unless you are an unidentified guest, I will create a group based on responses, and send a PM once they arrive...

Please add me to your response list.

How would the donation be handled from a tax write-off perspective? I know we are talking small dollars here, but am more curious than anything.

I know when I went to the Jerry Memorial concert last September at the Greek, I received a letter with my ticket from Rex stating what amount of my ticket could be used as a donation (Ticket price - ticket value = donation for tax reasons).

For the picks, would the tax benefit be held by or at the purchaser level.

Once again, I could care less either way, as long as Rex receives donations. Sitting at work letting my mind wander...

Take care, BLB.

I am going to be talking to Rex about that. I will not take a tax break with the money raised. But, I too just got my Rex black tie-dye ball tickets, and part of that was a write off. But, to be safe, I'd just like to say this first round may not have that benefit..
