MusiCares MAP Fund Honoring Ozzy, Jeff Greenberg
March 7, 2014 at 11:19 AM (PT)
The 10th anniversary MUSICARES MAP FUND benefit concert will honor BLACK SABBATH frontman OZZY OSBOURNE and owner and VILLAGE STUDIOS Owner/CEO JEFF GREENBERG at CLUB NOKIA in LOS ANGELES on MAY 12th. OSBOURNE will be honored with the STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN AWARD for his dedication and support of the MUSICARES MAP FUND, while GREENBERG will receive MUSICARES' FROM THE HEART AWARD for his unconditional friendship and dedication to the mission and goals of the organization.
There will also be a performance by OSBOURNE and his touring band with special guest SLASH. Additional performers will be announced shortly. The evening's DJ will be MIX MASTER MIKE.
"Ten years ago MUSICARES merged with the MUSICIANS' ASSISTANCE PROGRAM, originally founded by BUDDY ARNOLD, to create the MUSICARES MAP FUND," THE RECORDING ACADEMY and MUSICARES Pres./CEO NEIL PORTNOW said. "Since then our addiction recovery resources and programs have grown substantially, and this annual benefit provides a meaningful way to recognize artists and industry professionals who are on the frontlines in the battle to fight this crippling disease. It's an honor to celebrate OZZY and JEFF in our 10th anniversary year, and we know it will be an extraordinary evening filled with heartfelt words and serious rock and roll."
"I know firsthand about the ravages of addiction and I also know that the MUSICARES MAP Fund is a vital safety net for people in the music industry who need help with substance abuse," said OSBOURNE. "This organization literally saves lives."
"I've been lucky to spend my life in the music business doing things that I love," said GREENBERG. "But I've also seen the serious and, all too often, fatal effects of addiction in our industry, so that's why I am an ardent supporter of the MUSICARES MAP Fund."
All proceeds will benefit the MUSICARES MAP Fund, which provides members of the music community access to addiction recovery treatment regardless of their financial situation.
