Elton signed an ebony grand piano backstage at the Resch Center the day of his performance on May 30, 2003, and the piano will be auctioned to raise money for the Brian LaViolette Scholarship Foundation.
The piano can be viewed at Henri's Music, 500 S. Military Ave., Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA, and the store will accept sealed bids for the piano. It will be up for auction at the Journey to the Stars Benefit on September 16, 2003, at Lambeau Field, where the final bids will be accepted.
Since its inception in 1992, the foundation has awarded more than 170 scholarships. Tickets to the fund-raiser - with keynote speaker Henry Winkler - can be purchased at 405-9927.
