“Record a Song with Switchfoot” is BIDFIRE’s first charity auction and kicks off Friday, May 28th at 12pm Pacific. The winner will be flown to San Diego to record a song with the band that will be released on iTunes and MySpace.com, VIP access to the band’s June 24th show and more!
BIDFIRE is an all new type of online auction that allows users purchase bids for $1 each and then search through the BIDFIRE database for items they’re interested in purchasing. As each bid is placed, the price increases incrementally and the person with the last bid placed when the auction closes, wins.
A portion of all bids placed during the auction will benefit StandUp for Kids (http://www.standupforkids.org/), a non-profit organization dedicated to making a difference in the lives of at-risk and homeless youth so rock for a good cause!

The auction winner’s seats will be located in the loge section (first tier above the floor) within the first five rows, either to the left or right of the stage. The auction winner may choose to be in the Pit, rather than seats. The Pit is a corralled-off area on the floor, directly in front of the stage, that houses approximately 200-300 people. Please note the Pit is standing room only and there is no guaranteed placement in the Pit –it’s a first come, first serve area. Everyone with tickets/wristbands to the Pit will form a line to enter the Pit (this line is also first come, first serve) and when the gates to the Pit open, everyone enters the Pit from whatever position you hold in that line. Once inside, the Pit is a GA area.
The E Street Lounge passes will enable the auction winner to go backstage to relax and have a drink before the show. The Lounge has a cash bar and is before show only.
Ticket pick-up takes place at the specially designated ARTIST WILL CALL WINDOWS located in the Box Office from 6:00pm on, day of show.
All proceeds from this auction will go to further Hackensack Riverkeeper’s mission to Protect, Preserve and Restore the entire Hackensack River Watershed.
