See Rock City (SRC), Inc. presented Emily’s Power for a Cure (EPFAC) with a $2,000 donation from their Fairytale Nights event, at Tucker’s Trek on Sunday.

 

"Our community partnerships are an important part of continuing the legacy of generosity that has lived through three generations of Rock City's ownership,” said SRC President Susan Harris.

“We are proud to partner with Emily's Power for a Cure for our spring break evening event Fairytale Nights, because fighting childhood cancer takes superhuman courage and strength. This local foundation funds critical research and provides direct support for families battling neuroblastoma, one of the deadliest of all childhood cancers. It is an honor to help them raise both funds and awareness, as well as having their families attend Fairytale Nights each year."
