There will be ample opportunities to support to the Dio Cancer Fund at the ROCK FOR RONNIE via a silent auction and raffle, beverage, food and merchandise sales, artist meet and greets, a specially-created Garden of Hope and, of course, direct contributions on site. There will also be food trucks and assorted vendor booths selling unusual crafts and other items to round out an afternoon of live music and fun for the entire family and open to everyone. Ronnie James Dio’s love of dragons and their association with his on stage persona will also be reflected in the events’ “Year of the Dragon” designation, a nod to this year on the Chinese calendar.
