"This is a wonderful opportunity for the community to support Habitat for Humanity, even if they’re unable to help with the construction of homes,” 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, and we’ll have plenty of activities and performances to keep the entire family entertained.”   

The second annual Rock-A-Thon will take place at Lowe’s in the parking lot adjacent to the garden center. The event will feature live entertainment from local bands including 99 for One of First United Methodist Church of Stuart, the Treasure Coast Community Church praise band; children’s activities including a Boys & Girls Club craft table, Lowe’s kids clinic, and face painter; a raffle with robust gift baskets and prizes; food and much more. Funds raised will help build homes for deserving families throughout Martin County.
