News From AWMH

Thank You!!!

NOVEMBER 6, 2018

Wow, what a night! Thanks to all of you and our generous sponsors, our inaugural Helping Hands Concert and Auction held in San Francisco raised over $1.3 million! Those funds will be used to work with our partners at Feeding America and the American Association of Community Colleges as All Within My Hands continues to tackle the issues of hunger and workforce education and work to create sustainable communities.

Celebrating the first full year of All Within My Hands, the event was hosted at the very intimate SF Masonic and we were lucky enough to have our friends Cage the Elephant join us as we both performed acoustically. The bidding wars were furious for the auction items on display online and in the lobby of the Masonic as there was a wide variety of unique experiences and unusual memorabilia. Our instruments played that night, as well as a number of unique experiences (some of which personally involve members of the band) are still available as bidding continues through 5 PM PT November 9th at

There are so many people to thank who made this event happen that we don’t know where to start! From all of the generous sponsors and those who donated auction items to the mighty Metallica crew and all the folks at the Masonic; to all of you who purchased tickets and contributed in any way you were able, and to the AWMH Executive Board, thank you! And a huge shout out to the musicians who joined us on stage, Avi, David, Cody, and Henry, as well as our MC for the night, Kurt Braunohler. This was truly an amazing effort and we are so proud and humbled to have all of this love and support in our first year. We’re already starting the plans for the next one!

A very limited supply of event posters and T-shirts are available now in the Met Store at
