Rock to the Future surpasses fundraising goal at 1st Annual SOLD OUT Music for All Ball!
Let me start by saying: Wow!
When I started Rock to the Future in 2010, I didn’t completely foresee the amazing positive impact our programs would have on local youth. But Saturday night’s 1st Annual Music for All Ball was a fitting celebration of all of Rock to the Future’s accomplishments over the past four years. My staff, board and I were blown away by the amazing support from our donors, former instructors and volunteers, and event sponsors such as The Somers Team, Fishtown Neighbors Association, Fishtown Lawyers, Yards Brewing Company, Fireball Printing, Tri State Indie and more. Furthermore, we were honored to have support from local media (did you see us Sunday morning on ABC 6?) and community leaders such as Deputy Mayor Richard Negrin, who spoke at the Ball and began his remarks by asking our talented student house band to take a bow…
…. now THAT is what #MusicForAll is all about!
Rock to the Future’s 1st Annual Music For All Ball at the Ukie Club was an overwhelming success! This event sold out weeks in advance and featured live music from the RTTF Student House Band and PhillyBloco – a 22-piece Brazilian Samba band that delighted our 200 attendees and kept the party going all night! Rock to the Future exceeded our goal for this event and all funds raised will be put towards the direct costs of our music education programs for underserved Philadelphia youth.
We also inducted three amazing organizations into Rock to the Future’s Hall of Fame! Our inaugural RTTF Hall of Fame honorees included Women for Social Innovation, Delaware Investments and Curtis Institute of Music.
