"MusiCares MAP Fund is an amazing program that takes care of their own, and actually saves lives.”
——Chester Bennington

MUSICARES HONORS CHESTER BENNINGTON, TONY ALVA

Linkin Park Singer, Skateboard Legend Singled Out for Addiction-Recovery Efforts
The ninth annual MusiCares MAP Fund benefit concert will honor Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington and Tony Alva, surfer, musician and original member of the skateboarding team Dogtown Z-Boys. The event will be held May 30 at Club Nokia.

Bennington will be honored with the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award for his dedication and support of the MusiCares MAP Fund, and for his commitment to helping other addicts with the addiction-recovery process. Alva will be the recipient of MusiCares' From the Heart Award for his unconditional friendship and dedication to the mission and goals of the organization. All proceeds will benefit the MusiCares MAP Fund, which provides members of the music community access to addiction recovery treatment regardless of their financial situation.

Said Neil Portnow (who needs no introduction): "Chester and Tony are passionate and highly influential artists in their respective professions and each of them has achieved impressive and much-deserved success. What unites them around the mission of MusiCares is their willingness to lend their time and talents to raise funds for our organization, and their desire to be of service to music people struggling with addiction. We truly appreciate their steadfast support and committed generosity."

Commented Bennington: "MusiCares MAP Fund is an amazing program that takes care of their own, and actually saves lives. It's been so rewarding to support them and see firsthand what they've accomplished for so many artists."

Added Alva: "Skateboarding, business and music have brought me enormous satisfaction over the years.It doesn't compare, though, with the power of being sober, which I am grateful for every day of my life, and that's why I wanted to join MusiCares to help raise funds, so more people can get the help they need."
