Roots Rock Racks Up for Women of W.O.R.T.H.

January 30, 2015


The Roots Rock for Women’s Lives concert last weekend was right nice! The 400 Block Bar was loaded with folks who were ready to rock to Atomic Boogie, The Holler, and The Hothouse Peaches. The fun started for me earlier that week on The Northwest Georgia Music Hour as we were joined by The Holler, who put on their first acoustic performance, and good friend Kristen Sheeley representing the Women of W.O.R.T.H. clinic. You can listen to the show anytime on the MullinsMania Radio Archives.

Then of course, on Saturday night folks rolled out in multitudes to support the cause and shake the floor. Kristen was kind enough to give us a review of how it went for the clinic…

“Thank you to all of you who made our 3rd Annual Roots Rock for Women’s Lives benefit concert on 1/24/15 a success!! Special thanks to Chad Vaillencourt (Atomic Boogie) who stepped up in 2013 to organize the first Roots Rock and has done a spectacular job putting together 3 successful events. Thanks to the Hot House Peaches (who made their Rome debut on Saturday and rocked the house), The Holler and Atomic Boogie for rocking out to support Women of W.O.R.T.H., Inc.! As always, we’d also like to thank La Scala and the 400 Block Bar for hosting the event, as well as Bryan Mullins and the NWGA Music Hour on 95.7 The Ridge and Nelle Reagan on WRGA for promoting the event!
This year’s Roots Rock raised $1,270 for Women of W.O.R.T.H., Inc.–the most we’ve raised yet at this event! The money raised will increase Women of W.O.R.T.H.’s capacity to provide reduced cost and free clinical services for individuals who cannot pay for the cost of their visit. Women of W.O.R.T.H., Inc. is a non profit health clinic in Rome that provides low-cost reproductive and preventive healthcare for over 2,000 women and men in our community. To learn more about our services, please visit or call (706) 232-3408.”

So thanks a lot to all you kind hearted rock & rollers! See you out and about another time!
