Rock To The Rescue is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit founded in 2002 by STYX and REO Speedwagon to help victims of the 9/11 tragedy. Playing a series of benefit concerts that included friends such as Bad Company, Journey, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kansas and others, Rock to the Rescue was an effort that raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the support of families who had lost loved ones to the 9/11 tragedy. Realizing the power of these efforts, STYX and REO went on to play shows to benefit additional causes such as music education for children, and continued to engage in charitable giving in communities around the country.
“I have to like something before I support something,” said Diana Warner of the partnership. “I love that R2R focuses on America. Here’s a major rock n ’roll band whose focus is on needs that exist in this country, and they’re doing something about it,” she stated in a press release.
Warner has created four signature pieces for the R2R Collection: a ring, pendant, earrings, and a charm that capture the Diana Warner aesthetic while paying homage to an edgy, rock and roll fashion sensibility.
The R2R collection will be available at www.dianawarnerstudio.com as well as at select authorized Diana Warner retailers
In 2013 R2R raised over $100,000 for the One Boston Fund after the Boston marathon bombings as well as over $400,000 for Midwest cities ravaged by tornadoes. To date R2R has raised and donated over $1.5 M.
