Rock the Pier Charity Event Part I

On the 11th of September Marcus and I volunteered to cover a charity event called Rock the Pier which was held at the Hard Rock Café in Baltimore MD.   The event was hosted by Kim Reed and the proceeds went to the Fisher House Foundation.  The Fisher House Foundation donates “comfort homes,” built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers. The homes enable family members to be close to a loved one during the hospitalization for an unexpected illness, disease, or injury.  The program originated in 1990 and has serves more than 10,000 families annually.

The event went from 6pm – 10pm and there were numerous people that volunteered to put on the event including the King of Pop and the King of Rock n Roll.  I just just wanted to share some of the photos from the event and Marcus and I were very glad to have had the opportunity to cover it.

The contributors to the event were The Hard Rock Cafe – Baltimore, Barbarian Media, Bennet’s Curse, Black Rose Photography, Boutique of Quality Books Publishing, Bret Michaels Pets Rock!, Canvas on Demand, Charm City Rollergirls, Charm City Cakes, DeSantis Entertainment Group,  Earth Treks Climbing Center, Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, Great BIG Canvas, Ian Brown, Jiffy Lube Live, Langton Art, Marcus Dilano Photography, Matt Macis, miss j NYce, Meridian One, Mike’s Music, Modcloth, Nick Carter, Night of 100 Elvises, Parkway Corporation, Platinum Hitz Promo, Radebaugh Florist & Greenhouses,  Really Big Coloring Books, Inc., Rob “E” Lutz, Roadrunner Records, Sam Roth, Stephanie Martin, Tavis Stanley’s Guitar School, Titorian’s Event Management, Wordsmith and many volunteers

 There are far too many photos that I would like to share so I will am breaking up the event into two posts.  The next post will be primarily be about the performers that gave their time to help bring in money for the event.

This little girl was so adorable I could not resist taking a few photos of her.

We are not sure who this gentleman was but when he walked in quite a few people were whispering and glancing his way so we made sure to take numerous photos of him 🙂

    • Hey Bashar,

      No we did not find out who he was but I also think he is involved in MD politics. His face was familiar and I asked some of the other people that were in attendance but no one was quite sure. Thanks for the compliment!

    • Thanks Angeline.. We were glad that we volunteered. We met so many wonderful people at the event plus I have quite a few friends and relatives serving in the military so this cause really spoke to me. 🙂
