An event to support the Against the Storm Foundation
Held on: February 26, 2022
See you next year!
6th Annual Rock For The Cure
The 6th Annual Rock for the Cure on Saturday, February 26 at The Tralf really rocked!
Thanks In large part to the support and the generous funding we received from our many sponsors, this year’s event raised a record $22,765.
Meghan Benimoff and her son, Desmond, were the stars of the show. Between outstanding performances by Mom Said No and The Kensingtons, Meghan told those attending her story; from first learning her young son had Leukemia, to Des ringing the victory bell at Roswell Park.
The Against the Storm Foundation exists to help fight blood cancers and support other causes that will improve the health and quality of life for people in need.
Last year, the foundation provided financial support to establish the LLS Western NY Pediatric Travel Assistance Fund to assist families such as Meghan and Desmond.
Matt Connors, vice president of development at Sinatra and Company Real Estate, and Lauren Hall, from WGRZ-TV, co-hosted the event and served as emcees for the evening.
Special thanks to the Western New York media for helping to promote this year’s event.
Proceeds from the Rock for the Cure concert will help the Against the Storm Foundation further its mission to raise funds to help fight blood cancers and support other causes that will improve the health and quality of life for people in need.
Hosting this year’s event was Matt Connors, Vice President of Development at Sinatra and Company Real Estate and Lauren Hall, local TV personality.
Mom Said No is a Buffalo-based group of talented musicians that is known for its high energy live performances. The band has perfected its own brand of alternative pop.
