In a continued effort to give back to the community, Global Spectrum, operators of the USF Sun Dome, is auctioning autographed musical instruments from some of the featured performers from recent concerts at the venue.

The latest item up for bid, a signed tambourine by The Lumineers at their concert at the USF Sun Dome on October 19th, has recently been posted for auction. Proceeds will benefit United Ways of Colorado Flood Recovery Fund as a way to help support those who have been greatly affected by the recent floods in the state.  With the band originating from Denver, Colorado, this cause hits close to home for its members. To place your bid, please visit:

“Global Spectrum at the USF Sun Dome and Global Spectrum Charities have maintained a strong focus on the importance of charitable initiatives and community involvement both locally and nationally/internationally,” says Global Spectrum’s Trent Merritt, General Manager at the USF Sun Dome. “We feel fortunate to be a part of the sports and entertainment industry and will continue to use that platform to benefit those who need it most.”

Global Spectrum recently raised $2,225 as the result of its first two auctions.

The first item up for bid was a beautiful red and white Fender Starcaster signed by Imagine Dragons at their concert at the USF Sun Dome on September 24th. The winning bid was $1,300 and will help benefit the Tyler Robinson Foundation, which was founded by the band. The Tyler Robinson Foundation is dedicated to providing financial assistance to families with children battling cancer.

Pete Wentz, Patrick Stump, Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley of Fall Out Boy autographed a gorgeous blue Ibanez guitar at their sold out concert on September 29th. The winning bid of $925 will help benefit Invisible Children, an organization that Fall Out Boy members have supported that focuses on ending the Lord’s Resistance Army conflict in Central Africa.

The USF Sun Dome and Global Spectrum Charities are excited to continue this initiative moving forward with its concerts as future auctions take place in an effort to reach out to the community on a local, national, and international scale.
