Sonja Flemming/CBSGrateful Dead singer/guitarist Bob Weir will perform at a holiday charity event being co-organized by the Jerry Garcia Foundation that’s scheduled for Friday, December 18, at the Hard Rock Cafe in San Francisco. Door proceeds from the WhyHunger Holiday Benefit will be donated to Yoko Ono‘s “Imagine There’s No Hunger” campaign, which seeks to aid hungry and impoverished children around the world through the WhyHunger organization’s feeding and agricultural-education programs.

The benefit will be hosted by famed Woodstock Festival speaker and peace activist Wavy Gravy, and will feature a number of other musical performers in addition to Weir, including the groups Rainbow Full of Sound and Keystone Revisited.

In addition, artist Stanley Mouse, who has created art for The Beatles and The Grateful Dead, has designed a poster for the WhyHunger Holiday Benefit.

“We have so much gratitude to all those coming together to raise awareness and support for this great cause,” said Keelin Garcia, youngest daughter of the late Jerry Garcia and co-founder of The Jerry Garcia Foundation. “Music and the arts continue to change the world for the better.”
