    Shotgun Surprise Touring to Support Aria Marie Foundation - It's for a good cause – see how you can help!

    Aria Marie Spradling was murdered in 2013, leaving behind a baby daughter. That's a double tragedy, and the young girl's surviving family members are working to support and help those who are the lesser seen victims of crimes.

    Dale Spradling, a member of Shotgun Surprise and Aria Marie's father, is the CEO of the Aria Marie Foundation, which was set up to sponsor children who have lost their parent(s).

    Aria Marie's killer (or killers) is still at-large, and she left behind a beautiful, now 2-year-old baby girl.

    Shotgun Surprise are setting up shows across the country to raise money for the foundation.

    Shotgun Surprise are holding their kickoff benefit show "Rockin' for the Kids" at Jackass Flats in Dayton, Ohio on June 28. There will be 19 bands on the bill, activities for the kids during the day, a 50/50 raffle, charity run by the Sons of Resistance and more.

    Aria's sister Dali is the lead guitarist for Shotgun Surprise, as well.

    You can find more information on the foundation and band at facebook.com/AriaMarieFoundation and facebook.com/ShotgunSurprise.

    It's for a great cause, so please spread the word.

    What can you do to support this cause?
