UPDATE - 8/24@8:34AM: The auction is underway.

Back in 2014 a few diehard Rush fans who were inspired by Rush's many charitable donations over the years, put together the 501(c)3 charitable organization Overtime Angels with the goal of helping individuals in need that might not be able to receive help from large charitable organizations. The organization will be hosting their second annual RushCamp! event/fundraiser this coming Labor Day weekend at Independent Lake Camp in the northern tip of the Pocono Mountains near Scranton, PA. The camp will run over Labor Day weekend from Aug 30 to Sep 2, 2018, and feature music from Brandon Dyke, David Barrett, and Rush tribute bands Permanent Waves and Mystic Rhythms; an appearance via Skype by Donna Halper; and much more. Earlier today they announced that their silent auction would include some rare photographs of the band by photographer Craig M. Renwick, signed by ALL THREE members of the band. The auction will also have an online component that begins next Monday, August 20th, with more details forthcoming. Overtime Angels' Jim Brunke explains the story of how they obtained these photos and the band's signatures, along with all the auction details in this video. Overtime Angels are also currently running a fundraising charity raffle to complement the event, with "glittering prizes" including a Tama Superstar Drum Set, a signed David Barrett album or a special US $100 bill. For all the details and to purchase your raffle tickets visit this location. Details and ticket information for RushCamp! 2018 is available at overtimeangels.org.
