Veilside is a very strong supporter of children's charities, having donated time and money to the Kelsey Briggs Foundation Against Child Abuse, Headstones for Angels, and the National SIDS Organization, as well as hosts the annual "Breaking the Silence" Autism Awareness benefit show which raises funds for autism awareness. Now in it's SEVENTH year, the event has raised over $68,000 for the cause!
Veilside's guitar player, Tom Finnelly passed suddenly in April of this year. Sharon joined the band in October as his replacement and Farm Rock Atlanta was only her third show with the band. We thought she was badass and had no idea that she had not been with them all along!
