Chris Dale, bass player who was a member of Bruce Dickinson’s band in mid-1990s, has organized raffle for the original poster from the 1994 Dickinson’s concert in Sarajevo.
Dale announced the raffle on his Facebook profile, saying that all proceeds will go to charity.
“Jasenko Pasic, the driving force behind the ‘Scream for me, Sarajevo’ film, asked if we can give proceeds to a Bosnian charity called Pomozi.ba, or simply ‘Help’ in Bosnian. They work by distributing food and aid to needy people in Bosnia and Sarajevo. They do amazing work helping the neediest, often children and the elderly in underprivileged areas”, Dale wrote.
“The problem then becomes that the more tickets that are sold the lower the chances of each individual ticket winning. To offset that for every 25 tickets sold, I’ll throw in another poster. For example, if we sell 75 tickets, three winners will be drawn and get posters. I’ll probably have to set a limit of five posters done like that, in case things go too crazy again. The winning tickets will be drawn at random by my young assistant Archie on YouTube for all to see in a week’s time on Wednesday, January 29. Who knows, we might even throw in a couple of bonus prizes for runners up because we're too nice like that. Happy hunting!” Dale concluded.
Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson and his band performed in the Bosnian Cultural Center in Sarajevo on December 14, 1994. The concert and the background of the event were described in the ‘Scream for me, Sarajevo’, documentary movie which is considered one of the most important testimonies about the life in besieged Sarajevo.
‘Scream for me, Sarajevo’ was screened at more than 20 festivals worldwide, as well as in 150 theaters in the UK and more than 500 theaters throughout the world.
The movie, which premiered at the 22nd Sarajevo Film Festival in 2016, won ten awards and numerous other recognitions, including the ‘Movie of the Week’ award of the European Documentary Network.
