Bret Michaels is still ‘Riding Against the Wind.’ And riding his way back to Northwest Arkansas, too.
Michaels — himself affected by diabetes — will perform at the annual Kiss a Pig Gala, which raises money for diabetes research and treatment. The event takes place March 3 at the John Q. Hammons Center in Rogers.
As a charity fundraiser, dinner and wine tasting, tickets exceed that of a normal concert-only event. Individual tickets are $150.
