Seattle’s superheroes Phoenix Jones and Purple Reign take crime fighting to a whole new level on May 12, 2012 in partnership with Rainn Wilson and Seattle bands Quickie and Ghost Town Riot.
Phoenix and Purple have made an undeniable impact on the streets of Seattle where the victims of crime know they have someone looking out for them. Now victims of domestic violence can count on Seattle’s Superheroes as well. On Saturday May 12, 2012 The Healing Reign Music Benefit & Auction will take place at Nectar Lounge in Fremont to raise funds and give resources to victims of abuse.
Purple Reign, a survivor of domestic violence, has launched the first and largest campaign of its kind among costumed activists through her non-profit The Purple Reign Campaign. All of the funds raised in the current campaign are being donated to Northwest Family Life, a local non-profit that for over twenty years, has been providing education programs, advocacy, counseling and treatment for people whose lives have been impacted by domestic violence.
To close out the campaign, bands Quickie and Ghost Town Riot will be joining the superheroes in the upcoming The Healing Reign Music Benefit & Auction. Quickie recently released the single “Phoenix Jones” honoring Rain City’s superhero and will be debuting their music video at the event. The 3-piece pop-punk band song’s have been featured in the shows “The Secret Circle” &”Vampire Diaries” on CW, “Parenthood” on NBC and in the movie “Our Lips are Sealed” featuring the Olsen Twins.
Local businesses have also joined the superheroes by donating items for the silent auction portion of this event. Self-defense classes from Belltown’s Axtion Club, salon gift baskets from Vain, and other items and services will be available at the auction, with all proceeds benefiting the victims.
The world is not going to change without your help and The Healing Reign Music Benefit & Auction is a fun way to show your support for victims of violent and silent crimes. Not to mention, local celebrities Quickie and Ghost Town Riot will be available for autographs and pictures along with Phoenix Jones and Purple Reign (featured in GQ Magazine, Esquire, and People) along with other accredited crime fighting members of the Rain City Superhero Movement.
Also debuting at the event, a special video message from Rainn Wilson, star of the hit show “The Office” and the movie “Super”, showing his support for the Purple Reign Campaign ~ Everyday Heroes Against Domestic Abuse.
