From Business Wire by way of Audrey Jones:
What:
Joey Harrington of the Detroit Lions, along with John Popper and Chan Kinchla of Blues Traveler, will sign autographs for fans at the Best Buy store in Clackamas, Ore. on Tuesday, June 24.

The event will preview a benefit concert put on by the Harrington Family Foundation, "An Acoustic Night of Music," featuring Jason Mraz with special guests Popper and Kinchla. The benefit concert, sponsored by Best Buy, will take place on Thursday, June 26 at 7:30 p.m. at the Crystal Ballroom. Proceeds will benefit the Shriners Hospitals for Children Portland.

Portland native and University of Oregon alum, Joey Harrington was the first Lion's rookie quarterback to throw for over 300 yards with a 309-yard passing effort against the Minnesota Vikings. Harrington is also an accomplished pianist and will be performing in a closing jam session for the concert.

Blues Traveler helped lead the early-'90s renaissance of blues rock. Their 1994 album, four, went multi-platinum and featured two hit singles, "Hook" and "Run-Around."
