NEW YORK, Dec. 13, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The producers of "12-12-12," which
is presented by Chase, announced today that the concert at Madison Square
Garden (Nasdaq:MSG) on December 12, 2012 at 7:30 PM (ET) to aid the victims of
Hurricane Sandy, has united with a number of partners to secure donations and
services to support the event's production, execution and live broadcasts.
Because of the generous support of these partners and sponsors, and Robin
Hood's board of directors, every single penny from ticket purchases and
donations will go to organizations serving the victims of Hurricane Sandy
through the Robin Hood Relief Fund.

GE has been named the first and only Diamond Partner for "12-12-12";
BlackRock, Samsung and State Farm serve as the leading Platinum Partners with
Optimum, Time Warner Cable and Verizon Foundation now on board as Gold
Partners; Delta and Poland Spring have joined as Silver Partners; and Duracell
Powermat, Hyundai, NRG and Pepsi as Bronze Partners. In addition, the
production and execution of "12-12-12" would not be possible without the
generous donations from many production companies including Dempsey
Productions; Diversified Production Services (DPS); and Otto Printing &
Entertainment Graphics.

Event producers James Dolan, John Sykes and Harvey Weinstein issued the
following joint statement: "The outpouring of support from our generous
partners has enabled us to put together an unprecedented, worldwide event that
will help drive fundraising efforts to support the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
We can't thank them enough."

Social media services are being donated by HD MADE, which is also providing
digital strategy and design services. In-kind development and hosting services
are being donated by Phase2 Technology, and the soon-to-launch live
entertainment service, Mahaya, will host a post-show recap. In addition,
iStreamPlanet will provide live video encoding for the 12-12-12 Concert which
will stream live across leading entertainment and video sites.

"12-12-12" will be distributed worldwide to nearly two billion people through
television feeds, radio and online streaming and will be distributed across
networks and feeds in North and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and
Australia.

The concert is being produced by James Dolan, Executive Chairman of The
Madison Square Garden Company; John Sykes, President of Clear Channel
Entertainment Enterprises; and Harvey Weinstein, Co-Founder and Chairman of
The Weinstein Company.

The all-star lineup features performances by Bon Jovi, Eric Clapton, Dave
