Rock for Love 7, the annual benefit concert weekend for the Church Health Center, raised more than $46,000 with three days of music at Ardent Studios, the Young Avenue Deli and the Levitt Shell. The weekend, featuring Grammy Award Winning saxophonist Kirk Whalum, The Bo-Keys and the Memphis Dawls just to name a few, was about more than just raising funds for the Center. It was equally about spreading our message to more people in our community.
