As in all previous years, a portion of every ticket sold benefits select local charities. To date, more than $13 million has been distributed from TSO to worthy charities all across North America.

In July, TSO sadly lost another member, longtime bassist Dave Z (David Zablidowsky), in a tragic accident.  For fans who would like to make additional donations in Paul or Dave’s names, TSO suggests you do something unusually kind or generous for someone less fortunate or for someone who could just use a helping hand.
