Travis Barker helping fundraiser for recovering BMX stars
Blink 182 drummer, Travis Barker, is pitching in to raise money for injured BMX stars T.J. Lavin and Ty Pinney by donating a drum kit for auction.
MTV host and BMX star Lavin was recently released from hospital following a serious bike accident during a BMX championship in October, while Pinney is receiving treatment in a rehab center in Las Vegas after a separate crash in October.
Now Dana White, the president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), is rallying support for his pals by holding a benefit at Vanity Nightclub in Las Vegas on Friday to help raise funds to cover their medical bills, according to TMZ.com.
Barker has donated a set of his beloved drums to the sale, while skater star Rob Dyrdek has offered free entry to his skateboarding haven Fantasy Factory for the highest bidders.
