Rock Band Styx Teams up with Friends to Help Youth Mentoring (July 2015)

STYXIf you're planning to be at Meadowbrook on July 7 for the Def Leppard/Styx/Tesla concert, please do stop by our information booth - and enter a raffle to win a Stratocaster guitar signed by the members of Styx. Raffle sales will support our efforts to match Merrimack County youth with volunteer mentors.

The Friends Program was selected to be the latest beneficiary of Rock to the Rescue  - a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded by rock bands Styx and REO Speedwagon to build strong, healthy communities through the support of grassroots causes across the country.

"We were delighted to get the call out of the blue from Rock to the Rescue," said Friends Development Director Mark Foynes. "As a nonprofit ourselves, we're always delighted when people and organizations step up to support our work to help our most vulnerable neighbor."

"In addition to the funds raised," Foynes continued, "this is also a great opportunity to showcase the great work of our 800-plus volunteers and raise public awareness about their dedication to the community."
