The Claddagh Fund, a charity started by Dropkick Murphys, has announced the availability of sold-out concert tickets, VIP passes and hotel accommodations for the Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival in Las Vegas, which Dropkick Murphys will headline May 28. These special packages are available only through the Claddagh Fund’s EventBrite page. The Claddagh Fund is also proud to announce the Dropkick Murphys official band meet and greet party scheduled from 4pm-6pm on Sunday, May 29, 2011 at The Brass Lounge, overlooking the Freemont Flightlinez in Las Vegas. Package and party information is available at PunkRockVegas.EventBrite.com.
The Dropkick Murphys meet and greet party will feature complimentary appetizers, as well as a raffle which includes prizes such as a zip line trip with Dropkick Murphys band members, signed DKM memorabilia, and autographed memorabilia from both Pawn Stars and Hell’s Kitchen, with more items being added daily. Celebrity guests confirmed to join Dropkick Murphys at the meet and greet include Corey “Big Hoss” Harrison of Pawn Stars and Jason Santos of Hell’s Kitchen. The Brass Lounge, located at 425 Freemont Street in Downtown Las Vegas directly overlooks Freemont Flightlinez, the popular Las Vegas zip line that sends riders through downtown Vegas 67 feet in the air under a canopy of lights. Freemont Flightlinez will generously donate all proceeds throughout the meet and greet party to the Claddagh Fund. Rides on Freemont Flightlinez are $15 during the Dropkick Murphys party.
The funds raised by Dropkick Murphys throughout the 13th Annual Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival directly benefit charities which support a mission based on the values symbolized in the Claddagh Ring—friendship, love and loyalty. “We’re so happy to introduce the Claddagh Fund to Vegas” said Claddagh Fund founder and DKM bassist/vocalist Ken Casey. “This is just a natural fit—the Punk Rock Bowling community and our fans are the best, the businesses we’ve partnered with have been great and I’m looking forward to a real fun weekend in Sin City!”
Weekend tickets and packages available only through the Claddagh Fund include meet and greet tickets for a minimum $10 donation, VIP package for $100, as well as limited packages such as the “Diehard Dropkicks Fan” and the “Weekend Warrior” which both provide tickets, VIP passes, hotel accommodations and more.
