Great White Guitarist's Son To Receive Fire Anniversary Benefit Proceeds

(Classic Rock) The Station Fire Memorial Foundation, who refused to accept a charitable donation from Great White singer Jack Russell, will receive some of the money after all.

Last week Russell announced he'd perform an acoustic show to mark the 10th anniversary of the night club blaze which killed 100, including guitarist Ty Longley. But the foundation said they didn't want the money and all but suggested the event was a publicity stunt.

Now the singer, who parted ways with the rest of Great White last year, has revealed he'll send the proceeds to Longley's nine-year-old son. And young Acey, who never met his father, says he'll pass some of the money to the foundation.

The boy comments: "Thank you to Great White (the Jack one) for donating to my charity, BEATS Bringing Everyone A Tremendous Smile to help bring iTunes cards, drumsticks and Legos to children in hospitals, in memory of my father.

"I bring smiles to kids in two hospitals in Illinois. I also plan to give some of it to the Station Fire Memorial Foundation to help build a permanent site for all the angels, including my dad." more on this story
