I want to personally encourage every single SMF out there to buy a ticket to the upcoming Twisted Sister show on March 3rd in Poughkeepsie NY, at the Hudson Civic Center. It's for a very important cause--and ticket prices are low enough for GA to accommodate almost anyone.

Police Officers place their lives on the line every single day, protecting those in the communities they serve. Poughkeepsie Police Department Detective Falcone made the ultimate sacrifice almost a year ago--a true hero who saved the life of a three year old child and lost his own in the ensuing struggle to subdue the gunman. Our thoughts, prayers and comfort go to the family, friends, colleagues and fellow officers who will continue to honor his memory and cope with the loss.
You can read about his last call here:

Proceeds from the March 3rd concert will go to the The John Falcone FBA Fund, National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund, and Fallen Blue.

For those of you who don't know the personal connection Twisted Sister has to law enforcement, A.J. Pero is the National Spokesperson for Fallen Blue, an organization that has been established to help the families of active police officers who die outside the line of duty.

If there is one Twisted Sister show that you were planning to get to this year, let this be the one! If you can't attend, please consider making a donation to one of the charities to help those who serve to protect us:

Hope to see you all there, my babies! Poughkeepsie is just one month away!
