The past few months have been busy with very fun and exciting Syd Rocks events... In December, the Rock house presented a student concert and donated the proceeds to our Giving Rocks Foundation and after the show we sold lots of Syd Rocks necklaces in the lobby. The next day, the Rock House hosted our holiday open house called Craft. Rock. Shop. Give. It was a snowy Sunday afternoon, but that didn't deter lots of people from stopping in to make a necklace, buy a Syd Rocks t shirt, sweatshirt or NEW Syd Rocks tree ornament and celebrate the season. In February, Depot Nuevo in Wilmette hosted the 2nd Annual Cocktails for a Cause where 50% of the bar tab that night was donated to our Giving Rocks Foundation. It was a huge success and we sold lots of special Valentine's Syd Rocks merchandise and necklaces. In February, we also headed to Houston to a fundraiser to benefit Dr. McClain (who is amazing) and his Histiocytosis Center's research. It was an incredible evening, I sold necklaces and gave a short speech thanking Dr. McClain and Dr. Allen for all of the exciting work they are doing in Histio research. But, the highlight of the trip was getting to see the lab where all of the research takes place. Another great bit of news is that Texas Children's Cancer Center gift shop will now be Selling Syd Rocks necklaces. In March me and my New Trier Dance Team danced for 13.1 hours at the Chicago Dance Marathon to benefit Lurie Children's Hospital where I was treated for Histiocytosis 6 years ago. We raised over $21,000 for the hospital and it was such an honor that all 24 girls from my team committed to participated in this event. We performed our nationals dance for the crowd and I sold out of ALL of the necklaces that I brought that day - it was great. Last but not least, we are working on our Syd Rocks Walk the Beach 2014, so Save the Date for Sunday, Sept. 14th, 2014 at Gilson Beach in Wilmette. I will update with more info on that soon. If any one would like to help with the planning of this event please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for taking the time stay in touch with me.
