Flogging Molly and Bouncing Souls set to Headline Charity Event in Hollywood December11, 2007

From Side One Dummy Records:

Los Angeles, October 19, 2007. The second annual ROCK TO ROLL charity event spearheaded by SideOneDummy Co-Founder Joe Sib is happening this year at the Avalon Theater in Hollywood, CA on December 11th. The event will directly benefit the non-profit organization WHEELS FOR HUMANITY. Headlining the event this year is FLOGGING MOLLY just back from recording their new album in Ireland. Also on the bill will be BOUNCING SOULS and DEAD TO ME. The night will kick off with a set from PUNK ROCK KARAOKE (featuring members of NOFX, Bad Religion, Adolescents & Social Distortion).

The WHEELS FOR HUMANITY mission is to provide increased self sufficiency and mobility to people with disabilities throughout the world, without regard to political affiliation, religious belief or ethnic identity. WFH began in 1996 and is a non-profit organization and has since helped over 30,000 people with disabilities in over 58 countries gain increased mobility and dignity. WFH is located in North Hollywood where a small professional staff and a large volunteer workforce collect, refurbish and ship donated wheelchairs.

Last year, Joe Sib's ROCK TO ROLL benefit concert at the Key Club rose over $27,000 for WFH. The average wheel chair costs $150 to refurbish, which means last year's event directly improved the lives of roughly 180 individuals in need. This year we've moved the event to the Avalon Theater in Hollywood and our goal is to double our fundraising efforts. TICKETS go on sale Friday Nov.9th
