A fundraiser for the
Music Resource Center
The goal of Party Like a Rock Star is to raise money to help ensure the Music Resource Center (MRC) remains affordable to all 6th – 12th grade students who come to the center to dance, take lessons, practice songwriting, and learn about music composition and production. Most importantly, the money we raise provides a safe, creative, supportive environment for teenagers in our community. The MRC has become a space where teens truly WANT to go to learn new music skills, get inspired, and socialize with peers from all over the Charlottesville area.
