The Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival is proud to announce the partnership of iHome and METAL OF HONOR, an awareness and fundraising effort focused on the needs and challenges of our active duty military, veterans and their families. The Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival has supported Hope For The Warriors® and the Pathway Home, both national not-for-profit organizations dedicated to the many challenges facing our veterans, since their inception.

“Giving back and showing gratitude to those that have sacrificed for all of us and those who continue to sacrifice is the message we want to spread,” comment Mayhem producers John Reese and Kevin Lyman.

As a part of this effort, all Military personnel will be allowed early entry to the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival shows with military I.D. All military veterans are encouraged to go to the METAL OF HONOR tent, located in the festival area, to obtain their METAL OF HONOR wristband and information on the various charities supporting their needs.

The METAL OF HONOR wristband will identify our military patrons as veterans for the crew, bands and fellow patrons. If you see a METAL OF HONOR wristband at our festival….say thank you and acknowledge their service in whatever way you can!

Each veteran over the age of 21 will receive a raffle ticket for a custom Metal of Honor/Jägermeister guitar to be presented to one of these hometown heroes on the main stage to thank them for their service.

A portion of the proceeds of each Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival ticket sold will go to Hope For The Warriors® and the Pathway Home to further aid them in continuing their necessary work. In addition, the METAL OF HONOR in partnership with iHome awareness campaign will include wrapping one of the tour’s semi-trucks with logos of the charities, providing nationwide exposure on major highways throughout North America for over six weeks a text-to-donate campaign, and more. Additional social media outreach efforts will be utilized to bring the message to rock music lovers worldwide.  METAL OF HONOR in partnership with iHome will also have an onsite presence at each festival date highlighting Hope For The Warriors®The Pathway Home and other charities of support.

“Because sometimes the road to excellence requires a helping hand” Supporting: Resiliency, Recovery, & Re-transition

The Pathway Home Program is a Residential Recovery program specifically created for, and dedicated to serve, our Nation’s “New Warriors”—those of any age, who have served our Nation’s Global War on Terror in areas of the world such as Afghanistan and Iraq. Our New Warriors have survived the stressors of war, but may find themselves experiencing problems that are “getting in the way” of their post-deployment functioning. The Pathway Program can help to address those problems and maximize each Warrior’s mental and physical heath, coping, resiliency, and overall functioning-whether that is post-deployment, or to re-deployment, or civilian status.

The goal of The Pathway Home is to provide a comprehensive program of treatment and support for its Warriors so that each one can continue to Recover from the stressors of war or combat or other traumatic military-related stressors. The Pathway Home Program is a place where each warrior can: Capitalize on Resiliency; Re-new and Extend the many Strengths developed during one’s military training, experiences, and career; Strengthen Coping Skills; Strengthen Relationships with self, others, and family members, and; work toward meeting the challenges of transitions to post-deployment, re-deployment, or to civilian life.
