The Rockford Lions and the Rockford Rotary are teaming up to host this can drive to benefit the Rockford High School Band in replacing their lost revenue from the robberies. The Band is gearing up for a trip to the Rose Bowl Parade in 10 months and we want to give the Rockford community the opportunity to help us turn this negative incident into a positive event!

Spokespersons for the Rockford Lions, and the Rockford High School Band and Boosters will be available for comments at the event and prior. Please contact Deb Davis for further information. 
Please note: While the owners of Great Lakes Ace Hardware are supporting this effort with the use of their property for this event, no spokesperson will be available regarding this event. Thank you for your attention to this detail.
