North American event to take place in 20 stores.

On Jan. 20, Virgin Entertainment Group's Virgin Megastores will host 100 Acts of Support: The Concerts for Tsunami Relief. The retail chain's goal is to feature at least five acts in each of its 20 North American locations.

The events are free, but attendees can purchase a bracelet in support of the event. There will be donation boxes at each location, and an auction will take place. Proceeds from all will go to the Music for Relief Fund.

"We felt there was a great opportunity to pull together the artist community, our Virgin staff and our customers in one, cohesive effort for tsunami relief," says Dave Alder, VEG North America chief marketing officer.

If interested in booking an act for the event, please email tsunamirelief@virginmega.com.
