ShamRockin’ for a Cure will return to Alpharetta to rock your night with great food and music on Saturday, March 12, 2016 at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre.
ShamRockin’ for a Cure is the brainchild of close friends of Jon and Pam Baker, whose sons were diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. An army of friends willing to help the Bakers in their fight against the disease grew into ShamRockin’ for a Cure. The event began as a close-knit, grassroots fundraising event that brought friends together to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day to “eat, drink, and help cure cystic fibrosis.” In its first year, the party of 150 guests raised just over $8,500 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF). Now, in 2016, the event is expected to bring in close to 1,500 supporters which is expected to surpass the $1.5 million milestone in their fundraising efforts to fight cystic fibrosis. Party-goers can expect food from some of the best restaurants in Metro Atlanta, plenty of drink vendors to keep party cups full, live music, a dance floor, an incredible silent auction and once-in-a-lifetime opportunities up for grabs in the live auction. Individual tickets are $95 ($34 tax deductible) until March 4 when pricing increases to $105.Tickets may be purchased online at www.shamrockinforacure.com
or by calling the CF Foundation at 404-325-6973
