Life-Long Friends Raise Over $315,000 For Charity
Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano presented Board Members and volunteers of Rock Out Cures (ROC), Inc. with Citations for their ongoing charitable work.
ROC President and Founder Bryan J. Mayer of Elmont along with Vice President James Gangone, Treasurer Thomas Mayer, Secretary Matt Buck and Community Relations Director John Paul Iacona lead a team of volunteers that have raised over $315,000 since 2008 for charity and those in the community in need. ROC is a 501 C (3) non-profit organization, that originated as Rock Out Cancer. Each year the organization holds an event with several bands donating their time and talent for free.
In 2008, proceeds raised were donated to the American Cancer Society. In the following years, additional benefactors chosen include America’s VetDogs, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society Long Island Chapter, Food Allergy Research & Education, The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, the AHA-Asperger Syndrome and High Functioning Autism Association, and those in the community in need.
ROC continues to evolve and help others, organizing toy drives, assisting other organizations such as NY Says Thank You, as well as organizing a disaster relief drive in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.
