Philadelphia's mayor is donating his suite at Friday's sold-out Bruce Springsteen concert to a school district fundraising group.

The Fund for the School District of Philadelphia is offering Democratic Mayor Jim Kenney's suite tickets for $556 each on its website and says proceeds will support public education.

Springsteen is performing one night at the Wells Fargo Center as part of his tour showcasing his 1980 album "The River."

A mayoral spokeswoman says the suite has 18 seats. She says the mayor has a suite for all events at the center but doesn't plan to be there for the Springsteen concert. She says he also will donate the suite for shows by Carrie Underwood, The Who, Justin Bieber and Adele.

The 18 tickets normally are given to city staffers and other organizations.
