Come Rock for a Cause!

Your support of Hope Rocks allows Faith’s Lodge to continue to help families retreat, reflect and renew during the darkest hours of their lives — those spent mourning the death of a child or caring for a child with a medically complex condition. Faith’s Lodge offers a safe haven where families are connected with those who truly understand and gives them the opportunity to create lasting friendships, support networks and memories as grieving turns into healing.

Honorary Chair Couple

In our ninth year, we are pleased to have former NHL and Minnesota Wild player Jordan Leopold and his wife Jamie as our Honorary Chair Couple. After years of silence about their own loss of a child, they will share their story publicly at Hope Rocks.

Featuring Brat Pack Radio!

Minnesota-based Brat Pack Radio has performed across the globe, turning heads with a polished, high energy Supershow that can only be described as seriously fun. Mixing top-shelf musical performances with spoof and carnival theatrics, this is anything but typical cover band fare, and it shows — first and foremost — through the personalities of the band.
