Rocker Sammy Hagar Donates $10,000 to St. Nicholas Parish at Sammy’s Beach Bar
ATLANTIC CITY — Prior to his band Chickenfoot’s show at Showboat’s House of Blues last Friday night, May 18, Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall-of-Famer Sammy Hagar donated $10,000 to the St. Nicholas of Tolentine Parish Food Bank at Sammy’s Beach Bar at Bally’s. Accepting the check on behalf of St. Nicholas was the Rev. Monsignor William A. Hodge.
“When I see children that aren’t eating that’s when I get really touched, so my first goal is to help children as much as possible because they’re the future of this planet,” says Hagar, who has been donating money to the local food banks of every city on the 2012 Chickenfoot Different Devil Tour.

“Anywhere I have a business I do a lot for the communities, and on this Chickenfoot tour, for the first time, every city I go to I donate at least $2,500 to the food bank,” says Hagar.
The donation benefited St. Nicholas of Tolentine’s food distribution center, which has fed over 35,000 people in need over the past 15 years. Also in attendance during the ceremony was Caesars Entertainment eastern division president Don Marrandino, a close personal friend of Hagar.
