Rocking for a children's cause


The Haverhill Gazette

---- — What do a pro wrestling legend, a rock band, food vendors and crafts makers have in common?

They are all committed to helping children who lose limbs in accidents or due to medical conditions.

And they came together to raise money for those youngsters on Saturday, as the Leaving Eden Rockfest 2013 took over the grounds of Winnekenni Castle.

The all-day event benefited the 50 Legs Foundation, which provides prosthetics for children. Pro Wrestling Hall of Famer Jimmy Hart, former member of the ‘70s band The Gentrys, performed, along with the headliner band Leaving Eden.

The event had a Renaissance theme, with food, crafts and activities for children.
