The Lower Niagara Community Survivors group will hold its second annual “RockOut Cancer” fundraising event from noon to 8 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 15, at the Lewiston Stone House, 755 Center St. Admission to the all-day event includes food donated from the Stone House, Gallo Coal Fire Kitchen, Casa Antica and the Brickyard Brewing Co. Live entertainment for the day is also donated by Vinyl Addiction, The Tower, Mr. Thank You and Different Districts.

The headline sponsors for this year’s event are Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center and Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, two leading medical facilities that came together last winter to offer state-of-the-art cancer screening and survivorship programs to the residents of the Niagara Region.

“It was an honor for Memorial to sponsor the inaugural event last year, and we are pleased to share the headliner sponsorship this year with our partners, Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center,” said Joe Ruffolo, Memorial’s president and CEO. “Through the new Roswell Park Comprehensive Care Network, the world-renowned services of Roswell Park – the region’s only comprehensive cancer center – are now available to Niagara County residents through the Thoracic Center and Lung Cancer Screening Clinic located on our Tenth Street medical campus in Niagara Falls. And we have more collaboration planned for early 2020.”

“ ‘RockOut Cancer’ is a great way for us to reinforce our commitment to making sure those living in and around the Niagara Frontier can access outstanding cancer care close to home,” said Candace S. Johnson, Ph.D., president and CEO of Roswell Park. “The event will be a great complement to our clinical program, as every dollar raised will support the everyday needs of cancer patients from the Niagara community.”

“RockOut Cancer” is hosted by the Lower Niagara Community Survivors, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization run entirely by volunteers. One hundred percent of the event’s proceeds benefit those who have or have had cancer. Services offered range from lawn care to grocery shopping, gift cards to groceries.
