KISS Navy supports Wounded Warrior Project
Posted on 12/10/2012What started out as a few of us hanging out by the pool in Miami at the Holiday Inn before KKII, turned into something we never imagined. Shortly after Kiss Kruise II was announced my friend Andy Moyen called and said, Lets stay at the Holiday Inn, it is close to everything and a little less money. We posted on Facebook that we were going to be in Miami a few days early and we invited any Kiss fans to come hang out with us at the Holiday Inn. A few weeks went by and Andy noticed that a lot of people were coming into Miami early. Andy called me and said "Lets have a Living In Sin Party at the Holiday Inn." Andy then was able to get a discounted rate for rooms for the Kruisers coming in early and we sold the place out. Seeing the overwhelming amount of people coming in early, I called Andy and said " Lets take this one step further, lets have a Wounded Warrior Raffle." The work began, emails, texts, phone calls, getting all the donations we could. I contacted Adri Beccera about Andy and I doing our WWP Raffle at the KISS Kruiser party at the Hard Rock Café in Miami, and she thought that would be great. Andy set up KISS tribute band, Kissforever, to play in Marlboro MA at J.J. Sports Bar and collected donations. We also setup a Paypal account so that we could receive donations. We even put a special Living in Sin Tee shirt on Ebay that we had made. We want to thank: Bruce Kulick, Bill Baker, Lydia Criss, Lisa Jane Perskey, William R. Starky, www.kiss4sale, Kiss mini golf, Feedback Lounge, and the anonymous fans that donated. A special thanks to my wife Denise and Andy's mom Maureen. Without their help and support, we could not have done this. The Living in Sin party, as well as the Party at the Hard Rock were a great success. We had Kiss fans from all over the world, United States, Canada, Germany, Colombia South America, Scotland, England U.K., Norway, Switzerland, Netherlands, Australia, Spain Channel Islands, just to mention of few, buying raffle tickets to support the WWP, and we raised $6026.82!!! Thank you to Daniel Hauser of Greifensee, Zurich for filming us presenting the amount raised to KISS.............. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=WWK9UbKilws The Kiss ArmyNavy has proven that "We are one!"
