Billy Idol, Duff McKagan and Dave Navarro Lead All-Star ‘Rhonda’s Kiss’ Cancer Benefit Concert
Founded in 2014, Rhonda's Kiss was established in honor of Rhonda Stefanski, whose battle with terminal pancreatic cancer inspired her parents to help patients who aren't able to cover their medical costs. Noting thankfully that Stefanski "was fortunate that her family had the resources to get her the necessary treatments, see the finest doctors and be treated in the best facilities," a press release announcing the event shares the family's hopes of raising funds for "those in the inner city who receive a cancer diagnosis but may be unable to make ends meet for treatment and support."
To that end, an all-star pickup band dubbed the Hellcat Saints — featuring Idol, Navarro, McKagan, Clarke and Freese, as well as Kesha, Mark McGrath, Dave Kushner and Juliette Lewis — will take the stage Nov. 3 at the El Rey Theatre in Hollywood with comedian Bill Burr also on hand to act as emcee for the evening.
General admission tickets for the Rhonda's Kiss benefit are $75, with VIP passes available for $250 and a special VIP package priced at $1,000. For more details about the foundation or to purchase tickets for the show, visit the Rhonda's Kiss website.
