MÖTLEY CRÜE frontman Vince Neil will be hosting the 10-year anniversary edition of The Skylar Neil Memorial Golf Tournament on Friday, May 5 at the Lost Canyons Golf Club in Simi Valley, California."In 1995, I lost my daughter Skylar to stomach cancer," Vince writes in a press release. "Since that time I have endeavored to do everything I can to help raise awareness and much needed funding for children's illnesses. My Skylar Neil Memorial Foundation has donated over a million dollars for the T.J. Martell Foundation, a wonderful organization dedicated to much needed cancer, leukemia and AIDS research."

In other news, VinceNeil.net and Swagrox.com will be auctioning a custom-made aluminum microphone stand and one identical to it — as a spare — which were delivered to MÖTLEY CRÜE in mid-February 2005 for the first domestic U.S. show of the "Red, White and Crüe" tour. It and its sister stand were used at every show that MÖTLEY CRÜE did, including Canada, Europe, Japan, Australia and Hawaii, with the exception of Live 8, up to February 25 in Kalamazoo, MI. Upon delivery, this shiny microphone stand was "antiqued" by Nikki Sixx with spray paint and sandpaper to give it its current dull look. The item was also signed in Kalamazoo by Vince and Nikki. The auction will launch on Friday, March 3 and proceeds will be donated to The Skylar Neil Memorial Fund.
