SARATOGA (997NOW/CBSSF) – You can call Justin Bieber a lot of things, but selfish is not one of them! Thanks to Bieber’s intimate charity show for College Track at the Mountain Winery in Saratoga on Saturday night, lots of students are smiling. Not just the Justin Bieber fans who where there, but the 1,000 others who weren’t, but will still benefit from the show.
While some of Bieber’s Bay Area fans complained about the high prices of the concert (tickets went from $250.00- $1,500.00 each), one thing that will not be forgotten, is that this was all for charity. Justin Bieber will be back to the Bay Area, one day soon, but for one night – it was about thinking of others and helping students live their college dream.
The event was a complete success, to say the least! From the show’s proceeds and other funding, over 1,000 kids will get to go to college. Even with Bieber’s sick girlfriend, Selena Gomez, in the hospital, the show went on and Justin was in the best of moods.
Here’s what Justin Bieber Tweeted:
