5 Bands, 11 hours, 17,000 square feet, a mechanical bull, silent auctions, 50/50 drawings, tattoos, belly dancers, food, friends and fun.
What more could you ask for?
It doesn't get much better then that!
It was the first annual 'Rock The Foundation' Event held on Sunday, March 8, 2009 at the Prime Event Center downtown Bay City.
The event ran from 1PM in the afternoon until to Midnight.
All proceeds went to The Patty Brisben Foundation, a non-profit charitable organization, that works to specifically benefit causes directly related to women and sexual health.
According to Sarah McQuade, Pure Romance Consultant, this year's event raised over two thousand dollars.
McQuade said, because of the success of this event, the group is hoping to make it an annual event!
McQuade wanted to thank the Prime Event Center and everyone who helped to make this event a success for the foundation.
Cowboys and this bull traveled from the Silver Derby in Crump. You should see these guys do the splits!
McQuade added, "Surprisingly alot of the money was generated through the tattoos."
