10th anniversary rock the cure

The 10th Anniversary Rock the Cure will be held on June 11, 2016, starting at 7:30pm at SweetWater Brewing Company in Midtown Atlanta. Benefiting the Georgia Chapter of JDRF, the 10th Anniversary Rock the Cure is an annual Brews and Blues event featuring the best Georgia has to offer in live music, local brews, great food and exciting raffle prizes.

Rock the Cure (RTC) began in 2006 as a dream of some young professionals in Atlanta wanting to raise money to cure Type 1 diabetes, but also have fun while doing it. This group felt “overlooked” in the current fundraising activities taking place on behalf of JDRF. The Gala reaches an older demographic and the Walk tends to attract corporate teams and families. Wanting to find a niche to educate and involve this proactive age group, a party at SweetWater Brewery seemed to be the answer. Each year Rock the Cure is held at SweetWater Brewery in Atlanta. Since its inception in 2007, Rock the Cure has raised more than $600,000 for T1D research.

VIPs will enjoy local brews, continuous pour wine & spirits, great food, live music in the exclusive VIP lounge located in the Reel Room & early entry starting at 6:30pm. VIP tickets are $85.

Tickets include: Local brews, food and live music on the patio. Entry starting at 7:30pm. General admission tickets are $50.

The 10th Anniversary Rock the Cure Headliner is Member’s Only!. Members Only pays tribute to the decade that brought you the Rubik’s Cube, leg warmers and the Iran-Contra Affair, Members Only plays your favorite 80’s hits with just a hint of hair and a whole lot of flair. Featuring male and female vocalists, Members Only covers a wide range of 80’s pop hits that will keep your party on its feet all night long. If you’re a fan of Huey Lewis & the News, Duran Duran, Peter Gabriel, and Pat Benetar, Members Only is your new favorite band!

VIP Entertainment is Matt Wink. From serenading the local bar scene in Atlanta, GA to playing all over the Southeast, Matt Wink can entertain any crowd. With a repertoire of over 250 songs, Matt Wink plays a variety of acoustic rock covers. Blending his unmatched, southern-charmed vocals with tasteful lead guitar solos, he covers CCR, Allman Brothers, Van Morrison, Beatles, Otis Redding, Temptations, The Band, Grateful Dead and many other classics. Matt also touches on the newer stuff, from Dave Matthews to Gnarls Barkley and even country. He is happy to learn new songs by request for your event, and will also bring several copies of his extensive songs list for your guests to make requests on the spot.

SweetWater Brewing Company is located 195 Ottley Drive NE Atlanta, GA 30324. If you don’t know where that is, it’s in the Armour Circle Industrial Park just off of Piedmont and Monroe, basically right on the border of Buckhead and Midtown Atlanta. It’s east of Brookwood Hills and north of Ansley Park.
