Pearl Jam is offering one very lucky fan the opportunity to have the experience of a lifetime via the All-In Challenge, which is raising money to battle food insecurity in the United States.

The band recently launched the “Pearl Jam Birthday Package” raffle on the All-In Challenge’s website. The raffle package is a Pearl Jam fan’s dream of celebrating your birthday by joining the band for a day at a future tour date. The raffle offers the following to one lucky winner:

-Join the band for soundcheck and help Eddie Vedder come up with the setlist for that night’s show.
-Spend the first half of the show at the soundboard and then spend the second half of the show on the side of the stage.
-During the second half of the show, you’ll work as a show crew member, and Vedder will “share a bottle from his personal red wine stash with you.”
-You’ll then officially celebrate your birthday when you join the band on stage and have the crowd sing “Happy Birthday” to you and get to blow out the candles on a birthday cake.
-Finally, you’ll get to walk away with a “birthday gift” of a Fender Telecaster signed by the entire band.

Raffle tickets for this experience are available in $10, $25, $50 and $100 increments. To enter the raffle, head over to
