December 11, 2007

Los Angeles, CA – The T. J. Martell Foundation in conjunction with 10th Street Entertainment, is proud to announce it will auction off a Day in the Studio experience with Eleven Seven Music / Atlantic Records Recording artists Buckcherry, with proceeds going to Leukemia, Cancer and AIDS Research. In an eBay auction, which will begin on Sunday, December 16, 2007, at 12:00 p.m. PST/ 3:00 p.m. EST, and running for one week only, Buckcherry fans can bid on a once-in-a-lifetime chance to spend a day in a Los Angeles, California recording studio with the band while they record tracks for their fourth full-length CD release.

The winning bidder and a guest will receive round-trip coach airfare courtesy of Continental Airlines from any major U.S. city, two nights accommodations from a leading Four Star Hollywood or Beverly Hills hotel, and two days use of a Mercedes Benz C300 courtesy of Midway Car Rental. As a memento to remember this experience, the band will also present the winning bidder with a brand-new autographed Schecter guitar.

Buckcherry, with their hit singles ‘Crazy Bitch,’ ‘Broken Glass,’ ‘Everything,’ and ‘Sorry,’ from their 2006 release “15”, which has remained on the Billboard 200 for a remarkable 85 weeks, has reached near-Platinum RIAA sales status. Arguably the most popular multi-format hit-makers in America, reaching the upper echelons of the Rock, Alternative and now the Hot/AC and Pop charts, Buckcherry also has the third most popular MySpace page, with almost 12 million views and 340,000 friends. The band will also be celebrating their 300th live show at Las Vegas’ House of Blues on December 15th in support of their triumphant current release.

All proceeds from the Day in the Studio with Buckcherry Experience Auction will benefit the life-saving research conducted at eight leading research facilities, including Children’s Hospital L.A., The Mayo Clinic, Vanderbilt-Ingram, Columbia Presbyterian Cancer Center, and others. The T. J. Martell Foundation has auctioned off many celebrity experiences for charity on eBay such as a Day In The Studio with Metallica, front row Bon Jovi concert tickets, tickets and stage access for the 2004 through 2007 Vans Warped Tour, autographed instruments, as well as other experiences with top bands and recording artists.

Columbia/Sony music industry executive Tony Martell, who was instrumental in the signing of Ozzy Osbourne and Stevie Ray Vaughn, among others, founded The T. J. Martell Foundation in 1975 in memory of his son, T.J., a victim of Leukemia. The T. J. Martell Foundation, which has raised more than $230 million over 32 years, remains dedicated to raising money for the innovative initial and ongoing research of the treatments and cures of the world’s three most deadliest diseases: Leukemia, Cancer, and AIDS. In 2001, T.J. Martell Foundation funds contributed to the discovery of Gleevec, the breakthrough drug that has a profound effect on a rare strain of Leukemia.
