Welcome to a symphony of community spirit!

Let's delve into the harmonious world of Rock Voices, the heartwarming mission of We've Got Friends, and the resounding success of their recent fundraising collaboration.


Rock Voices: A Chorus of Inclusivity

Rock Voices isn't just a choir; it's a no-audition adult choir dedicated exclusively to the uplifting melodies of rock music.

The Fundraising Melody

A standout feature of the Rock Voices concert was the raffle initiative, where We've Got Friends was nominated to receive the proceeds. The community united, contributing over $1200 to support the We've Got Friends organization. This contribution will undoubtedly propel We've Got Friends' mission of providing a social haven for teenagers with Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities (I/DD), aligning with the essence of inclusion that both organizations stand for.
