Deftones Sign a Daisy Rock Siren Guitar for Chi Cheng Special Needs Trust Auction
(Press Release | Posted 2009-12-02)
Daisy Rock Girl Guitars, the original girl-guitar company, is honored to be a part of Chi Cheng’s Special Needs Trust Auction. Chi Cheng is the bassist of Deftones, one of the world’s leading rock bands. Cheng, like Daisy Rock, strongly advocates giving back to the community and helping people learn how to play and enjoy music. Cheng sponsored a community service group based out of the band's hometown of Sacramento that aids homeless citizens in developing their musical talents, among other things.
In November, 2008 Chi was involved in a horrific car accident and was left in a semi-conscious sate. In support of their bassist and brother, Chi Cheng, Deftones have launched an auction to benefit the Chi Cheng Special Needs Trust. Chi’s family has accumulated an overwhelming amount of medical bills that insurance does not entirely cover, and it is Deftone’s mission to raise significant funds to help ensure his recovery. They have launched the benefit auction in conjunction with their management, Velvet Hammer Music and Management Group, and in association with CharityBuzz.com.
Chino Moreno, lead singer of the Deftones stated, “Wow, first let me start off saying how amazed I am at the generosity of all the friends and artists who have come forward for this auction. We, Deftones are so very grateful to all for your donations and time you’ve put into making this a success. I myself had no idea it would be this big. Just goes to show how many good friends and good will Chi has made over the last 20 years, just being the good dude he is.”
In support of this mission, Daisy Rock Girl Guitars have donated a Black Ice Siren Guitar, which has been autographed by Deftones, to further help this cause. Bidding is now open: to view this and other items, please visit CharityBuzz.com.
