According to CBS Denver, help continues to pour in to help the families of the 12 people killed in the Aurora theater shooting and all those that were hurt. That includes a big rock concert planned this weekend organized by MÖTLEY CRÜE front man Vince Neil’s son and his daughter-in-law, the Whartons, who live in Colorado, and like most everyone, they were so saddened by the Aurora theater shooting. Especially since it was personal. One of the victims in the shooting was Rebecca Wingo, a friend Marie Wharton knew well.
“She was a single mom, she has two beautiful little girls, five and nine,” Marie Wharton said.
So the rock-n-roll family wanted to do something.
“You feel helpless in that you just want to help, and you don’t know how to, and this is the way he and I both came up with how to help these people,” Marie said.
Neil's band ROCK-AND-ROLL JUNKIES will make its Colorado debut and play along with seven other local bands.
“Every penny that we raise, everything that we make goes directly to the victims’ families and that’s the least that we could do,” Neil said.
They’re calling the event Rockfest for Aurora.
