Make a Difference with Food This Week and Beyond
1. Plan to attend the JoeyDCares Rock Orchestra’s “Rockin’ the Cause” next Saturday, June 10, 7-9 pm (doors open at 6:00), at Winter’s Mill High School, to benefit Meals On Wheels of Central Maryland, whose mission is "to enable people to live independently at home through the provision of nutritious meals, personal contact and related services."
Rockin' the Cause is their signature annual event, when they pull out all the stops with many special lighting effects, unique instruments, and audience interaction to make the concert a memorable experience for all. They cover artists like The Temptations, The Doobie Brothers, Taylor Swift, Whitney Houston, Coldplay, Queen, Aerosmith, the Rolling Stones, Imagine Dragons, Blues Brothers, One Direction, Chicago, Bruno Mars, and more popular rock, pop, and lazz acts!
Tickets are $5 in advance ($7 at the door) and are available online at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/rockin-the-cause-2017-supporting-meals-on-wheels-tickets-33382130852. Tickets can also be obtained through any orchestra member.
