Dine Alone Records and Dallas Green (City and Colour/Alexisonfire) raised $175,000 together with the help of artists and friends across the industry—Alexisonfire to A$AP Rocky, Daniel Caesar to The Tragically Hip, P!nk to Alice in Chains, celebrity chef Matty Matheson to the Letterkenny cast—through a special raffle, with 100% of proceeds to be donated to various charities in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
The label virtually opened its doors from June 25 to July 5 to raffle dozens of items donated by various artists including one-of-a-kind items like test pressings, rarities, signed records, gear and memorabilia. The full list is available here: https://www.dinealonestore.
Winners will be drawn and contacted on July 10. Each $10 contributed to the raffle represented one chance to be the lucky recipient of the item with no limit on the amount one can donate, ie, $100 = 10 chances to win.
All contributions raised from the raffle will be split evenly and donated directly to the organizations listed below.
