A local music tradition, SUITS THAT ROCK showcases local executives leaving the boardroom for the stage.

Under the event’s theme “Get Back!”, the concert featured a mix of Guest Suits and returning favorites, all with the same purpose in mind: raising funds to support The Carnegie which provides in-school and after-school and summer camp art programming to local students.

To date, SUITS THAT ROCK has raised more than $1,250,000.

“The Suits are proud to be able to provide event attendees a great and safe outdoor experience but most of all, we are so happy to have raised a record amount in support of The Carnegie,” said John Domaschko, SUITS THAT ROCK co-founder and executive committee member.

“Arts education at an early age helps children to develop in so many ways and each participating Suit can attest to its importance. Whether you’re a lawyer, doctor or corporate executive, the arts teach many valuable lessons that often translate into professional life.”

The 2021 event returned to in-person after the success of The Carnegie’s virtual campaign last year due to the pandemic.
