Earlier this year, Howard Perl, CEO of Howard Perl Productions, brought rock icon Chubby Checker to town for Rock & Roll to the Rescue, a benefit concert at Hard Rock Live. He’s just announced that classic rocker Eddie Money will headline Rock & Roll to the Rescue (Part 2). The benefit takes place on Sunday, Nov. 8, at Hard Rock Live. The event will benefit Geauga Humane Society’s Rescue Village and is the first Rocksino appearance for Money, a guy who regularly plays Cleveland and often talks about how much he loves Northeast Ohio, one of the first regions in the country to embrace his music.
“Rock & Roll to the Rescue is unlike any other fundraiser in town,” says Perl in a press release. “We produce Vegas-style shows to put the fun back in fundraising. Part 2 will be a unique extension of the gala back in January and will have the same goal — to raise much needed funds for the homeless dogs, cats, horses, and other animals at Rescue Village.”
The fundraising portion of the evening begins at 6 p.m. Tickets starting at $25 are available at the Rocksino box office or through Ticketmaster. Rescue Village, the beneficiary of the evening, also offers VIP passes in exchange for donations online at rescueconcert.com
