Rock the Foundation

  Rock 10- A Record Breaking Year!   

We Rocked It!  On a bitterly cold and snowy Valentine’s Day, in the beautiful Atrium at the Cleveland Museum of Art, we made history with Rock the Foundation 10.  The numbers tell the story:  49 sponsors contributing more than $180,000, 424 attendees (in spite of the weather), 5 hours of incredible jazz and rock music, 2 sell-outs of Love Potion #10.  We cannot say “THANKS!” loudly enough to all who supported and participated in this wonderful event.  



Rock 10   

This year, Rock 10 - HeART the Foundation was moved to a new, premier venue - the majestic atrium at the Cleveland Museum of Art. The night included a VIP Pre-Party where guests were treated to live jazz music from Transportation Boulevard and select Gallery admission. The Main Event followed; featuring a Red Carpet welcome, premium open bar, live dance music from Heart & Soul, fabulous food stations, Green Screen photography and a special hands on art project! A special presentation was also made to honor of one of Cleveland's best examples of Lawyers Giving Back:  Richard W. Pogue.
