Summerfest Tickets for Charity

Summerfest - the world's largest music festival right here in our hometown - has a great program this year where you can buy tickets in advance online and a portion of the cost goes to one of 45 charities of your choice. $3 of the $15 ticket cost will be donated. In addition, your ticket purchase counts as an entry into a contest with prizes such as cash or VIP tickets to three different concerts. More info is at Summerfest's website, and here:
