ROCKIN\' FOR RICE HITS THE TOWN BALLROOM OCTOBER 18TH
The quest to have a skate park built in memory of Alix Rice takes another major step forward at the Town Ballroom next month.

(BUFFALO, NY) – The quest to have a skate park built in memory of Alix Rice takes another major step forward at the Town Ballroom next month.

Buffalo based New Era presents Rockin’ For Rice - a night of music, raffles, and responsibility at one of the city’s premiere concert venues. The October 18th event will feature six local bands:

  • Son of the Sun
  • Wolf Tickets
  • Chosen Ones
  • Red Delicious
  • Come Honor
  • Shout it Out

Doors open at 6:30pm, with musicians taking to the stage from 7pm to midnight.

All proceeds will go to the Alix Rice Peace Park Foundation, Inc. This not-for-profit organization was formed in wake of a July 2011 tragedy that claimed the life of Alix Rice, an 18-year-old East Amherst resident. While riding her longboard home from work, Rice was killed by a drunk driver.

The underlying theme of Rockin’ For Rice is responsible behavior behind the wheel, as Liberty Cab will have a significant on-site presence, and Advantage Limousine has made package deals available for larger groups traveling to and from the show.

Alix Rice Peace Park Foundation President Jon Fulcher organized the first Rockin’ For Rice event in July 2012, a free concert at Bassett Park in Amherst. “I feel there is still a very large need to give people the opportunity to take part in, as well as support, our ongoing effort to build a permanent memorial, “ Fulcher says, “And it’s inspiring to see people genuinely excited about a positive place for her to be remembered.”

Tickets for New Era’s Rockin’ For Rice are available for $20 (plus service charges where applicable) at the Town Ballroom Box Office, Tickets.com, and Phatman Boardshop in Tonawanda.

For more information please contact Jon Fulcher at 716-514-6148, or via email at alixricepeacepark@gmail.com. You can also follow @RockinForRice on Twitter, or go to AlixRice.com.
