Countrified Rock for Research 2011

Thanks to all who supported Countrified Rock for Research 2011!

The team exceeded their goal for this year....

raising over $50,000 in one night!

According to Tamra Cantore, Founder and Team Captain of TEAM CANTORE,"It was particularly gratifying to have this kind of success in an economic year that has been very difficult for so many people."

The feedback regarding the event has been incredible!  They recognize the generous support from Premier Sponsor, ABBOTT and other key sponsors including Comcast Spotlight, The Voight Family and LeeBrant Jewelers...which is another part of the success story... Imagine the questions they had before the event about the unusual venue at a jewelry store!  

The beautiful diamond jewelry store was converted into an elegant venue for a night of "Diamonds and Denim."

A selection of silent auction items were available during the initial cocktail hour and the award winning barbeque from ‘cue was available throughout the evening. The live auction was another highlight of the evening was Paula and Kirby from the Kirby Auction Group…they helped us raise over $16,000 in the auction alone.

Then what they’d all been waiting for…Jeffrey Steele and his band played.
