Twisted Sister Presents Check to Autism Speaks
Today, members of the rock group Twisted Sister, presented a check for more than $17,000 to Autism Speaks, at the VH1 Classic headquarters in New York City. The check represents a portion of the proceeds from “Twisted Christmas”, a holiday CD that benefited Cure Autism Now. The initiative was a part of VH1 Classic’s Rock Autismcampaign, created to spread awareness and raise funds. Razor & Tie and VH1 Classic Records partnered with Twisted Sister to guarantee a portion of the album’s proceeds would benefit CAN.
TWISTED SISTER took part in an interview and performed live on the nationally syndicated radio show “Rockline”, hosted by Bob Coburn, on Wednesday, December 12. The program is now available for streaming at this location.
As previously reported, TWISTED SISTER will perform hard rock versions of their favorite holiday music on Sirius Satellite Radio’s “Twisted Christmas” on the Hair Nation (channel 23). The performance will be broadcast live from Sirius’ Rockefeller Center Plaza studios in New York City on Monday, December 17 at 3:00 p.m. ET.
