A rockin’ fundraiser to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association.

Memory Rock Chicago was created in 2006 by Steve Monroe, Chicago author and commercial real estate consultant. ​With no prior connection to the disease, Monroe witnessed the devastating toll it took on his colleague​ as she lost her father to Alzheimer’s, and then ​cared for her ​mother who was diagnosed shortly thereafter. This experience compelled him to take action. He organized a committee of friends to host a fundraiser, and quickly learned many of them were also impacted by the disease. The event, which celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2016, has raised more than $500,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association since its inception.​ ​The annual rock concert ​benefit is held at Joe’s Bar on Weed St., and has featured local bands such as, Dr. Bombay and Liquidated Damages. ​Guests enjoy an open bar, live entertainment, and access to a rockin’ raffle and auction. ​Memory Rock continue​s​ to grow thanks to the overwhelming support of dedicated committee members and generous sponsors.


Ticket price includes access to open bar, live entertainment, and an incredible silent auction and raffle!
