LAKE OSWEGO, Ore. (AP) — The band Kiss shed the makeup and pulled out acoustic guitars to raise money for the renovation of the Oregon Military Museum.

The Oregonian reports the $2,500-a-ticket gala Sunday night in Lake Oswego raised more than $1 million.

The museum is named for the father of lead guitarist Tommy Thayer. He is Brig. Gen. James B. Thayer, now 93, a World War II hero who liberated a Nazi death camp.

The museum is at the Oregon National Guard's Camp Withycombe in Clackamas. The renovation is expected to cost $15 million, and half has been raised.
