I wish I was in California so I could support this great cause. Since I can't be there in person, I guess posting this release so the West Coast Glammers can go helps a little.
Since 2001, the annual Hollywood Crue Fest has been held to benefit the Skylar Neil Memorial Fund, a foundation established by Motley Crue front man Vince Neil to battle childhood illnesses.
On Saturday night, July 27th, the world famous Whisky-A-Go-Go rock club in West Hollywood, CA will host the annual Crue Fest, featuring a full day of entertainment with nine featured bands and dozens of music industry guest appearances on stage.
In honor of Motley Crue front man Vince Neil’s daughter Skylar, who passed away at the age of four from childhood cancer, fans from around the world have shown their support by arranging events to raise money toward cancer research and other childhood illnesses. Of the most notable has always been the annual Hollywood Crue Fest, which takes place on the same stage where Motley Crue found their rock and roll beginnings.

The 2013 edition of Crue Fest will be equally as spectacular as previous years.
