Goo Goo Dolls frontman Johnny Rzeznik will be honored at the 20th anniversary benefit for the Little Kids Rock charity on May 17 in New York City.
Little Kids Rock is a nonprofit with the goal of restoring and expanding music-education programs in public schools. Johnny, the father of a young daughter, is being honored with the Rocker of the Year prize at the event, thanks to his 30+ years of hit-making with the band.
The event also will include performances from Run-D.M.C.‘s Darryl “D.M.C.” McDaniels, Jon Secada and The Voice’s season-three winner Cassadee Pope. Tickets can be purchased now at LittleKidsRock.org.
To raise additional funds for Little Kids Rock, a silent auction will launch on Tuesday, May 10, at the organization’s website. Proceeds raised by the benefit and the auction will go toward funding Little Kids Rock programs, teacher training and instrument donations.
