Members of Iron Maiden, Andrew WK, Murderdolls, Type O Negative, Disturbed, Poison, Guns N Roses, AC/DC, Orgy, Danzig, Fear Factory, W.A.S.P., Bang Tango, Quiet Riot, Beautiful Creatures, Cinderella, Lynch Mob, Danger Danger, Ministry, Misfits and Great White are among the musicians that have reportedly been confirmed to appear a benefit concert on Thursday, January 20, 2005 at the Hard Rock Café in Beverly Hills, California to raise funds to pay for the surgery and medical treatment of Raven Nicole Robinson, a two-month-old girl born with a very large hole in between the right and left pumping chambers of her heart.

According to a posting at RavensHeart.org, "[Raven's] condition is called Ventricular Septal Defect. Large ventricular septal defects cause problems, as the pressure in the right side of the heart decreases, blood will start to flow to the path of least resistance. This leads to congestive heart failure and must be treated. The most important sign of congestive heart failure is the baby's growth.

"Babies who have significant congestive heart failure will have failure to thrive and will have difficulty maintaining a normal weight gain in the first few months of life. Such is Raven's case, at birth she weighed 7 lbs. 7 oz. She is now [four] months old and struggles with every swallow; [Mother] Misse often feeds her with a medicine dropper and anticipates the usual vomiting that follows. Raven has just reached 8 lbs. She is on numerous medications to try and prolong her life until surgery."
