We are excited to share this People Magazine article that was just published...People article about Syd Rocks
The kindergarteners at Ravinia Elementary school worked tirelessly for the past week selling books, Syd Rocks necklaces and counting lots of coins and dollars to raise an incredible $1928.79 for Syd Rocks to help find a cure for LCH. These wonderful children prove that you are never too young to make a difference. Special thanks to Amy March, teacher extraordinaire who made all of this happen!
Syd Rocks Live 2015 ROCKED 27 Live in Evanston and we couldn't be more excited. We want to thank everybody who made the event a huge success. Our sponsors, supporters, volunteers, friends and family all contributed to a fun, experience with music, necklace making and fundraising. And we can't forget the five bands that made us sing, dance and tap our toes. A big thank you to Pink Lightning, Opening Doors, Paul Stanley and his band, Purple Door and The Will Tilson Band with special guest Corky Siegel. Now to the news that really matters...our fundraising results. Syd Rocks Live 2015 helped raise more than $50,000 for medical research for Langherhan's Cell Histiocytosis (LCH) and pediatric cancer. However, just because the event has passed, it doesn't mean that you still can't donate to help us find a cure for LCH. Visit our website to make your donation today. Finally, check out the video from Syd Rocks Live 2015 to relive your experience or see what you missed.
For the second year in a row, Syd Rocks was one of only 10 non-profit organizations selected nationally to participate in the Lolla Cares program at Lollapalooza. WE had the unbelievable opportunity to be in front of 300,000 attendees over three days to spread awareness about our mission to find a cure for LCH and generate buzz about our signature Syd Rock necklaces. Hundreds of Syd Rocks necklaces could be spotted around the festival. By making a donation, fans could select from a necklace already made or create their very own necklace by picking a rock of their choice. We also sold Syd Rocks merchandise like t-shirts, tote bags and even Christmas ornaments. Lolla was a great experience and we hope to be invited back next year.
