Adoption Rocks! A Musical Celebration

To celebrate International Adoption Month, The Long Center for the Performing Arts has scheduled a benefit concert and celebration called Adoption Rocks! It’s a benefit for The Gladney Center, a Texas organization that’s been providing adoption services for over 100 years.

This event was inspired by an Austin family’s adoption of their Ethiopian daughter last year. The family’s friends hosted a small live concert last November to raise money for the Ethiopian orphanage. It was such a great event, the organizers decided to do it again this year, only larger, and benefiting the Gladney Center, which is a licensed, not-for-profit agency that has been creating bright futures through adoption since 1889, and has become a global leader in providing adoption services.
