ZAKK WYLDE MAKES RHODE ISLAND IN-STORE APPEARANCE TO BENEFIT VICTIMS OF THE STATION NIGHTCLUB FIRE

WARWICK, R.I. - Daddy’s Junky Music in Warwick, R.I., and WHJY will host an in-store appearance by guitarist Zakk Wylde on Wednesday, August 13, at which the winner of a charity raffle to benefit the victims of The Station Nightclub fire will be announced.

The winner of the raffle will receive an autographed Zakk Wylde Epiphone "Bullseye" guitar, the entire Zakk Wylde/Black Label Society music catalogue, and other Black Label Society merchandise.

All 20 Daddy's retail locations have been selling raffle tickets to help raise funds for the victims of the Station Nightclub fire in W. Warwick, R.I. Wylde, Daddy's Promotions Director Candi Bramante, and Daddy's Vice President Bobby Baker will present a check in the amount of $5,000 to Joe Bevilacqua, WHJY Program Director, and Paul Fuller, President of The Doc Fund, a charity established in the name of Michael "The Doctor" Gonsalves, a DJ at WHJY who perished in the fire. The Doc Fund gives 100 percent of all money collected to two charities - one that gives assistance directly to the survivors and families of the victims of the fire and the other a scholarship set up in Doc's name at his alma mater, Rhode Island College.

"As the rest of the country did, we at Daddy's felt great sadness after the tragic fire at The Station Nightclub, not just as fellow members of the music community, but because many that perished that night were customers of our Warwick, R.I., store which is located about one half mile from the nightclub,” said Bramante. “We had a meeting at Daddy's after the fire to try come up with a way to help those victims and their families and it occurred to me that our relationship with Zakk Wylde actually began at The Station Nightclub six years earlier when I met him at one of his shows there. So, with that, I called and asked him to help us raise some funds for the victims and he so kindly and without hesitation responded by giving us a "Bullseye" guitar, a copy of his entire music catalogue and some BLS shirts to raffle off. Zakk is truly family to us here at Daddy's and we just can't thank him enough for helping us."

“We are so grateful to Zakk Wylde and Daddy's Junky Music for their generous donation of $5,000,” said Fuller. “There are dozens and dozens of kids who lost a parent in the tragedy and the financial need for the survivors will continue for years. Doc was a huge fan of Zakk's and this donation is a great memorial!”

Wylde will greet fans and sign autographs for approximately two hours, beginning at 4 p.m.

Daddy's Junky Music is located at 1400 Bald Hill Road in Warwick, R.I. Call (401) 823-3239 for any additional information. There is no admission charge, but a donation to The Doc Fund is requested.
