Seva has been producing incredible benefit concerts for 35 years — starting in 1979, when the Grateful Dead played a concert in Oakland, CA, that raised $100,000.  Since then, dozens of artists have donated their time and talent to support Seva's work.  Millions of dollars have been raised, and thousands of new friends have become Seva supporters.
