On December 16, Music Drives Us took on round two of an incredibly charitable weekend!
The Dropkick Murphys’ Christmas Party was at Plainridge Park Casino and it was a big hit! The party featured an excellent performance by the Dropkick Murphys, followed by a boxing fight in the downstairs racing room.
The much anticipated fight highlighted the talents of Mark DeLuca, who won the fight! He achieved the amazing record of 20-0 and won the WBA Super Welterweight North American title (NABA) and the IBA World Title. Niall Kennedy co-headlined the night of boxing and reached a record of 10-0 and won the IBA America title. Big congrats to Mark and Niall!
We would like to extend a huge thank you to the Dropkick Murphys for generously supporting Music Drives Us alongside their charity, the Claddagh Fund, with the proceeds of the night. Also a big thank you goes out to all who attended the party! We truly appreciate your support of our mission of keeping music in our schools.
On December 15, Music Drives Us was lucky enough to host An Evening with Joe Perry! The legendary Rock & Roll Hall of Famer performed a charity concert to benefit Music Drives Us right here in our hometown of Norwood, MA.
This fundraiser was a rare and intimate experience held in Ernie Boch Jr’s hangar in Norwood Airport. It was an incredible night filled with crowd favorites and some tunes to get everyone in the Christmas spirit. For those who were not able to make it: check out our Facebook page for the video we broadcasted live!
We would like to thank everyone who came out for this rockin’ event! All of the proceeds from these great events and fundraisers benefit Music Drives Us and our mission of keeping music in our local schools and communities!
