Third Party Fundraisers

A third party fundraiser is a company, organization or individual that wishes to hold a promotion, event, or sale to benefit Rocking The Road For A Cure. We are grateful for dollars raised through events – they help our organization provide in-home health and wellness services to individuals undergoing breast cancer treatment.

Because of the volume of these requests, we cannot personally participate in each event that is proposed but will provide materials about Rocking The Road For A Cure and the services we provide for your event.

Rocking The Road For A Cure encourages third party events (i.e. golf outings, marathons, sales benefiting RTRFAC, etc). As an event organizer, we ask that interested individuals provide all the elements needed to complete the event promotion. Before an individual, company or organization may proceed with a special event or promotion to benefit our organization, they must fill out an agreement provided by RTRFAC. These rules only apply to event organizers who wish to use the name of Rocking The Road For A Cure or its logo in promoting the event, and not to companies organizing internal employee teams. RTRFAC will review every application, and reserves the right to deny any or all parts of an application.
