Team McCready

Have  you ever attended Wishlist Pre-Parties on tour? Tons of fun … and for a good cause, right? Well, imagine them happening this weekend, all over the world! This Saturday, make plans to attend the Team McCready global events that are occurring in your area, including New York City, Seattle, The United Kingdom, Los Angeles, Iowa/Nebraska and more!

Also, for those going to the Tres Mts. show at the Grammercy Theater, the New York Team McCready event is being held at Paddy Reilly’s Music Bar, 519 2nd Avenue, 29th Street. Hmm … they’re only a few blocks away from each other. Two things to do – what a fun night!

Team McCready is a division of the Wishlist Foundation, a Pearl Jam fan non-profit organization. Team McCready is specifically dedicated to supporting the philanthropic goals and celebrating the achievements of Pearl Jam lead guitarist, Mike McCready.

The ongoing mission of Team McCready is to utilize the collective ability of the fans of Mike McCready around the globe to affect a positive change.

Pearl Jam fans are converging in …cities across the globe on March 26th to reconnect with each other and do some fund raising in honor of the master, Mike McCready! The beneficiary for this amazing global event is Advocacy for Patients with Chronic Illness.

Advocacy for Patients with Chronic Illness, Inc. is the only advocacy organization in the United States that provides free information, advice and advocacy services to patients with chronic illnesses in all areas of need including health and disability insurance, Social Security disability, employment discrimination, school-based accommodations, resource location, and more.
