Classics of the past - This is the soul of Rock'n August. Returning to the carefree days of the past, remembering Elvis, Fats Domino, prom nights and sock hops. But the past wouldn't be the past without the automobiles that are now classic, expensive and treasured by their owners. Tender, loving care is the only way to describe the treatment these cars get.
The primary goal of Rock'n August is to continue to be a significant contributor to diabetes research and education. The Alberta Diabetes Foundation at the University of Alberta has set the international benchmark for treatment of diabetes with Islet Cell Transplantation.
This year Rock'n August will make every effort to bring donations to the doctors and researchers who specialize in this disease that will affect one in four Canadians in the next three to four years. All funds raised by Rock'n August remain within the province of Alberta.
