Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson attended a Grapes for Humanity charity dinner event in early October which benefited the Amani Home for Street Kids in Moshi, Tanzania and raised $40,000 for the charity:

Joe Canavan, a great supporter of Grapes for Humanity, invited eleven of his friends to join him at Barberian's Steak House on Elm Street, Toronto, for this fund-raiser dinner. The celebrity guests were Geddy Lee and Alex Liveson of Rush who regaled the company with stories of their touring and recording. The wine flowed ... like wine and Barberian's owner, Arron Barberian pledged $2,000 to the cause: the construction of a new home for street kids in Moshi, Tanzania. ...

Grapes for Humanity is an organization that helps to raise funds to benefit humanitarian causes around the world with the assistance of the international wine community, and Geddy Lee is a member of the board of directors. In recent years he and Alex Lifeson have conducted a number of charity auctions and events to raise money for the organization as part of an initiative that they cleverly call Grapes Under Pressure. Thanks to John at Cygnus-X1.net for the heads up.
