Rock 4 Relief donates concert proceeds to Breakthrough Miami
After more than two dozen students helped Rock 4 Relief raise $2,825 for Breakthrough Miami at its March 10 benefit concert, club president Jacob Tie-Shue '18 presented a check to RE's Breakthrough site director Webber Charles along with members Maia Mora '19, Ben Arriola '18 and Rafi Jimenez '17 and technical director Quincy Knowles.
Rock 4 Relief selected Breakthrough Miami as the beneficiary of its spring event at the Lewis Family Auditorium because club members were drawn to the organization's mission of helping kids from underserved communities receive a better education.

Rock 4 Relief has raised an estimated $20,000 for various causes in the last five years.
