Since its founding in 2007, Rock for Love has put more than $300,000 in the coffers to support affordable healthcare for the working uninsured.

“Every year Memphis musicians, sponsors and music fans come together at Rock for Love to support Church Health, a place that provides quality, affordable healthcare for many uninsured working musicians in our city,” said Marvin Stockwell, Church Health spokesman and show co-founder. “This year, we moved Rock for Love up a few weeks to push all our energy toward the Grand Celebration of Crosstown Concourse, Church Health’s amazing new home base where we are up and running and have the capacity to care for even more people for years to come.”
