LAYN Rocks: Slash and friends support LA homeless youth

We love it when our customer rock their events and no one is rocking harder this weekend than LAYN Rocks, a benefit concert featuring Slash, Ozzy Osbourne, Perry Ferrell, Tom Morello, Billy Idol, and many more to raise money and awareness for the LA Youth Network. The concert will be hosted by George Lopez and will be a once-in-a-lifetime rock experience.

Started in 1985, this youth homeless network has focused on serving the 10,000 homeless children in Los Angeles through a group of shelters and programs to get them off the street. By the end of the program these kids leave with a job, an education, and a brighter future.

This non-profit has been doing amazing work addressing the issues of homeless children right here at home, but has been hit hard by drastic reductions in state funding and the economic climate. Their situation has become more and more perilous as they struggle to keep their doors open. Slash and his wife, Perla, who play an active role in the organization, felt that they had to step up and do something. So Slash gathered a group of his rock legend friends to put on an epic rock concert to raise money for the LA Youth Network.

Normally rock concerts are planned months or even years in advance by professional promoters and industry veterans, but this show was brought together in a few short weeks by the dedicated people at LAYN and Slash himself. It is taking place at the Avalon in Hollywood since it is located near the youth shelter and LAYN wanted the kids to be able to participate in the concert.

They have created the ultimate VIP experience, which starts 2 hours prior to the show and includes a full dinner and drinks, a silent and live auction, and private 30 minute set by George Lopez. VIPs will get a chance to mingle with all the rock stars and then watch the concert from a private VIP seating area. After the show VIPs are guaranteed a ticket to the after-party which will include a DJ, open bar, special gift bag, and a chance to hang out with all the celebrities and musicians.
