6th Annual School Rocks!

Dear Friends,

Get ready to rock! On Thursday, October 25, 2012, the 6th Annual Rocks! event will bring down the house at the historic House of Blues. You won’t want to miss what has become an unforgettable evening – and a tremendous way to invest in the students of San Miguel School Chicago.

School Rocks! is a heart-pumping, bass-thumping, live concert experience at one of the most famous venues in Chicago. We’re combining nationally known talent, REO SPEEDWAGON, with dancing, food, cocktails and rocks stars treatment – all in support of education. We’re expecting more than 800 guests, and want to be sure to save a place for you!

School Rocks! is all about having a great night out and raising critically needed funds to benefit inner-city students in Chicago. San Miguel School provides each boy and girl with a quality education, nearly tuition-free. That commitment means 95% of our funding comes from the generosity of individual, corporations, foundations and organizations – and you!
