Air Supply, the soft rock band known for its hit “All Out of Love,” has proposed donating its winnings from the television game show “Rock & A Hard Place” to Best Friends Animal Society, based in Kanab, Utah. The band will appear on an episode of the DIRECTV original game show scheduled to air in the fall, according to Dori Stegmen, a talent producer for Blaze TV.

“Rock & A Hard Place,” hosted by Meat Loaf, tests the music and current events knowledge of past and present musical acts, pitting acts such as Grandmaster Flash against groups including The Pussycat Dolls. The contestants play for the charity of their choice, with all proceeds from the group’s winnings going to that organization.

This is not the first time Air Supply co-founder Graham Russell has lent a helping hand to Best Friends. Last year, Best Friends sought a licensed rehab facility for a mule deer with a broken leg. The sanctuary’s research led to Jodi Russell, Graham’s wife. After speaking to Barbara Weider, who works in Best Friends’ Wild Friends department, Graham and Russell arranged for Best Friends to set up a booth at a local Air Supply concert in St. George, Utah. Best Friends Animal Sanctuary collected several hundred dollars in donations at the event.

I have long been a supporter of Best Friends and I praise Air Supply for their generous contribution to this great animal society.
