Rockton IL, a quaint town that draws thousands of visitors during its flagship festivals “Old Settlers Days” and “Rockton Christmas Walk” has a new festival that is making a difference for this quaint village. Travis Cazel, a Junior at Hononegah High School at the time, founded Rockin’ 4 Rockton with the purpose of supporting and exposing local youth musical acts, while donating proceeds to the cities Athletics Field development goals.
The first year, 2010, showed modest success. Enough to do it again in 2011, except this time, Travis knew a little more about the process of promoting. He enlisted the help of local business owners, including us here at RyCOM, to help pull it off. It worked…to the tone of raising $3,127.19 for the Athletic Fields.
RyCOM looks forward to working with Rockin’ 4 Rockton again in 2012 to capitalize on this success. We strongly support the original founding mission that Travis Cazel, now freshman in college, presented. If you believe in youth arts and athletics and want to get involved, contact us. We can use all the help we can get to make the 2012 Rockin’ 4 Rockton as big a success as it can be.
