Yeti's "One For The Roadies (Part 2)" auction will donate proceeds to the Crew Nation relief fund
All proceeds from Yeti’s One for the Roadies campaign go to Crew Nation, a relief fund established by Live Nation that helps unemployed live music workers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Beasties’ cooler comes “full of merch and includes a vinyl copy of Beastie Boys Music”; the Brandi Carlile cooler features art created by the singer and her family — and includes a drawing of a unicorn and rainbows on the lid– while the My Morning Jacket one comes with cool artwork created by the band’s Jim James.
The auction ends on Jan. 12 at 11 am ET.
In August 2020, Yeti held its first online fundraiser, auctioning coolers designed by more than 35 musicians including Green Day, Margo Price, Leon Bridges and more. Yeti raised more than $135,000 for out-of-work touring crews with that “One for the Roadies” auction, with the highest bids reaching $6,025 for coolers customized by Eric Church (with an eagle clutching the country singer’s signature) and the Avett Brothers.
Other participating artists include Tanya Tucker, Mavis Staples, Little Big Town, Shepard Fairey, Brittany Howard, Jon Batiste, Grace Potter, Fleet Foxes, Tenacious D, the Head and the Heart, and the Decemberists.
