ASPCA Announces Partnership with 2010 Lilith TourKicks Off Contest to Honor Courageous Animal Advocates, Offers Free Tickets
NEW YORKThe ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) today announced a partnership with the 2010 Lilith Tour, the one-of-a-kind, touring festival featuring music megastars including Sheryl Crow, Norah Jones, Rihanna, and tour co-founder and ASPCA supporter Sarah McLachlan.
In the spirit of the tour's generosity – the festival donates a large portion of its proceeds to various national and international women's charities – the ASPCA is holding an online contest to find courageous female animal advocates across the country. Supporters are encouraged to visit the ASPCA Web site and, in 300 words or less, nominate a woman they know who has made great strides in improving the lives of animals. Nominations will be accepted on a rolling basis through early August. For more information about the contest or to submit a nomination and photo, please visit www.aspca.org/news/lilith-fair.
"Since its inception, Lilith Fair has become an important symbol of strength and compassion," said ASPCA President & CEO Ed Sayres. "We recognize the value of having such compassion and kindness in our society, and we are thrilled to be working with the Lilith Fair and Sarah to honor so many heroic women."
A grand prize winner who has shown special dedication to combating animal cruelty and pet homelessness will receive a guitar autographed by acts participating in the tour. Thirty supporters will also be awarded two free tickets each to attend a show in their town.
