Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival and Avenged Sevenfold to Raise Funds In Memory of 9/11

The Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival and tour headliners Avenged Sevenfold are to raise funds for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation and the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund in connection with the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

The festival and Avenged Sevenfold will match dollar-for-dollar all donations, up to $10,000, that are made to The Rock 106.9 WCCC in Hartford, Connecticut, starting from today. Checks will then be presented to the two organizations during the Uproar Festival’s performance at the Comcast Theatre in Hartford, which takes place on September 11, 2011.

The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation and the National Law Enforcement Officers’ Memorial Fund work to preserve the memory of firefighters and police officers, respectively, and to aid their surviving loved ones in rebuilding their lives.

Donations can be made online at WCCC.com.
