Sammy Hagar donates $75,000 to Nevada Cancer Institute’s Rock For The Cure

“My pockets are full,” exclaimed Sammy Hagar, referring to the $75,000 check his family foundation gave to the Nevada Cancer Institute (NCI) at Thursday night’s Rock for the Cure, reports the Las Vegas Examiner.

“When I created the Beach Bar and Grill at McCarran Airport,” said Hagar. “I decided that 100% of the profit would go to charity. So when Nevada Cancer Institute asked me to get involved with Rock for the Cure, I said, 'I will not only play for you, but I’ll give you some money, too.'”

Sammy joined Larry King and Eva Longoria-Parker Thursday night at CityCenter’s Aria Resort & Casino for the institute’s annual fundraiser.

Hagar also donated an all-expense paid trip to Los Cabos, Mexico, a beachfront stay at the exquisite One & Only Resort in Palmilla, a signed bottle of the rare tequila Cabo Uno, and two signed bottles of Cabo Wabo Reposado, which sold for $18,000.
