Styx, REO Speedwagon, and Ted Nugent are helping out in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing.  The rockers, who are on the road together on their "Midwest Rock 'n' Roll Express" tour, are raising money for the victims via Styx's "Rock to the Rescue" charity. 

At upcoming tour stops Styx's organization will give away hold fundraising raffles featuring a guitar autographed by all the bands.  Three-quarters of the proceeds from the raffle will go to a Boston-area charity supporting victims of the blast, while the other 25-percent will go to organizations in the communities hosting the shows. 

Styx, REO, and Nugent will be performing at the MassMutual Center in Springfield, Massachusetts Tuesday night.  "The Republican" newspaper says the venue has made a limited number of tickets available through Ticketmaster.com that are supporting The One Fund Boston.
