Nikki Sixx Honored At Covenant House Gala


May 13, 2008

Musician and author Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue and Sixx:A.M. was recently honored at Covenant House California’s 9th annual Awards Gala held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

The highlight of the evening was a check presentation of $250,000 to Covenant House by honoree Nikki Sixx. Sixx is donating a portion of proceeds from his New York Times best-selling book The Heroin Diaries: A Year In The Life Of A Shattered Rock Star to benefit Running Wild In The Night, a creative arts program he created for Covenant House California at their youth shelters in Los Angeles and Oakland.

This summer, Sixx will make stops in the U.S. and Canada, performing with both of his bands, Motley Crue and Sixx:A.M. as a part of Crue Fest, also featuring performances by Buckcherry, Papa Roach, and Trapt.
