Minglewood Hall, 1555 Madison Avenue, Memphis, TN
Benefit produced by the innovative volunteer network Team Max,organized by the family & friends of Max Rose, a 19-year-old Memphian who dedicated his life to serving inner city youth. Max died in a car accident in January 2009, and Team Max continues his mission of service through “vigilante philanthropy,” reaching members to gather and help wherever they can -- feeding the homeless, gathering medical supplies for Haiti, working with hospitalized children, among many operations. Cloud Cult was Max Rose’s favorite band and this concert is another way to keep his spirit alive.
To honor both Max's legacy and Cloud Cult's dedication to the environment, all proceeds from the Memphis show will benefit Shelby Farms Park, the largest and most innovative urban park in America. Specifically, the money raised will provide bicycles for kids in need to use on the Shelby Farms Greenline, a seven-mile paved trail linking midtown Memphis to Shelby Farms Park.
