Rumble on the Rooftop 2013

Four bands, five hours and over 120 people made for a successful Rumble on the Rooftop for the Campus Kitchen at Gonzaga University last Thursday.

As the sounds of Casey Rogers from Sunshine Disaster, Post Organic, The Bossame and The Longnecks with Nic Garofalo alternately floated through the air, crowds gathered on the rooftop of Saranac Public House to raise money for the Campus Kitchen at Gonzaga University. Gonzaga students and community members alike came out to support the Campus Kitchen, which raised money by selling entry tickets and raffle tickets for donated prizes. Raffle items included a night’s stay at the fancy Davenport Hotel, Spokane Chiefs gear and creations from local artists.

By the end of the night, the Campus Kitchen at Gonzaga University raised over $1,600 for their hunger-fighting efforts in Spokane, where they provide 3,000 meals a month to after school programs, low income seniors and homeless shelters in their community.

Thank you to Emily Paulson, coordinator for the Campus Kitchen at Gonzaga University, her team, Gonzaga University, Saranac Public House and all of their supporters for coming together for this event. Check out the great pictures from Rumble on the Rooftop in CKGU’s Facebook photo album.
