Rock the Heart: Rush-Copley Annual Live Music Fundraiser
Rush-Copley rocked another successful “Rock the Heart” fundraiser at Ballydoyle Irish Pub in downtown Aurora. A group of talented musicians including Rush-Copley’s own Jason Harris (Materials Management) from the band Citizen Spy, and Drs. David Vik and Ed Chen, from the band Shark Sandwich, along with other top musicians played to a crowd of more than 700 revelers.
The event benefits the Fox Valley Heart Fund (FVHF), which supports cardiovascular services for uninsured and low-income residents of our community through the Aurora Community Heart Clinic. Other FVHF programs include the Annual Women and Heart Disease Symposium, the Heart Sisters cardiovascular support group, AED donations to local agencies, and scholarships to local nursing students.
The popularity of this event continues to grow. This year's event net proceeds were more than $47,000 with a total of 722 tickets distributed (up from $41,000 and 658 tickets last year).
Thank you to all who attended and to our great sponsors of the event.
