Smithfield resident Rich Antonelli, guitarist for Bon Jovi tribute band Bon Jersey, hopes to record and release his first solo effort in honor of his nine-year-old daughter who is battling Crohn’s disease.
With pledges, he plans to donate 100 percent of the net album sale proceeds to Hasbro Children's Hospital, specifically the Pediatric G.I. unit, in Providence, where his daughter is treated, along with many other kids that suffer from Crohn’s and similar illnesses. Additionally, he will donate profits from pledges that exceed his goal amount to Hasbro. He has less than 60 days to meet his goal. To make a donation, visit pledgemusic.com.
