Rock On March 23 at Rescue House

Published 9:14 am Thursday, March 15, 2018

It may be chilly outside but things are about to heat up in Davie County.

On Friday, March 23 from 5-8 p.m., Davie County Senior Services’ annual Rock-a-Thon will be held at Rescue House Church and will feature a beach theme.

Nine teams have been hard at work, collecting sponsors for their time in the rocking chairs. A friendly competition has ensued between the teams, and the “Surf Board” at Senior Services has been updated almost daily to show which team is in the lead with donations.

The rockers will have a front row seat for an evening full of entertainment and fun.

The fun isn’t just for the rockers, though.

The community of all ages is invited. Featured entertainment will be the band, “Branded.” This group of seasoned musicians will provide a collection of beach music, classic rock and old country. Dance along to favorites.  They will perform three 30-minute sets at 5:15, 6:15 and 7:15.

There will be bingo, complete with prizes at 5:45, and entertainment by the Boogie Brigade line dancers at 6:45. Face painting, a photo booth (bring your own camera), cornhole and a sand table will be ongoing in the lobby. Hot Diggity Dogs will be on site with a food cart.  Meals start at $3.75. Admission and all activities are free.

A donation box will be available for those who wish to support Senior Services. Proceeds go to Davie County Senior Services, a county agency that provides programs and services to adults 55 and older.

“Be sure to stop by the Rock-a-Thon and enjoy an evening full of activities,” said Kim Shuskey, director. “If you feel inclined, drop a donation in the box before you leave to help ensure that older adults in our county continue to have the wide assortment of activities and services.”
