The Deftones have announced that they will be kicking off a series of fundraising events to help the family of Chi Cheng with the overwhelming medical bills accumulated for his treatment.
Deftones are starting with a benefit show on November 19th, 2009 in Hollywood, California. Tickets are currently on sale and all proceeds will go to the Chi Ling Cheng Special Needs Trust. Deftones will also be starting a series of online auctions and an online store where additional purchases can be made for the benefit of Chi. People interested in giving direct support to Chi’s recovery will also have “other opportunities” to donate to the Trust.
“We have the best fans in the world and Chi values all of you greatly,” The Deftones said in a release from the band “Please continue to show your unwavering support by helping with this very important cause.”
