The Black Keys—Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney—recently announced that they’ve re-upped their partnership with nonprofit Save The Music and the digital marketing platform Propeller. Together, the musical pair and their partners helped raise thousands of dollars for music education programs in Mississippi. This year, The Black Keys is helping Save The Music reach even more schools and their education programs all across Mississippi.

The rock group is offering prizes to fans who donate and support Save The Music. A donation to the nonprofit through The Black Keys giveaway will give fans a chance to win prizes like VIP soundcheck passes for the band’s upcoming Dropout Boogie Tour.
