Chapters Health Foundation’s 3rd Annual “Rock the Dock” Event Captures Global Audience
More than 1,500 Attendees Helped Raise $80K+
Chapters Health Foundation held its third annual “Rock the Dock” event presented by USI Insurance Services on Saturday, October 24, 2020 in support of Chapters Health System’s Pediatric Palliative Medicine program. For the first time in the event’s history, the innovative fundraiser featured a virtual night of disco fever with world renowned DJ Kopec to ensure the safety of all guests. The global Rock the Dock event raised $83,239 with more than 1,500 in attendance.
“Chapters Health Foundation’s signature Rock the Dock event was an overwhelming success for numerous reasons,” said Adam Stanfield, vice president of development and executive director of Chapters Health Foundation. “By moving the event to a virtual format, our 2020 Rock the Dock gained international exposure with the following top five countries participating: United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Sweden and Ireland. This is an amazing outcome not only for the event but the exposure offered to Chapters Health and its Pediatric Palliative Medicine program.”
Viewers broke out their boogie shoes and tuned in live from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. to dance along with DJ Kopec and his global following, and enjoyed cocktails and conversations with Cyndi Edwards, former co-host of “Daytime” on WFLA. The evening also included trivia, silent and live auctions, photo contests and more!
This year’s Rock the Dock was an opportunity to support the organization’s specialized pediatric palliative medicine program, which optimizes the quality of life of young patients so every child can experience his or her best days possible.
