For the past four years, Rock the Bus has been a signature fundraising event for The Joy Bus. This year's event, which took place in September at the Crescent Ballroom in Phoenix, drew nearly 130 people to hear amazing bands and a great DJ. Attendees also bid on cool silent auction items including several stunning pieces of art. The event raised more than $3,000 for The Joy Bus.
Like all of The Joy Bus events, Rock the Bus would not be possible without our fabulous volunteers, donors and sponsors. Special thanks to our wonderful sponsor Natural Selections.
Music was provided by The Soft White Sixties, the Sink or Swim, Yip Yops, Paper Foxes and DJ Kate Scratch Fever. Silent auction donors included Tato Caraveo, Thomas Breeze Marcus, Siek Von Doome, JJ Horner, Melissa Waddell, Jamie Blumenthal, Heidi Buchanan and Keri Mosier.
"Being able to partner with the Crescent Ballroom and Natural Selections shows the generous nature of our community," said Jennifer Caraway, founder of The Joy Bus. "Each band and artist donated their talent in support of our mission. The funds raised will go towards providing nutritional education and medically tailored meals for those in need. We are beyond grateful to call Phoenix home."
