Rock the Wreath “Rap-Up”
With it’s front lawn set up like a true concert, spectators poured in to not only enjoy the music of the performers, but to support the Children’s Miracle Network with their ticket purchases.
According to the official website, “Rock the Wreath is an annual charity concert that takes place at the University of Central Florida. The event is […] has been a center point of UCF philanthropy for the past six years. Rock the Wreath has grown from a small battle of the bands, to a concert hosting nationally touring acts.”
Rock the Wreath has hosted acts such as Hawthorne Heights, Mayday Parade, Between the Trees, Gym Class Heroes and We the Kings,” according to the site. Although it has traditionally been rock music, this year the fraternity decided to branch out to get more students involved, and brought out Big Sean, who is a nationally known artist. They even brought out opening act, Bezz Believe, one of Orlando’s up-and-coming rap stars and freestyle battlers.
With more than $60,000 donated to charities in Orlando since its inception, it’s clear that Rock the Wreath has a promising future, and has certainly earned a place at UCF as being one of the top philanthropies in terms of dollars raised.
