Partnerships are extremely important to us and having ShamRock and Randy set an event up on our behalf is very helpful and shows how connecting with others can be mutually beneficial.

On November 30, 2013, ShamRock School of Music will celebrate their 5th anniversary with a night of music benefitting Push to Walk at the Pompton Lakes Elks Lodge, 1 Perrin Avenue, Pompton Lakes, NJ. ShamRock’s Randy Shamber has been a longtime supporter of the nonprofit and has held smaller scale fundraisers on its behalf.

Tickets can be purchased for $40 and include a buffet style dinner catered by Bardi’s Bar & Grill in Pequannock, NJ, cash bar, and music. A variety of local professional and amateur bands including Vince Genella & The Business, Brother Jerome and Kay Roman will join two of ShamRock’s Opportunity Rocks bands. The Reality Rock Band program is for students ages 9-17 and the Adult Rock Shop band features students 25 and over who want to rehearse and perform in a real rock band, giving students the chance to play on stage for friends and family at open mics, recitals and concerts.

Push to Walk is able to cover only about 65% of its operating costs through client fees, and relies on fundraising events to help make up the difference. “Partnerships are extremely important to us and having ShamRock and Randy set an event up on our behalf is very helpful and shows how connecting with others can be mutually beneficial,” explains Push to Walk founder Cynthia Templeton.
