Rock for a Cause Kicks Off with a Rooftop Party

The music was wafting down Main Street, Sarasota, from up above, thanks to the talented group of musicians from the Del Couch Music Education Foundation, which is our new partner for the 2016 Rock for a Cause. The Foundation stars, Paige Merriman, Matt Walden and Sam Woolf, helped us kick off the fundraising efforts for the 3rd annual event, along with some major announcements from the S-One team, all on the fourth floor rooftop patio of the Ellis Building on Main Street.

Announcements:

  • In addition to welcoming our new partner, the Del Couch Music Education Foundation, we announced the official date of this year’s Rock for a Cause, which is Nov. 12, 2016.
  • Rock for a Cause is coming back to the streets of Downtown Sarasota! In fact, it will be held right on Main Street at Orange Avenue, in front of S-One’s headquarters in the Ellis Building.
  • S-One announced that it will dedicate $1 per every order for the two months leading up to this year’s Rock for a Cause.
  • Funds raised by S-One and partnering sponsors will be used to send Del Couch Foundation students to the Berklee College of Music Summer Programs.

“Our goal is to send five students to the Berklee Summer Program,” says Angie Lane, a member of S-One’s Leadership Team. “By donating $1 per order for two months, S-One is ensuring that one of those five students will definitely go. We’re counting on our generous sponsor partners to help us reach our goal.”

The kick-off party was complete with a rockin’ auction, with generous donations made by New Jersey artist Jay Alders, 2014 Rock for a Cause winners, Seven Years Past, On1 Cycle and Tropical Beach Resorts.
