Rock For Research benefit for American Cancer Society to be held Jan. 26

What do all rock stars have in common? A dream. Just like all rock stars, Rock for Research has a dream. Its dream is to create a stage for people to come together and take a stand against cancer by raising funds for research that will benefit the American Cancer Society. Those who have already been diagnosed with cancer have a dream as well. They dream that new medicines and innovative technologies will offer them longer lives and, one day, a cure.

On Jan. 26, Rock for Research will be holding a benefit concert and silent auction to honor the lives of Ferne Walker and Dr. William Shoemaker (orthopedic surgeon from San Diego). These two individuals left behind incredible legacies and the event honors them by providing strength, encouragement and support for those who are continuing the fight against cancer.

Take a stand against cancer on Saturday, Jan. 26, from 6:30 p.m. - 12:30 a.m. at the Marriott Del Mar Grand Ballroom. It will be a night to remember. 100 percent of the proceeds from ticket sales, donations and the silent auction will go directly to the American Cancer Society and will be specifically earmarked for research.
