for a Reason
Saturday, November 2nd, 2013
10:00am to 3:00pm
9500 Spirit Mountain Place, Duluth, MN
Ninth annual Rockin' for a Reason – same location as Women Rock so you can have fun at the event when you are not rocking. Rocking only takes ½ hour of your time and the fundraising is so important. The two rockers with the most pledges received each receive a plush rocking chair from Slumberland Furniture (first place will receive two rockers!).
Who Rocks? You do! In 2012, our Rockin' for a Reason again raised thousands of dollars! (Yes, thousands… the teams are very dedicated and three to four of the teams come back every year. They are dedicated to helping others right here in our region – possibly your neighbor, or relative or friend. Some teams, besides being dedicated to helping others, are there also to preserve and celebrate the memory of a dear one that has past away from breast cancer. The T. Speiker family, the Rydberg family , the O'Neil family, St. Luke's Breast Cancer Support Group, Faith Lutheran Church, and Lin Aho and the ladies at La Peinado Salon in Superior are some of our teams that come back every year and dedicate themselves to this cause. A huge thank you to them and all that they have donated in throughout the years.
Come and join us this year – get a team together or rock as an individual… get pledges for rocking in a comfortable rocking chair provided by SLUMBERLAND FURNITURE… how easy can it be – no walking – no running. Maybe it is in honor of someone you know or a relative. Get your team together and have fun with it… have t-shirts made up and/or make it a team challenge between team members on who gets the most pledges in your group… maybe they will get something special from your group. All participants over a $10.00 donation will get a free Rockin for a Reason t-shirt.
Thank you to Slumberland for providing the plush rocking chairs every year to rock in and also donating the chairs to the top two rockers with the most pledges received. They also donate a chair for us to put in the Silent Auction every year as well. Please remember this and thank them by shopping for furniture or accessories at their store on Maple Grove Road in Duluth.
