SUNSET STATION TO HOST ST. BALDRICK’S FUNDRAISING EVENT WITH SIN CITY SINNERS AND KOMP 92.3
LAS VEGAS – Club Madrid at Sunset Station will host a signature St. Baldrick’s head-shaving event, which benefits pediatric cancer research, on Friday, March 16 at 9 p.m., and the public is invited. Among the volunteers for head shaving: Sin City Sinners, who perform at Sunset Station’s Club Madrid every Friday night at 10 p.m. and “Big Mex” from KOMP 92.3. The event holds personal significance to “Big Mex,” who is a father of three, and Brent Muscat from Sin City Sinners who is both a parent and cancer survivor.
Before the concert, featuring self-penned originals and rock and roll covers from Sin City Sinners, the clippers will come out! Brent Muscat from the group, who is known for his many years on the music scene as founding guitarist for Hollywood legends Faster Pussycat in addition to his time with Sin City Sinners, will have his iconic long hair shaved. Team members of Sunset Station also losing their locks include Slot Manager Will Provance and Casino Host Mervin Siquia, a parent expecting his second child whose cousin lost a son to Leukemia. This is in addition to members from the KOMP 92.3 “Big Mex” team. Celebrities who will be on hand for the event include Carlos Cavazo of Quiet Riot and Eric Dover of Slash's Snakepit and Alice Cooper.
As of the release date, more than $6,100 has been raised for the event. More donations are expected to come from both the community and a fundraising auction at Club Madrid, held by “Big Mex,” on March 9 at 10 p.m.
Worldwide, more than 160,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year, and it remains the leading cause of death by disease among children in the United States. With only 4 percent of all federal cancer research funding dedicated to pediatric cancer research, St. Baldrick’s Foundation grant funds are critical to continue the battle against this devastating disease.
All ages are welcome at the event and show, tickets are not needed and admission is free. However, space is limited, so an early arrival is suggested.
