On August 14 Paul McCartney is set to play a very special gig at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park called “Farewell to Candlestick: The Final Concert.” It will be the last show to be played at the stadium before the venue is demolished. For McCartney, and the fans lucky enough to be there, it will be a farewell show for the venue where the Beatles played their final full concert as a group on August 29, 1966.
Well, there’s a chance for you to win tickets to the gig – and to help a very worthwhile charity at the same time.
Paul is helping an organisation called Aid Still Required build a new school in Haiti for kids who would otherwise never get an education. Fans can enter a contest to win a trip to San Francisco (airfares and hotel included), attend soundcheck at Paul’s Candlestick Park date, meet Macca backstage, take photos with him, and then watch the concert from VIP seats reserved for his guests.

All you need to do is make a donation (there are a range of options starting from as little as $10). You’ll not only be helping out kids in Haiti, but your donation will also put you in with a chance to be at the historic Candlestick Park concert on August 14.
The prize is for one winner and one guest to fly to San Francisco and see Paul McCartney play Candlestick Park. The prize includes economy class flights from anywhere in the world for two people and two nights hotel accommodation. The contest closes on July 28.
About Haiti…..On January 12th, 2010 a Point 7 magnitude earthquake struck just off the coast of Port Au Prince, killing 230,000 and injuring millions more. Just because it’s no longer in the headlines doesn’t mean this devastated country is no longer in great need. Find out more at the Aid Still Required Facebook page.
