Rock For Robbie had been on a hiatus three years before senior criminal justice major Dana Wozniak picked the event back up. This is her second time putting the event together and despite the low turnout last year, Wozniak plans on making this year’s concert the best it can be.
The annual concert is hosted by the sisters of Sigma Sigma Sigma as a means to raise money for the Robbie Page Memorial Foundation founded by Sigma Sigma Sigma in 1954 as a response to their national president’s son dying from polio.
“Our national president’s son, Robbie Page had a wish to have all his birthdays at once so he could grow up and help the other children like him. All the proceeds go to the Robbie Page Memorial Foundation which funds play theory for terminally ill children,” said Wozniak.
This year, Rock for Robbie will include performances by rappers from the All Day Audio studio and hip-hop musician Oliver Spitts. “I’m pleased to come back and perform at Rock for Robbie again because I get to do what I love in front of my hometown while raising money towards a good cause. Without Sigma Sigma Sigma and their event I would still be without a performance in Lock Haven. The bars in the area aren’t keen on hip-hop, so I love that Sigma Sigma Sigma presents a platform for local talent to be heard,” said performer Oliver Spitts.
The event will be held at Rogers Gym this Friday and the price is $2.00. Tickets will be available at the door on the day of the event. Doors open at 4:45 p.m. and the concert starts at 5 p.m.
