Photo Gallery | Community gears up for 'Rock for Love'
In a music city like Memphis, many working musicians are uninsured, and many of them are served by the Church Health Center. At Rock for Love, the Church Health Center’s annual benefit concert weekend, the music community and larger creative community come together to give back to an organization that has helped many of them.
Founded in 2007 by Jeff Hulett, Marvin Stockwell and J.D. Reager, Rock for Love has raised more than $120,000 for the Church Health Center, which provides quality, affordable healthcare to uninsured working people and their families. The Center serves many of the working musicians who have played the benefit over the years.
Rock for Love has grown from one concert at the Gibson Beale Street Showcase to multiple nights at the Hi-Tone.
