Rock to the Rescue is
a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, whose mission is to build strong,
healthy communities through the support of grassroots organizations
across the country. Rock to the Rescue originally started in 2001
as a result of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and is the brainchild
of STYX’s Tommy Shaw and REO SPEEDWAGON’s Kevin Cronin.
The two musicians brought together bands and artists such as Bad
Company, Journey, Survivor, Kansas, Lynyrd Skynyrd and many others
to be part of “Volunteers For America” concert events
in Dallas and Atlanta that ultimately raised over $775,000 for victims
of 9/11, as well as the Port Authority police department in New
York City. On the bands’ last tour together, the Midwest Rock
N' Roll Express, Rock to the Rescue not only raised thousands of
dollars for local charities at each tour stop, but also raised $108,000
which went directly to the Boston One Fund, helping victims of the
Boston Marathon bombings. For more information visit: www.rocktotherescue.net and www.facebook.com/rocktotherescue.

the Rescue can be made at www.rocktotherescue.net.
