Help the Cabarrus County Rock-a-Thon benefit

Volunteers and sponsors are needed for Cabarrus County Senior Center's second annual Off Your Rocker Rock-a-Thon.

The all-ages, 24-hour benefit will begin at 4 p.m. Oct. 17 at the Cabarrus Arena & Events Center, 4751 N.C. 49, Concord, NC.

It will include live music, dancing, movies, amusements for children, a silent auction and live auction, and a classic car show. (Classic car owners can enter the show for $25.)

Individuals or members of organizations can serve as Rock-a-Teers to raise funds for each minute spent “rocking.” Groups can spend the night at their own “camp site.”

Businesses and organizations can sponsor one of 40 rocking chairs or donate food, door prizes and auction items. Sponsorship levels range from $300 to $5,000. Proceeds will help expand programs and provide more resources to Cabarrus County's growing older adult population.
