 A Rock For Tots Drum Roll Please... Total raised: $26,000 plus tons of toys! For the 16th Annual Rock For Tots, 100% of the proceeds go to the Clinton Township Goodfellows "No Child Without a Christmas" organization! The event was held at Freddy's Bar & Grill in Clinton Township. This was the 1st year with 94.7 WCSX! Thank you to Donielle Flynn who ventured out to see what I was up to! Also on the scene, big thanks to the WCSX Marketing Director, Ben Perez, as well as Austin, Rev, Faryn, and the WCSX promotions crew. Day #2 was just as fun and crazy as Day #1!

Speaking of Santa, special thanks to my friend Scott Madding who is close friends with Santa but I never see them in the same room and at the same time. THANK YOU TO FREDDY'S STAFF The staff busted their tails to keep the beverages flowing, along with the kitchen staff who produced food from morning, noon, and night! Security, Joe, Blair, King! Jay Joe G & Gino for being such great hosts to our weekend of madness. Thanks To Our Rock For Tots Volunteers Elf's Those folks who ran through the crowd selling raffle tickets and 50/50 raffles to winners who were kind enough to donate the money back to the kids. Also, gather raffle items and get together to put together a lot of the fabulous raffle baskets! HUGE THANK YOU TO OUR PERFORMERS All 55-plus bands who every year donate their talents for free to entertain us. Some amazing music all weekend with so many highlights. I am so proud of our Detroit music scene. To the Rock 4 Tots Board of Directors  Thanks for putting up with me and my sidekick Loco Joe on the stage. We have an amazing group that has stuck together for 16 years to bring you the most magical music event anywhere. The Rock-4-Tots Board of Directors Jimmy Klapp, Joe Evangelista, Margie Anders. Without the talent of these people, we would not have a show. Folks give me credit but the truth behind the curtain is these friends are the best and so happy to have had the pleasure of having to work alongside side for 16 years. Be sure to mark your calendars for December 7th and 8th, 2024 for the 17th Annual Rock 4 Tots show!
