On May 3 a group of students from the UW-River Falls hosted a benefit concert, 'Rock n' Stock' at Juniors Bar and Grill in downtown River Falls. The event featured performances by six local artists -- while there was no cover charge attendees donated $650 in cash donations as well as $100 worth of groceries. All of the donations that were received were donated to The River Falls Food Pantry.

Rock n' Stock was initially created as an alternative to a final exam for the non-profit marketing class. Class professor David Bonko proposed students could either plan and execute an event that would benefit a local non-profit organization or have a typical final exam.

The students eagerly chose to plan their own fundraising event and from this decision, the idea for Rock n' Stock was formed.
