The Wish List Foundation, a Pearl Jam nonprofit fan club that hosts events before every one of the band's concerts and lead singer Eddie Vedder's solo shows, is doing a pre-party fundraiser/raffle/auction at Sticky Fingerz on Saturday before the "Voices for Justice Rally" at Robinson. It runs from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The big ticket items are two guitars, provided by 100.3 The Edge and signed by Buckcherry and Finger Eleven, respectively. Raffle tickets to win those will be $5.

Other items to be auctioned or raffled: vintage Pearl Jam posters, t-shirts, vinyl records (including annual fan club 45s) and other odds and ends (like homemade preserves). All proceeds will go to Arkansas Take Action. And Holly Ballard, from the advocacy nonprofit, will be on hand to speak about the WM3 and provide literature and bumper stickers and such.
