The tribute benefits the Damon Intrabartolo Fund, aiding those facing the challenges of addiction and mental health issues. The money raised will be donated for Crystal Meth Recovery and Mental Health Services through the Gay and Lesbian Center in the city of Los Angles, where Damon lived in for 15 years.
