Launch Radio Networks is reporting that TESLA, Pat Travers, and NIGHT RANGER guitarist Brad Gillis and drummer Kelly Keagy have signed on for an animal benefit on January 7. They'll all be at the Dean Lesher Regional Center For The Arts in Walnut Creek, California, for ARF Rocks!, which is being held by St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa and his wife Elaine and their Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF). ARF goes to public shelters and rescues animals that are out of time and headed toward being put to sleep.Travers told Launch that once the La Russas asked him to do the event, he signed on immediately. "Him and his wife came to a show I did, and they, you know, do this Animal Rescue Foundation, and we're big animal lovers here, and, you know, it's fun," he said. "It's a good cause, and it's something I can heartily endorse, and enjoy myself doing it." The cause is something Travers is very familiar with — his mother-in-law has two greyhounds that were rescued.
