Judi H. Memorial Fund Rock On

Judi H Rock On 6

On December 14, 2007, Judi Perry Hartridge, passed away at the age of 45 after a year-long battle with cancer. To honor her memory, family and friends formed The Judi H Rock On committee to raise funds to fight the disease that claimed her life. The event is a dance party/raffle.

Thanks to the generosity of local businesses and friends, over the past five years we have raised over $200,000 which includes matching funds, in support of local cancer services.

We hope you can join us on Saturday, October 1, 2016 for Judi H Rock On 6. Please visit the Event information page for more details!
