Styx and Tourmates Raise Over $100K For Boston Bombing Victims

07/10/2013
.
Styx announced that they and their tourmates REO Speedwagon and Ted Nugent raised $108,000 for the victims of the Boston marathon bombings during their recent tour.

The Midwest Rock 'N Roll Express tour raised money by offering fans a chance to purchase a silent raffle ticket to win a guitar signed by all three acts.

The fundraiser was setup by Styx's non-profit charity Rock to the Rescue and 25% of the proceeds went to local charities while 75% will be going to the Boston One Fund, which benefits the victims of the Boston marathon bombings.

Styx had this to say about the results, "Like all Americans, we have watched the events in Boston and wondered what we could do to help. We know the fans of all three bands will once again rise with us to help our friends in Boston. We Are Boston!"

REO Speedwagon add, "We feel such sadness for those innocent people in Boston who have suffered so much and are still suffering now. We think of those victims of senseless violence as we sign the guitar which is to be donated on their behalf each night. In our small way, we do what we do."

Ted Nugent offered these thoughts, "The Nugent band and family are surrounded by Americans who care deeply about each other and are dedicated to give all we got in times of need. We again face a tragedy that we can all help with, and are proud of this charitable heart and soul effort."

Styx originally founded Rock to the Rescue in 2002 as an effort to provide support to families of 9/11 victims. You can find more details about the organization here.
