Through partnership with local organizations ASSV uses concerts to both support performers and to benefit local groups connected to the arts, social causes or other charities. ASSV covers the cost of the artist. The partner organization provides a venue if possible and handles ticketing. ASSV, the partner organization and the performer all collaborate on advertising. All ticket proceeds go to the partner organization. In this way the performer gets exposure at a paid presentation and the benefiting organization has a fund raiser..
ASSV presents the Annual Phil Ochs' Award given to an individual or group whose activities carry on the spirit of Phil Ochs' music and activism. For information or to suggest possible recipients please email us at email@example.com.
