Rock Star Bret Michaels’ Charity Chosen for the 62 Annual California RV Show
POMONA, California, October 15, 2014 –Life Rocks Foundation, started by musician, RV enthusiast and reality TV star Bret Michaels, will be the charity of choice for the 62nd annual California RV Show to be held at the Fairplex in Pomona, Calif. from Oct. 10 through Oct 19.
The show’s sponsor, the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA), selected Life Rocks because of Michaels’ dedication to helping those with diabetes and other illnesses. Michaels is a life-long diabetic and has become an inspiration to children and adults who suffer from the disease. The RVIA will donate one day’s gate proceeds to the charity.
Over the last several years, Michaels and the Life Rocks Foundation have sent many diabetic kids to camps to help them learn how to manage their diabetes, as well as show them that there are other kids just like them. The charity supports a variety of other organizations that range from childhood cancer to military support and pet charities.
Michaels will be attending this year’s show on Saturday, Oct. 18 to meet and greet fans and sign autographs. In addition, a silent auction for several of his items, such as bandanas and albums, will be autographed by him and the proceeds will benefit the Foundation. The auction begins Oct. 10 and ends at the close of the show on Oct. 19. Items will be shipped to the highest bidders if they are not present.
The 10-day, 62nd Annual California RV Show will feature more than 1,200 RVs, 35 manufacturers, and 15 dealers, plus six celebrities, food and educational seminars, including the informative RV factory showcase. The show provides a free trolley and also offers mobility scooters, wheelchairs and kids wagons for rent at the entrance.
