Nuçi's Space was founded in 1999 by the Phillips family of Atlanta in memory of their son and brother who committed suicide in 1996 after a long battle with depression. Nuçi was a talented musician and a promising student at the University of Georgia in Athens. Having lived the course of Nuçi's illness with him, the family recognized the need for obstacle free, user-friendly ways of treating and supporting those who suffer from depression and other such disorders. Nuçi's Space provides a variety of services for musicians who are often uninsured including professional therapy and medical care as well as professional services including several sound-proof, low cost rehearsal rooms. Proceeds from Rock N Raffle will aid Nuçi's Space in their mission to prevent suicide by providing obstacle-free treatment for musicians suffering from depression and other such disorders, as well as to assist in the emotional, physical and professional well-being of musicians.
Rock N Raffle was created with the help of the Drive-by Truckers, Widespread Panic, and Plexus Web Creations, all long-time, loyal supporters of Nuçi's Space. 100% of the proceeds from the online contest will benefit Nuçi's Space. "Rock N Raffle will be marketed and publicized nationwide through social media channels," said Ellie MacKnight, of Widespread Panic who also serves on the board of Nuçi's Space. "We love this idea as a fundraiser because with the help of Plexus Web Creations, the site designers and free publicity from tools such as Twitter and Facebook, there are virtually no expenses. We hope fans of the bands and Voodoo Fest will make significant donations in order to increase their chances of winning."
To enter the contest and support Nuçi's Space, go to http://www.rocknraffle.com. For each $1 donation you make, your name will be entered into the grand prize drawing that will take place on October 2, 2009. A downloadable PDF is also available at the Web site for mail-in entries. All mailed entries must be post marked by September 30, 2009.
