The one-day charity-focused event takes place Sept. 28 on Central Park's Great Lawn and will provide free tickets to those who earn points by taking action through service.

Fans can earn a chance at one of approximately 27,000 pairs of tickets by sharing articles, videos and infographics about core issues and signing petitions and sending emails to leaders, among other acts.
