NYC Boost Mobile RockCorps Show
This year, 5,000 community-conscious youth across New York and surrounding areas will earn tickets to a signature BMRC show at Radio City Music Hall which will feature some of the hottest names in hip-hop, R&B and rock. Ludacris, Fabolous, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Busta Rhymes, and Angels & Airwaves will be part of the stellar line-up of today's top-selling musical talent to take the stage at the New York show on October 6.
RockCorps, an organization harnessing the power of music to inspire volunteerism, and Boost Mobile, a wireless telecommunications brand dedicated to boosting the lives of today's youth, have partnered to continue the youth movement for social change. Combining the power of music, community and volunteerism, Boost Mobile RockCorps will offer entrance to this summer's most popular concerts for which the only way in is to earn tickets by contributing four hours of volunteer service.
This year's volunteers will work on a range of service projects, in partnership with local non-profit organizations, including school and playground renovations, environmental initiatives, food distribution and much more. New York City will mark the conclusion of the 2007 BMRC U.S. Tour - which also visited Los Angeles, Oakland, Miami, Atlanta, Baltimore, New Orleans, Houston, Chicago, Portland, and Philadelphia. By the end of the 2007 tour, BMRC volunteers will have contributed more than 100,000 hours of community service and transformed hundreds of project sites in cities across the country.
People interested in participating at upcoming BMRC events are encouraged to log onto www.boostmobilerockcorps.com and to register for membership. Boost Mobile RockCorps members will be notified of opportunities in their area to volunteer and asked to commit four hours to a specific event or ongoing cause.
