The Hope Rocks Festival which is free to the public, is completely self funded and is looking for the financial support of individuals, businesses and organizations who recognize the need to bring these deadly issues to light. Though the festival is free, it incurs massive expenses to operate. We need your help!


The Hope Rocks Riff is an attempt to use social media to raise awareness and education about the epidemic of death in our society resulting from addiction, suicide and associated mental health issues.

The Hope Rocks Riff allows you to honor a loved one who is in the battle, lost the battle or presently winning the battle. It is easy and fun!

  • Step One: Find a song, original or prerecorded with a favorite vocal or instrumental riff.
  • Step Two: Create a short video - Lip sync, air perform or actually perform a segment of the song featuring the riff. Remember to honor someone (anonymously), give song credit, and nominate three others
  • Step Three: Publish video and tag nominees
  • Step Four: Donate to the Hope Rocks Festival Project www.hoperocksny.com

All donations will be used to further the mission of the Hope Rocks Festival, Raising Your Awareness about Narcotics (RYAN) and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. All funds will be dispersed through the Sawyer Automotive Foundations 501c3 not-for-profit account.
