For the past eight years, Alice in Chains vocalist/guitarist Jerry Cantrell and bassist Mike Inez have hosted the "Alice In Chains & Friends Fantasy Football League & Auction", donating a spectacular collection of signed musical instruments, memorabilia and experiences for an online auction to benefit organizations like Music For Relief and MusiCares. In recent years, they've donated proceeds from the auction to provide protective gear and training for workers assisting with the Ebola Prevention Initiative and contributed funds to MusiCares's health and human services programs.
Each year's charity initiatives are determined by the League's reigning champion. This year's champion is Jerry Cantrell and he's announced that proceeds from this year's auction will be split between a donation to MusiCares in Chris Cornell's name and a donation to Music For Relief in Chester Bennington's name. The auction will run from August 14 through August 24.
League participants include Cantrell, Inez, GUNS N' ROSES' Duff McKagan, TV sports host Rich Eisen, actor Michael Rapaport, PANTERA's Vinnie Paul Abbott, ANTHRAX's Scott Ian, NFL.com's fantasy football columnist Michael Fabiano, former NFL running back Maurice Jones-Drew and GASLIGHT ANTHEM's Benny Horowitz. The 2017 season draft will broadcast live on September 5 on SiriusXM's "Fantasy Sports Radio", hosted by John Hansen and Bob Harris.
Among the items up for auction is a guitar lesson with Jerry Cantrell, a bass guitar signed by the members of GUNS N' ROSES, a guitar signed by DEFTONES, a pinstripe Viking guitar signed by Zakk Wylde, a football signed by members of the NFL Hall Of Fame, a football signed by 2017 Hall of Fame inductee Kurt Warner and more.
