Hey it's Syd! I wanted to let everyone know that Rock the Beach for Syd Rocks 2014 was a great success. Over 400 people came and we reached our goal and raised a little over $50,000!! It was the most beautiful day to be at Gillson beach. The unique sounds of Fruitful Dave, Pink Lightning, Xazz and Will Tilson with my cousin Corky Siegel blew everyone away. It was such an honor to have Dr. Kenneth McClain from Texas Children's Cancer Center fly here to speak at the event. He is so passionate about his research and it gave everybody there a sense of purpose. I feel truly blessed to live in a community that is so supportive of my cause and the mission of Syd Rocks... to help find better treatments and ultimately a cure for LCH. This past summer, Syd Rocks was fortunate to have been one of only 10 charities represented at Lollapalooza and it was an incredible experience. I met so many great people who were interested in hearing about and buying Syd Rocks merchandise. We sold over 400 necklaces in three days and got to see some of my favorite bands. I am working on some exciting future events and will post them here once they are finalized. Thanks for keeping up with Syd Rocks!
