To Benefit Petra Haden is a double 7"-vinyl by Vegas Records, released to benefit musician Petra Haden, who accrued substantial medical bills following a hit-and-run accident in 2003. The release features a live recording of "Why Bother?" by Weezer as well as the previously unreleased song "Becoming You" by Kevin Ridel's band AM Radio, in addition to recordings by Phantom Planet, and Ben Kweller. Its cover artwork was done by Andrew Bargeron, who is credited with illustration work for numerous Weezer-related releases from the early 2000s. The records were printed in a large variety of colors, meaning most copies of the release are unique.
