Tonight marks the 9th annual Rock for a Cure event benefiting the New Hanover Regional Medical Center Foundation’s Pink Ribbon Project. The event is hosted by the Communication Studies Society and will be held at the Reel Cafe, located in downtown Wilmington. The event is to help raise awareness and funds for the Pink Ribbon Project.
There will be performances from The Schoolboys and UNC-Wilmington senior, Lake Gibson. The auction will contain sports memorabilia, concert tickets, jewelry and other items. Aside from the auction, a raffle will also be held, with prizes such as an iPad mini 3, more concert tickets, gift cards and more. Thanks to the contributions provided by the sponsors and donors, Rock for a Cure is able to provide great prizes that have raised over $33,000 since its inception.
Rock for a Cure is successful by appealing to not only college students, but also the Wilmington community. The event is only $5 to attend, which makes it one of the most affordable philanthropic events in the area. This allows community members to contribute more towards the auction and raffle, which is a prime generator of the funds. However, the low entrance cost makes the event appealing for students because they can be a part of the event and help the cause.
The fun kicks off a 6 p.m. tonight. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to give back and have a great time. If you can’t make it, what other ways are you giving back to your community?
