Nikki Sixx to Auction Stage Clothes – Covenant House 2019 – Motley Crue
Nikki Sixx: “Happy New Year! On behalf of everyone at Covenant House and especially our young people, we can’t say thank you enough for your support, shares, likes, comments, and donations! We can’t wait to join forces again this year to save the lives of young people overcoming homelessness!

In 2007, Nikki Sixx released his NY Times bestselling memoir, The Heroin Diaries chronicling his worst year of addiction in the mid-80’s during which he overdosed, was clinically dead for several minutes and which ultimately lead to his path of recovery. Today, Nikki has been sober for 17 years.
Coinciding with the release of the Heroin Diaries in 2007, Nikki partnered with Covenant House California, Los Angeles to pay forward his good fortune and create a music room for the homeless youth finding shelter at the Covenant House campus. The music program that’s been put into place as a result has been Covenant House’s most successful and popular program amongst its residents to date.
This Fall, in October 2017, Nikki is proudly presenting his first ever photography exhibition in partnership with Leica Camera. He has often called photography “his new drug that has replaced addiction in his life and helped keep him sober”. On occasion of the gallery exhibition, Nikki is once again partnering with Covenant House with the goal to raise $100,000 to create a Photography Room and program to benefit the residents of Covenant House California, Los Angeles and expand the creative endeavors of the organization.”
