Friday April 8, the sixteenth annual Rock for Hope featured new and pro bands from 6:00-11:00. Tickets could be purchased in advance for $7, or $10 at the door.

Current and incoming officers were excused from class that day, joining the decorating committee after lunch.

“We managed to get everything done and it was pretty fun to get to know the officers,” junior Erica Hui said.

Hosted by NHS, and lead by co-sponsor Nick Adams, the total estimate of $2500 was raked in for the For 4 Love Fund.

“Overall I think it went very well because we started off the night with pure profit so all the money went straight to charity,” NHS VP Rashin Alipour said.

While attendees enjoyed various performances in the lounge, auditorium, gym and bridge, refreshments were held in the cafeteria. Leftovers will be contributed to the end of the year Senior Sizzle.

All bands were given a chance to sell various merchandise such as their CD’s. NHS members held raffles for gift cards, band autographed posters, and sold vintage Rock for Hope shirts.

“There was a variety of different styles of music so everyone could enjoy it,” Alipour said.

Amateur bands included:

-Local Talk

-I Am Nation
