Jonas Brothers Reward Volunteerism
The Jonas Brothers are best known as the trio of brothers who are currently enjoying success as a teen sensation band. They will appear at the Mohegan Sun Friday and Saturday.
But it seems the brothers have a charitable side outside of their rock image.
On Sunday, in an event closed to the public, the brothers will be at Dodd Stadium in Norwich to help raise awareness for the brothers’ Change for Children Foundation, an organization that encourages young people to get involved with their communities, and the HopeLine program, which works to prevent domestic violence.Tickets will not be sold at the door.
The brothers will also be playing in two kickball games “Kick for Change” against the winners of the Verizon Green Screen Community Contest. The winners are from the New England area.
Verizon Wireless and LG are rewarding members of the community who have made it a priority to give back with tickets to the exclusive event. No tickets will be made available to the public.
Verizon Wireless will also be making a donation to the Women’s Shelter of Southeastern Connecticut.
Five thousand tickets are being distributed through volunteer organizations and the Women’s Shelter of Southeastern Connecticut. The tickets are going to volunteers and individuals affected by domestic violence.
About the Jonas Brothers Green Screen Kickball Contest
Fans had the opportunity to either jam with the Jonas Brothers or play kickball with them via a green screen video live at the concert venues, at home, or from their mobile phones. They entered their videos on http://VCASTLive.vzw.com, where V CAST Live members voted on them. There were five weekly winners based on the videos that receive the highest number of votes each week.
The Jonas Brothers selected the grand prizewinner from the five weekly winners.
The grand prize winner was awarded the opportunity to hand pick their “Friends & Family” team by inviting nine friends and family members, all of whom were flown to play one kickball game, live and in person, against the Jonas Brothers this fall. The other four weekly winners each get to bring one guest.
