Partial proceeds from the event will benefit the CASEY CARES FOUNDATION, a Baltimore-based nonprofit organization providing personalized support to critically ill children and their families throughout the Mid-Atlantic, Washington, D.C., and parts of the Midwest.
Marx himself is dedicated to several charitable causes. He donated royalties from his hit single, “Should’ve Known Better,” to build a room at the NYU Medical Center for pediatric cancer patients, and his recording of “Children of the Night” brought attention to the plight of homeless children on the streets, raising more than $500k for the Children of the Night Foundation. Marx has also performed benefit concerts over the years for the TJ Martell Foundation, Toys for Tots, Make a Wish Foundation, the American Cancer Society, Best Buddies and the Special Olympics. He and his band entertained the U.S. troops stationed in Germany and, since 2008, he has hosted an annual event in Chicago for the Ronald McDonald House Charities, the first of which featured a concert by Richard and Kenny Rogers. Richard has also organized an annual all-star benefit concert for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, raising more than $4 million for research to cure the disease.
