalogy Foundation has partnered with us to raise money for several amazing nonprofit organizations in 2015 and beyond! The Vitalogy Foundation is a public non-profit organization founded in 2006 by the members of Pearl Jam and their manager, supporting the efforts of non profit organizations doing commendable work in the fields of community health, the environment, arts and education, and social change. $2 from every ticket sold to our December to Remember concert series will benefit the Vitalogy Foundation which supports the EB Research Partnership. EB (Epidermolysis Bullosa) is devastating, and currently without a cure. An individual with EB lacks a critical protein that binds the layers of skin together. Without this protein, the skin tears apart, blisters and sheers off, leading to severe pain, disfigurement, and wounds that never heal. Given that EB affects only 30,000 people in the US, advancing this research relies on the generosity of individuals and corporations. Stay tuned to 94/7 this fall for December to Remember show dates and lineup announcements! (NOTE: Pearl Jam will not be performing at these shows.) Learn more about Pearl Jam’s Vitalogy Foundation.

Pass the Keys!
Tailgating this football season? Then do yourself and everyone else a favor and Pass the Keys! Designate a driver BEFORE the party gets started, have a plan for getting people home safely if you’re the host, and always buckle up—it’s still the best defense against drunk drivers. Nearly 10,000 people lose their lives each year in alcohol-related crashes and sports fans should be aware that the Oregon State Police (OSP), local sheriffs and police departments plan to have extra traffic patrols on game days to keep the roads safe. This football season, Pass The Keys and designate a driver. A message from the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, OSP, Oregon Department of Transportation…and every other driver on the road.
