Funds will go to the United Way to benefit all tornado victims from this Spring.

You can also send a 10 dollar donation by texting REBUILD to 52000.

Student musicians from ACM@UCO will also be sharing the spotlight.

Losses from the tornadoes are estimated to reach $2 billion. Many of the short-term needs of victims have already been met. The goal of Rock for Oklahoma is to help them with long-term issues and problems, such as regaining livelihoods. All of the proceeds will be dispersed to central Oklahoma community organizations and charities.
