Rock-A-Thon to raise funds for Habitat for Humanity of Martin County

Friday, November 5, 2010

Habitat For Humanity of Martin County is gearing up for the 2010 Rock-A-Thon, Saturday, Dec. 4, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Lowe’s, 3620 S.E. Federal Highway in Stuart.


“This is a great opportunity for the community to support Habitat for Humanity, even if they’re unable to help with the construction of homes on the job site,” said Mary Jones, director of volunteer services for Habitat for Humanity of Martin County. “The beauty of a Rock-A-Thon is that almost everyone can rock in a rocking chair!”


The event will take place at Lowe’s in the parking lot across from the garden center and will feature live entertainment, children’s activities, a silent auction featuring robust gift baskets, raffle prizes and refreshments. Funds raised will help build homes for deserving families throughout Martin County.


Join Habitat volunteers, homeowners, students, civic groups and local congregations at this fun-filled event to support the Habitat mission.


There are several ways to get involved:

  • Rock as a team or individual – sign up now to begin fundraising!
  • Pledge to sponsor a rocker or team – donations start at $1 per minute.
  • Sponsor the event – sponsorship opportunities range from $50 to $250.
  • Enter to win a 32-inch LG television – tickets are $10 each or six for $50.
  • Stop by the Rock-A-Thon (it’s FREE!) and cheer on the rockers and enjoy the live entertainment.
