Super Bowl 50 Tickets to be Auctioned to Benefit Award-Winning Non Profit 2nd Annual Musclepalooza Concert to Benefit the FSH Society and Muscular Dystrophy Research
Date:9/24/2015

On October 3, 2015, music fans will gather for the 2nd Annual Musclepalooza Music Benefit Concert to raise critical funds for the FSH Society and muscular dystrophy research. The festive event will include music from John Beacher and Jesse Pierce featuring Barry Heimowitz. There will also be a live auction with passes to The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, a JJ Watt autographed football and Sonos speakers. It will also feature the extraordinary opportunity to bid on tickets to the most-anticipated Super Bowl ever – Super Bowl 50, taking place at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., on Sunday, February 7, 2016. Four tickets will be up for auction at a retail value of $1,000 per ticket. The event is open to the public and all proceeds will benefit the award-winning non-profit, the FSH Society.

The benefit is being hosted by Alan Brown, a Holicong, PA resident who suffers from FSHD. Alan was diagnosed with FSHD when he was in his early twenties. He then went on to pursue a career as the director of project management at NFL Films, a subsidiary of the NFL and winner of 120 Emmys. “The FSH Society needs to ensure that it is funding research for a cure and also able to provide the patient support and advocacy we all depend on year after year,” said Alan Brown. “So, when the FSH Society asked for help raising funds, I felt having a music benefit would be a fun way of raising both money and awareness for FSH.”

FSHD, one of the most prevalent types of muscular dystrophy, is a degenerative muscle disease that causes progressive weakness, usually starting with the face, shoulder and arms, but can affect almost any skeletal muscle. FSHD affects approximately 870,000 people yet, currently, there is no treatment or cure.

"We are so grateful to have the support of someone like Alan in our FSH Society community,” said June Kinoschita, executive director of the FSH Society. “Alan is the perfect example of someone who makes the most of living with FSHD. He makes it a priority to dedicate time to plan creative fundraisers that help support the FSH Society and bring awareness to FSHD.”
