Swedish House Mafia To Auction Tickets for their ‘Black Tie Rave’


Having already raised nearly half a million dollars for charity, including the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City and the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund, Swedish House Mafia has announced a second round to their charity auction efforts.

Tickets to their highly anticipated Black Tie Rave on February 28 at NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom are the subjects of the auction, which begins on February 1 at 10am EST at Ticketmaster. This auction will benefit Save The Children, which is committing itself to join the national dialogue on gun control in the wake of December’s tragedy in Newton, Connecticut. More precisely:

Save The Children’s goal is to use their experience in advocacy, their seven decades of serving poor and vulnerable children in the U.S., and their commitment to children’s protection and rights to inform and influence both the dialogue and the policies that will emerge as the nation addresses issues that have a direct impact on the safety, security and well-being of its citizens—especially children.

Bids begin at $100.00 per ticket with a minimum purchase of 2 tickets and maximum of 4 tickets.

Get involved for some great causes and cop some tickets for an amazing event in the same breath! The first auction sold out quickly, so be sure to set your calendars and timers and what not – missing out is no fun.
