SideOneDummy's Joe Sib has announced the fourth holiiday charity event to benefit Wheels for Humanity. The group refurbishes donated wheelchairs and hand fits them to children and adults with disabilities in developing nations. The bill will feature NOFX, Wax, Dead To Me and Nathen Maxwell of Flogging Molly.
Last year, the benefit concert at The Key Club in Hollywood, CA raised $38,000. Combined Rock To Roll fund raising efforts have raised over $87,000 since the annual event began in 2006. The average wheelchair costs $150 to refurbish, which means Rock to Roll has directly improved the lives of roughly 580 individuals in need. This is the first year the event will take place in San Francisco. Tickets go on sale Saturday, November 7 via Slims.
