The 3rd Annual RIDE FOR RONNIE Details:
The third annual RIDE FOR RONNIE Motorcycle Rally and Concert, benefiting the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund on Sunday, May 7, 2017 will be highlighted by a host of celebrity riders joining the Motorcycle Ride through the streets of Los Angeles County. In addition, an all-star jam will be spearheaded by Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler-‘Steven Adler and Friends’-during the afternoon of live music in Los Encinos Park. Last year’s RIDE FOR RONNIE event raised over $50,000 for the cancer charity.
Celebrity riders expected to join Dio Cancer Fund co-founder and president Wendy Dio and the cavalcade of motorcycle riders include Sons of Anarchy actors Emilio Rivera (and also from the forthcoming series Mayans MC), Sean McNabb (who will also perform with Lynch Mob at the concert), Rusty Coones and Star Fields, as well as actor Chris Bruno (The Dead Zone) and musicians Lita Ford, Gilby Clarke (former Guns N’ Roses guitarist), Taime Downe (Faster Pussycat) and Xavier Muriel (Buckcherry) along with KLOS Radio “Horns Up” show personality Stew Herrera. They will assemble at Harley-Davidson of Glendale with kickstands up at 11AM.
The afternoon of live music following the RIDE will be highlighted by “Steven Adler and Friends” in an all-star jam organized by the Guns N’ Roses drummer. He will be joined by Mike Devin (Whitesnake), Lita Ford, Robert Sarzo (Hurricane), Alex Grossi (Quiet Riot), Patrick Stone (Budderside) and Jeff Pilson (Foreigner and former Dio guitarist), playing Guns N’ Roses hits.
Additionally, Rough Cutt will conclude its set with a performance of “Stars,” the iconic song released in 1986 by the organization known as Hear ‘N Aid to raise money for famine relief in Africa. Heavy metal’s answer to “We Are The World” raised $2 million at the time, and there are plans being made to re-issue the recording in the future to benefit the Dio Cancer Fund.
Radio personality Eddie Trunk (http://eddietrunk.com/ ) will handle hosting duties, which will also include a raffle, silent and live auctions, food trucks, merchandise vendors and more. The silent auction will be held in one of the exhibit booths throughout the afternoon, while live auctions, featuring one-of-a-kind rock collectables, will take place during intervals between artist performances. Live Auction, raffle and silent auction items include a stage-worn full-length leather Eddie Money trench coat from his 2000 “Millennium Tour,” a Great White acoustic guitar signed by the band members, Dio photo book signed by all of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, a Black Sabbath collectables and merchandise bundle, a variety of concert tickets, wine-tasting certificates, and much, much more.
Los Angeles’ premier rock radio station, 95.5 KLOS, has come on board this year as an event sponsor and will be out in force at Harley Davidson in Glendale for the start of the RIDE. KLOS jock Melissa Maxx will be at the park to assist with the festivities.
A donation of $25,000 will be presented to Dr. David Wong of the UCLA School of Dentistry to help fund his team’s research into the development of a simple, non-invasive saliva test for the early detection of cancer. This is part of the Dio Cancer Fund’s commitment to this ground-breaking project, which is in keeping with its message that early detection saves lives.
