(NASHVILLE, TN) -- On Easter Sunday, March 23rd, VH1 Classic and VH1 will air "VH1 Classic Presents: Aftermath: The Station Fire Five Years Later," a one-hour special of concert highlights from the benefit concert that was held on February 25, 2008 at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island. The special will air simultaneously on both networks at 10:00 PM EST / PST.

Emmy-nominated composer and musician Marc Bonilla served as music director for the benefit, which included performances by Stryper with Tom Scholz and Gary Phil of Boston, Tesla, John Rich, Gretchen Wilson, Staind's Aaron Lewis, Winger, Twisted Sister, Kevin Max, Carmine Appice’s SLAM!, Eric Martin of Mr. Big, Danny Seraphine with CTA, Gary Hoey and others.

The charity event marks the fifth anniversary of the Station Nightclub tragedy in Rhode Island, the fourth largest nightclub fire in U.S. history. 100 lives were lost, 200 others were seriously injured and 65 children lost one or both parents. Five years later, funds available for the survivors are woefully inadequate. Only 15 survivors of the fire qualified for Social Security benefits, and many are still unable to meet their monthly needs.

All proceeds from ticket sales and charity auctions benefit the Station Family Fund, a non-profit 501 (c)(3) charitable organization founded by survivors of the Station Nightclub fire. The Station Family Fund is committed to providing survivor relief, including costs of ongoing treatment and rehabilitation.

“What happened at the Station Nightclub could have happened at any rock venue across the country,” said Tom Calderone, Executive Vice President and General Manager, VH1. “We want to help raise awareness of the survivors’ challenges to a national level through both VH1 Classic and VH1. We’re hoping to tap into that huge community of music lovers and remind everyone about the redemptive power that music, and the great people who make it, can provide.”
