Rock for the Gift

September 30, 2015

Rod Simons is a 9-time Emmy winning TV journalist and host of GameON! but more significantly he's dedicated and loving father to his 9 -year-old adopted daughter, Annie. Following her adoption in 2005 Rod & his wife Pam, founded Golf for the Gift - a charity which supports Gift of Adoption Fund which helps turns the dream of adoption into reality for those who could not otherwise afford to adopt.

In 2015 Rod ventured into new territory with a sister-foundation called Rock for the Gift. Being an adoptee himself, Oggi Founder & CEO, Sean Keating is passionate about the cause and was proud to sponsor the first Rock for the Gift.

On September 20, 2015 Rock for the Gift brought together the most amazing mix of popular rock, blues, country and comedy too – all to create forever families through the gift of adoption and supporting the Gift of Adoption Fund. Headlining this outstanding night of music was 2-time Grammy winning former Chicago front man Bill Champlin joined by the unforgettable Chris Hawkey, dynamic singer/songwriter GB Leighton and World Class Comedian Brad Upton.

It was an amazing acoustic evening with four National Artists all sharing the stage! To see photos from the event click here or check out @rockforthegift on Twitter.
