If you missed out on tickets to this year’s installment of Widespread Panic’s massively popular three-night New Year’s Eve stand at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre, two tickets for the Dec. 31 show are currently being auctioned on eBay, thanks to a donation from Panic bassist Dave Schools.

Proceeds from the auction will support scholarships to Double Helix, an Athens-based STEAM school that is “a designated ‘safe space’ learning environment” for local fourth through eighth-graders.

The auction is live until Sunday, Dec. 10 at 8 p.m., so head over to the listing and do the thing. Be prepared to spend big bucks: The current bid is over $1,000. Still, it’s for a good cause, and way better for your conscience than paying Ticketmaster service fees.
