A legion of punk rock and heavy metal legends have banded together in order to raise much needed funds for Mark Ruffino’s liver transplant. The guitarist of seminal punk rock band China White has been in and out of hospital awaiting said transplant for the past year. Kevin Lyman, founder of the Vans Warped Tour, has put together the Unite The United Foundation in order to raise the costs for the transplant and autographed memorabilia has been donated from bands such as Rancid, TSOL, Adolescents, Black Flag and Slayer amongst others to go on sale on April 20th.
There will also be a benefit show and two auction item viewing parties ahead of the auction date. On Saturday March 30th, China White will be playing with special guests at The Observatory in Santa Ana CA. On Sunday April 14th, the first auction party will be taking place at The Los Angeles Punk Museum in Los Angeles and on Sunday April 20th, the second auction party will be taking place at The 2nd Floor Food, Art, Drinks in Huntingdon Beach, CA.
