MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Kiss’s Gene Simmons and his daughter, Sophie Tweed-Simmons, are big supporters of a local nonprofit that provides restorative aid to those in need.

Matter is an organization based in St. Louis Park, and they’re throwing a sold-out fundraising gala Friday night.

Even if you can’t go, Matter is accepting donations online. Most of that money will go to help kids who are going hungry here in Minnesota. Click here to learn more.

And you may not know this about our Chief Meteorologist Chris Shaffer, but he’s a huge KISS fan.

So even though he had the day off, Chris jumped at the chance to interview Gene.

Watch the video above to see Chris get a little music lesson from a rock legend!
