Rock the LUP Benefit-Saturday April 14th, 2012 RockN’ Joes in Point Pleasant Beach

“Rock the LUP” was created in November 2010 by local Singer/Songwriter and JAM Award Nominee Catherine Wacha. Catherine started “Rock the LUP” because she was diagnosed with lupus in 2001 and wanted to help raise money for research and awareness of the disease.
