Redskins’ Fan Club Bands Together to Raise Awareness for Organ Donations
Landover, MD – The DirtBags, the house rock’n'roll band of the Redskins’ Appreciation Club (RAC), will debut their new single Draft a New Art Monk (Get a Kidney Too) (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Xls6-uBZSA) at a live concert in the FedEx Field parking lot at 11am Sunday December 6th to raise awareness for organ donations.
The #1 Redskins fan club in the Washington/Metro area, the RAC was enlisted by “Coach” Mike Frandsen to record the song to help him find a kidney donor. Frandsen has polycystic kidney disease and will be in need of a kidney transplant in 2010.
“The world needs to know that Redskins’ fans stand by their team, and their team’s fans,” said Thomas Warren, RAC President. “There is too much negativity these days. But we’re not down. We’re united in two things: Rooting for the ‘Skins and helping Mike get a kidney. That’s all we care about.”
The concert will feature The DirtBags, with “Coach Mike” on the drums. The DirtBags play a fun blend of country/rock’n'roll and feature classics such as Art Monk for the Hall of Fame, Rocky Ain’t Real, and the RAC Fight Song. Art Monk for the Hall of Fame is currently ranked sixth on YouTube for Art Monk with over 3,100 hits.
“Coach Mike provides one-on-one support to children with autism. His is dedicated towards helping others,” said Warren. “Mike is in need of help. Please see www.Mikeneedsakidney.com to see how you can help. He does so much for others. This is the least we can do.”
Coach Mike wants to remind everyone that there are 80,000 people in the U.S. waiting for a kidney transplant and many of them are worse off than him. He recommends that people who are interested in donating a kidney to someone visit www.matchingdonors.com or www.kidneyregistry.org.
The concert will be held at A61 in honor of Casey Rabach, the team’s center. A61 is located in the A section of the Green Parking lot.
