It seems that Jackson will take some time in Dallas to make a young fan’s dream come true! Check out the story below, sent in to us by Jason from Intent Movie!
Jackson Rathbone takes time to meet a fan in Texas
July 29, 2009 (Dallas, TX) - Jackson Rathbone, who
plays Jasper Hale in the blockbuster movie, Twilight,
is coming to Dallas. He’ll be in town for TwiCon,
the largest Twilight Convention in the country.
While he’s there, Rathbone is also taking time to
meet with a very dedicated fan.
Fourteen year-old Dorothy has loved Twilight since
the day she read the book. Then, after seeing the
movie, she was really hooked. Like many teenagers,
she dreams of meeting Robert Pattinson, falling in
love and living happily ever after. She didn’t get
quite that lucky but when Jackson Rathbone and his
band, 100 Monkeys, heard her story they invited her
to join them this weekend at their concert in Dallas,
Due to terminal cancer, Dorothy hasn’t been able to
do much lately but one of her childhood dreams came
true last week. She and her family were given a
vacation of a lifetime at Disney World in Orlando.
They get back this Friday just in time for the
concert. They’re getting tickets to the show and
backstage passes to meet the band this Saturday at
The Palladium. “We’re all very lucky people and
helping others makes us who we are,” said Rathbone.
100 Monkeys recently completed a two-month, East
Coast tour, with every show sold out. The band has
been featured on MTV, VH1, Entertainment Tonight and
in People Magazine. The thing that makes the band so
unique is that each member can play every instrument.
In between songs, one of them yells ‘switcharoo’ and
they all switch instruments. “It’s great to see
musicians that can play six or seven different
instruments without missing a beat. We’ve booked
them at venues all over the country and they never
fail to amaze us,” said Tim Crockett of New Castle
The all ages concert at The Palladium promises to be
their biggest event ever. The band is also releasing
a new, live CD this weekend and everyone who attends
the show gets a free copy of the CD. Tickets are
only $19.99 and are available at TicketMaster.com.
After the concert on Saturday, 100 Monkeys are
hosting a party at Sambuca to benefit the Spencer
Bell Legacy Project. Spencer was a dear high school
friend of the band who died of adrenal cancer in
December of 2006. For more information about the
