For the second year in a row, RED Distribution has teamed with an array of artists to offer limited-edition exclusive pink vinyl versions of new and recent albums for the Ten Bands One Cause fundraiser, and The Record Exchange is celebrating with a listening party on Tuesday, Sept. 29 (6pm)!
Join us to hear tracks from the albums and enjoy free Ten Bands One Cause cupcakes (pink cake, pink icing and chocolate drizzle) from New York City’s Baked By Melissa! We’ll also have silkscreened posters (pictured, right) to give out free with purchase of any of the titles.
Last year during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, RED along with its account, artist and label partners raised nearly $30,000 for Gilda’s Club NYC, an organization that provides community support for both those diagnosed with cancer and their caretakers. It is named after comedian Gilda Radner, who passed away from the disease at the age of 43 in 1989. In 2015, a new crop of artists and labels are coming to the table to grow this campaign — at least $1 from each album sold will go to Gilda’s Club NYC.
