PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - The CBS Radio stations in Philadelphia and concert promoter Live Nation are joining forces to raise money for the American Red Cross fund for “Superstorm Sandy” victims.

Live Nation’s Philadelphia director of marketing Jim Sutcliffe says performers Bob Dylan and Mark Knopfler – who will be here for a concert next Monday night – gave their okay to distribute tickets to the Philly show in exchange for contributions to Red Cross relief efforts.

“These are tickets that we have and that we’re using and working together with CBS. These are tickets they allowed us to donate to this cause.”

Here’s how it works,  just CLICK HERE, then click the link to make a donation of $20 or more to the Red Cross to score two tickets to the show.

But Sutcliffe says don’t wait too long: “We have a limited number of tickets and I expect they’re going to go very quickly and hopefully that raises money very quickly for people that really need it.”
