Glide Magazine Sets HeadCount Donation Record

Saturday, July 24th was a very special day for HeadCount. The not-for profit, nonpartisan organization devoted to voter registration set a single-show record of 466 registrations at the Dead show at Alpine Valley. They also generated about $370 in donations. That too would have been a HeadCount record, only at a moe./Chris Robinson/Particle concert on the same day, a Glide sponsored raffle generated $421.

This new donation record was reached through a special raffle made possible by the music and lifestyle Web site Glide Magazine, which donated two Great Woods Phish tickets as the prize. All of the funds generated by donations and raffles at concerts go directly toward HeadCount’s nationwide voter registration campaign, and are crucial to their efforts. HeadCount offered sincere thanks to all the good folks at for their generosity and support for the cause of voter registration, and to the Dead fans and volunteers in Wisconsin.

Saturday was also very special for another reason. HeadCount co-Chair, Disco Biscuits bassist Marc Brownstein, and his wife Deborah had their first child. A healthy 6 lbs 8 oz. baby boy. The mother-to-be went into labor the night before at a Sound Tribe Sector Nine show in their hometown of Santa Cruz, Calif., with HeadCount volunteers registering voters nearby.

HeadCount is a not-for profit, nonpartisan organization devoted to voter regustration and participation. We are run entirely by volunteers and rely on the generosity of others. Volunteer or make a tax deductible donation today.
