KISS raises funds for Make-A-Wish through Prizeo Live partnership

Building off of $120K raised through the tour to-date, KISS is now engaging concertgoers at its North American tour stops to donate for a chance to win one-of-a-kind KISS artwork painted by David Garibaldi

Legendary rock band KISS is partnering with world-renowned visual artist David Garibaldi and leading sweepstakes platform Prizeo to raise funds for Make-A-Wish at the North American stops on their End of the Road World Tour.

Garibaldi is opening for KISS by painting a “piece of KISSTORY,” depicting the Rock & Roll Hall of Famers’ special moments during their final run. At each concert, fans in attendance will have the opportunity to donate $10 to Make-A-Wish to enter to win Garibaldi’s painting from that night, through Prizeo’s new in-venue functionality Prizeo Live! For larger donations, fans earn additional entries to the charity sweepstakes, and bonus rewards like having messages featured on the big screen in the concert venue.

“I’m beyond honored to perform as an opener for one of the most iconic bands in music history, and help KISS raise money for the admirable work Make-A-Wish is doing for so many families,” states Garibaldi. “It’s a mix of everything I live for: art, music and giving back.”

KISS and Garibaldi will be performing — and fundraising — for the next leg of the End of the Road World Tour, August 6th through September 20th.

“Make-A-Wish has been synonymous with making dreams come true for children whose time to dream and see those wishes come true may [in some cases] be sadly limited,” says KISS frontman Paul Stanley. “KISS has worked with this great organization many times over the years and we are proud to find this meaningful way to contribute once again.”

KISS and Prizeo came together earlier this year to pilot the Prizeo Live! in-venue product, as a fun way to engage concertgoers in KISS’s philanthropic efforts. So far through their End of the Road World Tour, KISS has raised more than $120,000 for non-profit causes.

“KISS is the perfect partner to bring our Prizeo Live! in-venue donation functionality to life — they are genuinely committed to giving back and their fans are always on board to join in,” comments Prizeo General Manager Lauren Werner. “It’s been great working with KISS thus far and we’re looking forward to a super successful run with them in August and September, channeling more donations to Make-A-Wish to help even more kids live their dreams.”
