Anniversary fundraiser event is free to attend, features food, drinks, silent auction

– Listener-operated community radio station The Rock Celebrates is celebrating a decade of hyper-local community radio. The 10th-anniversary fundraiser concert will take place at the Morro Bay Community Center, on Oct. 28 starting a 4 p.m. Admission is free.

Featured acts include Mesa Bluemoon recording artists Dulcie Taylor, Jill Knight, Unfinished Business, and Murder Hornets.

Aside from the musical entertainment, there will be a silent auction, which accounts for 50% of The Rock’s yearly operating budget. The Rock President, Robert Moynier reminds local businesses that it’s time to step up and show support for community radio by making a tax-deductible product or service donation to the silent auction.

The Rock Founder Hal Abrams says that community radio stations rarely make it more than a few years, “This unlikely community radio station exists because the community supports it through donations and services. It takes a village!” The evening will include great Mexican and Mediterranean food, wine from local cellars, and freshly tapped beer from Firestone.
