The ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL is pleased to once again present initiatives with the amazing Metal of Honor charity program. Metal of Honor started in 2011 to raise awareness and financial support to a few key military non-profits while showing gratitude to our military men and women during the ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL tour. In conjunction with this year’sMetal of Honor activities, The Puppy Rescue Mission and Team Red White and Blue charities will have a presence at many of festival stops, and COLDCOCK Whiskey will also host special military meet and greets for veterans, and will provide guitars signed by Slayer for this year’s Hometown Heroes.
This year, Metal Of Honor will specifically highlight the very special Musicians Institute Steve Robinson Metal of Honor Veterans Scholarship (named after late veterans advocate and celebrated Metal of Honor team member Steve Robinson), and will focus donations towards OneMaps, The Pathway Home, and Hope for the Warriors. See the bottom of this release for more information on these charities.
