The Goo Goo Dolls are excited to be partnering once again with LA's Good Shepherd Shelter and playing a very special benefit event at The Troubadour on December 15th. All proceeds from the show will go directly to the Shelter, and all ticket buyers are also encouraged to bring a new unwrapped toy for collection to the show. Tickets for the event are $40 and go on sale November 7th.
The Good Shepherd Shelter has an extensive history dedicated to helping women and girls who have been abused or exploited in their life situations. Their mission is "to stop the generational cycle of domestic violence by providing individualized, comprehensive services and shelter to battered women and their children and by raising the level of community awareness through advocacy and education," through tools like their separate family apartment units, education and schooling options for children and adults, therapeutic services, and legal advocacy, all on site. They are online at http://www.goodshepherdshelter.info/ and via phone at (323)737-6111.
Be sure to pick up ANONYMOUS, the novel that Publishers Weekly hailed as a "well-crafted piece of experimental, voyeuristic fiction..." and "a winning jumble of the gritty, the raw, and the grotesque" at http://www.tanamor.com/p/anonymous.html.
