Rock Roulette is a fundraiser for Girls Rock Detroit, a community organization dedicated to fostering girls’ creative expression, positive self-esteem and community awareness through music education and performance. By encouraging creativity, confidence and collaboration in a supportive environment, we strive to empower young women to challenge preconceived notions of what they can do, what they can become, and to become engaged members of our communities. We believe it is crucial that girls have access to equipment and instruction regardless of their socio-economic background, race or ethnicity.
*Funds raised through our annual fundraiser will go towards tuition assistance so that no girl is turned away for lack of ability to pay!*
