Rock By The Sea has evolved from the idea that a few music fans could band together to produce a great music event and inspire each other to raise money for meaningful causes. Since the first event in 2007 we have raised funds at Music Festivals, Golf Tournaments, Road Shows, and in 2010, thanks to the many bands and artists who support us, we produced our first Christmas CD. Those activities have helped us raise money that we in turn donated to The Pediatric Brain Tumor Program, Anchorage Children's Home, Camp Sunshine and other charities that provide direct services.
We invite you to become a part of the growing and dynamic Rock By The Sea community.
It Takes a Community, part 3
On Saturday, December 7th, RBTS board members Beth Gosnell and Therese LeGrow delivered a check for $2,000 to support Sister Hazel’s music event Cymplifestivus. Cymplifestivus was held in Gainesville, FL to raise funds for Feed The Children. Sister Hazel is helping to inaugurate Feed The Children’s Artist Program, which links musicians and their fans with children in need of help, both in the US and around the world. They have adopted the community of Los Laureles, Honduras. They are committed to funding projects that will provide the children of Los Laureles with fresh water, a new feeding center and other needed improvements that were identified during the band’s recent visit.
Ken Block, the lead singer of Sister Hazel said “Special thanks to our good friends at ROCK BY THE SEA who donated $2,000 to us at the FEED THE CHILDREN Benefit last night at CYMPLIFY! They are wonderful people and a wonderful organization... The donation will help us greatly in our push to build a new, clean and efficient feeding center in our adopted (and severely impoverished) community of Los Laureles Honduras. Therese LeGrow and Beth Gosnell, THANKS for presenting the check last night. Therese (pictured with me) and I have known each other since Middle School - and it's very cool that we are still connected through music and positive collaborations like this one.”

Our $5000 donation to Anchorage Children's Home was delivered in October. Here's the response we received from them.
"This RBTS donation could not have come at a better time for our agency," said Brooke Bullard, Development Director for Anchorage Children’s Home. “Due to budget cuts, funding pertaining to some of our residential programs is down, so private support is especially important. The RBTS family has stepped up and provided Anchorage a much needed ‘boost’ to help our efforts in serving abused and homeless youth in our community.”
It Takes a Community
In September, Rock By The Sea made deliveries on the community's behalf to two of our beneficiaries.
A donation of $12,500 was delivered to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Program at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children in Orlando. So grateful for all the work they do for children in FL and the SE United States!
Also Rock By The TEE Director, Dave Allen, and his wife, Marie, presented a $10,000 check to Camp Sunshine Director, Sally Hale, after this month's charity golf tournament and concerts.
A tremendous THANK YOU to all of our participants, sponsors, artists and donors for making this happen!!
