ALICE COOPER Helps Raise More Than $700,000 For Brain Cancer Research

According to AliceCooper.com, legendary rocker Alice Cooper made a quick detour from his "No More Mr. Nice Guy" U.S. tour on Sunday, June 24 to attend a fundraising event benefiting the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation. OMRF scientists have discovered an experimental compound that has shown effectiveness in shrinking tumors in lab animals, and the proceeds from this event will help pay for the clinical trials needed for people suffering from a deadly form of brain cancer. Alice joined Shooter Jennings and his band on stage at the end of Jennings' performance, ripping through well-received versions of Chuck Berry's "Nadine" and the immortal Cooper classic "School's Out". After the surprise performance, Alice offered for auction a once-in-a-lifetime "On Stage With Alice" package, and legendary University Of Oklahoma coach Barry Switzer provided the winning bid! Barry's bid contributed $50,000 at the urging of David Chernicky (who also won an "On Stage With Alice" auction, having just performed with Alice Saturday night in Atlanta).

Coach Switzer will be joining Alice on stage at an upcoming show this year.
