Scenes from Rock the Give!

Posted By on Fri, Nov 22, 2013 at 2:58 PM

Last night, as part of ongoing Indy Give! fundraising efforts, CityRock hosted five of this year's featured nonprofits for the second annual Rock the Give! event. 

Those five were: Kids on Bikes, Medicine Wheel Trail Advocates, the Trails and Open Space Coalition, the Rocky Mountain Field Institute and the Millibo Art Theatre

New Belgium Brewing Co. provided some brews and Distillery 291 the requisite whiskey for a real party. Ben Pratt handled the live music, powered by the Pikes Peak Community Foundation's Mobile Music Project

For now, here's a little look at last night's fun:
