This holiday season, legendary classic rock band George Thorogood and the Destroyers are spreading the love through their "Who Do You Love” holiday campaign. The campaign, running from November 25TH to January 5TH, aims to raise awareness and support for three impactful charities.
Our opening act is Musically Fed, a nonprofit working nationally with artists and producers in the music and live entertainment industries to help feed veterans, seniors, and families facing food insecurity by reducing catering and food waste. We love Musically Fed because they leave a lasting and positive impact on communities by treating everyone with dignity and feeding the least fortunate among us. They’ll be featured from November 25TH through December 8TH.
From December 9TH through December 22ND, the second leg of the campaign will focus on Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, an organization committed to providing financial assistance to musicians facing illness, disability, or age-related problems. Fans are urged to lend their support to ensure that the music never stops for those who bring joy to our lives.
Concluding the campaign, George Thorogood and the Destroyers shine a light on The Marla Thorogood Memorial Fund for Ovarian Cancer Research from December 23RD through January 5TH. This fund, in memory of George's late wife, aims to advance research and awareness surrounding ovarian cancer and fans are encouraged to contribute to this vital cause and honor Marla's legacy. Proceeds from the Marla Thorogood Memorial Fund will go toward the research of Ronald D. Alvarez, MD, MBA, Chairman and Clinical Service Chief and Betty and Lonnie S. Burnett Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Part of Alvarez’s work studies gene mutations that put women at risk for ovarian and breast cancer and identifies those at risk to prevent cases.
George and Marla Thorogood were married in July of 1985. At the time of Marla’s passing, they had been married 34 years and have one daughter, Rio, who has performed with her father and is an accomplished musician and actor in her own right.
This holiday season, let's come together and show love to those in need. Each charity holds a special place in our hearts, and we hope our fans will join us in supporting these incredible causes.
Fans can get involved by engaging with the band's official social media channels to raise awareness and contribute to the featured charities. George Thorogood and the Destroyers believe in the power of music to make a positive impact and invite their fans to join them in spreading love and support this holiday season.
