We are very pleased to announce that The Bill Graham Memorial Foundation will be the recipient of "Night On The Green" a fundraising event at the Oakland A's - Washington Nationals game at O.co Coliseum, Saturday May 10th - game start time 6:05PM.

Following the game that night, Bay Area favorite sons, Journey, will have their music set to a huge fireworks display. Journey begins a major tour May 15th at the Sleep Train Amphitheatre in Chula Vista, so we'll be helping to send them on their way in style. Journey co-founder and lead guitarist Neal Schon, and keyboardist Jonathan Cain will perform the national anthem at the game, and Jonathan Cain will throw out the first pitch!

Starting in 1973 and lasting well into the early 1990s, Bill Graham presented an extraordinary series of shows at Oakland Stadium, called "Day on the Green" - just a few of the myriad of performers included The Grateful Dead, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Led Zeppelin, Peter Frampton, The Beach Boys, The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Parliament-Funkadelic, The Who, U2, Bob Dylan, The Police, Metallica, Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones and Journey. These shows continued until shortly after Bill's untimely passing in 1991.

In honor of "Night On the Green", a commemorative T-shirt designed by poster artist Ruben Rude will be available to you either with your seat in the special Bill Graham Memorial Foundation section of the ballpark, or if you already have your tickets to the May 10th game, you'll be able to purchase a T-shirt while you are there. All proceeds from the sale of the commemorative "Night On The Green" T-shirt and a portion of the ticket sales in the Bill Graham Memorial Foundation section will benefit the Foundation.
