Sideonedummy no dummy’s when it comes to charity…

We figured we drop some knowledge to show some of the others in the music community that did the right thing over the holidays and made some charity happen in their own ways. Sure it was over the holidays, but hey, think about it.  Charity should run year round.  Do your part!

Sideonedummy says: On Tuesday December 11 over 1,200 people attended the second annual ROCK TO ROLL charity concert at The Avalon in Hollywood, CA. Flogging Molly, The Bouncing Souls, Dead To Me, and Punk Rock Karaoke (featuring a guest list of singers including Jim Lindberg, Joey LaRocca, Jon Pebsworth, Nathan Maxwell, Jesse Malin, Johnette Napolitano, Angelo Moore, Mike McColgan and Matt Skiba) all performed. Between tickets sales, raffles and donations at the event, over $35,000 was raised for UCP Wheels For Humanity.

The UCP 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. UCP WFH began in 1996 and is a non-profit organization. Since its inception UPC WFH has helped over 30,000 people with disabilities in over 58 countries gain increased mobility and dignity. UCP WFH is located in North Hollywood where a small professional staff and a large volunteer workforce collect, refurbish and ship donated wheelchairs.
