Rock for the Cure began in 2015 as a fund raising idea created by Tom Lillis and Joe Nicastro. Both Tom and Joe have served on the Board of Trustees of the Western and Central New York Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and are members of the band, the Kensingtons, a classic rock/Americana band. They viewed the concert as a great opportunity to raise money for Charity, and with the generosity of many local musicians, corporate sponsors, as well as Tom Barone, who donated the Tralf Music Hall, the first concert was a huge success. This is now an annual event with past performances by The Kensingtons, Ron Hawkins, Strictly Hip, Grace Stumberg Band, The Nicastro Brothers, Mom Said No and K-Ride.
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 will be Matt Connors, Vice President of Development at Sinatra and Company Real Estate and Lauren Hall, local TV personality.
