Do I really have to give a reason why you should spend your weekend listening to Dave Matthews Band?

Really?

Well, if you insist.

Dave Matthews spent last Sunday helping raise money at the ninth annual John Varvato’s Stuart House Benefit.

The Stuart House is a facility for child victims of sexual assault established by the Santa Montica-UCLA Medical Center’s Rape Treatment Center.

According to the Stuart House page on www.911rape.org, the Stuart House:

[...] remedies many of the problems in the traditional system that often revictimize these profoundly traumatized children, such as multiple, repetitive interviews in cold, institutional settings; low prosecution rates; and critical shortages in expert medical care and therapy services.

This year, the event raised more than $700,000, bringing the grand total over the past nine years to more than $2.7 million.

Also at the benefit were Alice Cooper, Steven Tyler, Cindy Crawford, Zoe Saldana (Avatar), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), and Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhaulder (The Vampire Diaries).

So, what are you waiting for? Head over to Pandora or Spotify (or, if you’re super cool, just pull out your own DMB albums!) and jam to some DMB this weekend!

Go!

Now!
