Teamwork For A Great Cause

November 1, 2013

OK I admit, I was a bit skeptical when my friend Christine “Sixteen” Demas approached me a few weeks back asking for my help with a fundraising event she had planned.  “Eight of Central Florida’s best rock bands and local artists plus vendors showing and selling their crafts in one afternoon ABSOLUTELY FREE”?  You gotta be kidding me!!  But she wasn’t.

That’s exactly what we got plus a whole lot more this past Sunday October 27th at the Rock On! For The Cure! For Libby’s Legacy Breast Cancer Foundation!

The parking lot next to Rock On! Resale on N. Orange Ave, Orlando was rockin’ all afternoon with The World Famous Trans Ams, Three Forks Road, Nightrain, Pipestone, Cult Revolution, Psycho Magnets, The Exit and Thunderfoot all donating their time in the fight against breast cancer.  People of all ages coming together for good times and a good cause— isn’t that what its all about?!

The event was the brainchild of Rock On! Resale Owner Christine Demas, and her sister Maria, who is fighting Breast Cancer. Though admission was free, donations were accepted plus there was an auction and a raffle of donated items including clothing, jewelry, art and much more.  The total raised after minimal expenses was nearly $1100.00 (and still counting)!

Rock on for the cure

Libby’s Legacy Breast Cancer Foundation is located just down the street from Rock On! Resale and was formed in 2007 just a year after Libby Maynard succumbed to Stage IV Breast Cancer. (Libby would never say she lost her battle, she would say she WON her trip to heaven!).  Libby Maynard was truly the inspiration behind Libby’s Legacy. She was full of fun, faith and courage and the hope is to embody her spirit through this foundation by being secure enough to be vulnerable, strong enough to be gentle, wise enough to be humble, and powerful enough to serve others!

A special thanks goes out to everyone who generously donated their time, money and resources to make this event such a success.  More importantly its great see the Central Florida rock community, friends and fans pull together as a team for a common cause.  It shows that with a little effort, we can make good things happen because you’re never too old to rock and roll!
