The officers of Rock 4 Relief (Santiago Sauceda '24, president; Sofia Rakhimi '25, vice president; and Ari Bennet '24, secretary) partnered with a non-profit co-founded by Sirja Joeveer '25 called We Dance for Change to host the event.

Jake Perdigon '24 produced a Ukraine Tribute Documentary to open the event, and a string quartet consisting of Evelyn Yu '24, Joeveer, Christine Keedy Brown '24 and Tariq Maduro '26 performed the Ukrainian Nathional Anthem and "The Hunt" by Mozart. Sander Joeveer '24 served as emcee.

Lucia Soto '24 sang and played "Imagine" by John Lennon on the piano, and many other students performed or assisted RE faculty member Quincy Knowles with the set and staging.
