Former KISS guitarists BRUCE KULICK and ACE FREHLEY will appear at this year's 'KISS Cancer Goodbye II' fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, set to take place on October 13th & 14th 2023 on Harvest House campus in Sarasota, Florida.
Bruce Kulick will perform KISS's 'Alive III' album in its entirety at the event, which will include live music on Friday and Saturday night as well music, comedy and other activities on Saturday afternoon.
Ace Frehley will make guest appearances with various bands on both days of 'KISS Cancer Goodbye II' to jam a couple of songs, including during a special 'Salute to the Music of Ace Frehley' segment.
The weekend will also be interlaced with charitable raffles and other fundraising activities. In order to maximize charitable fundraising, the event will include both in person viewing and live streaming during portions of the event.
'KISS Cancer Goodbye' is a fundraising event for the American Cancer Society. It was designed by KISS fans for KISS fans. The concept is to create KISS related events that nobody else has provided.
The charity event was first held in 2022 in Nashville, Tennessee at SIR Studios. The event exceeded all expectations, with over $40,000 donated to the American Cancer Society.
The KISS Cancer Goodbye organizers said: "This year we challenged ourselves to find ways to not only increase our fundraising results, but we also want to provide more education about cancer risks and create a stronger message about the importance of getting checked for early signs of cancer."
