(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The Guacamole Fund, promoter Tom Campbell's Hermosa Beach, CA non-profit organization, is in financial trouble and seeking industry help.
"Due to the state of the union and the economy, it has become increasingly difficult to raise the funds that cover our operating budget," says a post on its website www.guacfund.org. "As most of you know, last January we closed the office that we had been working in for 18 years. We are asking those of you visiting our website to make a donation of any amount (tax deductible) to The Guacamole Fund so we can continue to do this work."
'We realize that everyone is asked for donations by the many great organizations out there working to make this country a better place. We hope to be able to continue playing our small part in this work, but we need to raise money so that we will be able to continue raising funds and providing publicity and networking opportunities for organizations working in the public interest."
Campbell has produced over 600 benefit concerts over the past 30 years and has raised more than $20 million. Some of the artists who have performed include Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Eagles, Tom Petty &The
Heartbreakers, Bonnie Raitt and David Crosby.
