February 20th, 2013 marks the 10th anniversary of the tragic fire at the Station Night Club in Rhode Island. Jack Russell of the band GREAT WHITE recently announced that he will be doing an acoustic performance on February 7th at Saint Rocke in Hermosa Beach, CA, where proceeds will be donated to the Station Fire Memorial Foundation.
Russell has checekd in again with the following update:
"This morning my manager received an email from the Vice President of the Station Fire Memorial Foundation, stating that they will refuse any donations from me to the foundation:
'This is to respect the wishes of the families and survivors who do not wish to have any association with Jack or his Great White. We do not want our name associated with ANYTHING Jack Russell or his band does. We do not want any donations or proceeds from anything he does.'
That being said, the proceeds from the show on February 7 will be donated to a different charitable organization, to be determined shortly.
I am saddened by the response of the foundation and the motives behind it, but we will put on a great show and make it for a worthy cause."
Doors for the show open at 5:00pm, tickets are $15.00. Click here
