Florida’s SunSentinel has issued the following report from Mary Thurman Yuhas:
When IRON MAIDEN drummer Nicko McBrain isn’t on the road, he calls Boca Raton home. About eight years ago, through friends at a golf tournament, he was introduced to HomeSafe, a Lake Worth-based nonprofit that helps victims of child abuse and domestic violence.
“I fell in love with the whole organization,” McBrain said. “I had a wonderful childhood growing up in North London, and I think every child deserves to have caring people around them to nurture their abilities and help them go out and have a fulfilled life.”
McBrain hosted HomeSafe’s recent Classic Rock & Roll Party fundraiser at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood. About 375 people attended, and the event raised more than $340,000.
“We only hold two fundraisers a year, and this fundraiser is extremely unique,” said Matthew Ladika, HomeSafe’s CEO. “It’s a jam session and a rock party that breaks out into a fundraiser.”
