Megadeth to Donate Show Proceeds to Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma

Megadeth to Donate Show Proceeds to Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma -

Megadeth are to donate proceeds from their July 16 Gigantour date at the OKC Zoo Amphitheatre in Oklahoma City to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.

"Many amazing bands have come forward to aid Oklahomans since the May tornadoes came and tore apart their homes and lives," says Dave Mustaine. "Now it's time for Heavy Metal to give to this community!"

In addition to the Gigantour donation the thrash elders along with many other local celebrities will take part in an All-Star softball game on July 15th at the ASA Hall of Fame Complex, with proceeds once again going towards the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.  

Established in 1980, the Regional Food Bank is the largest private hunger-relief organization in the state of Oklahoma. In Fiscal Year 2012, the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma distributed 42.2 million pounds of food and product through a network of nearly 1,000 partner agencies and schools throughout 53 central and western Oklahoma counties. The Regional Food Bank provides enough food to feed more than 90,000 people each week - nearly half of which are children."
