There were plenty of people out having a fun time in downtown Wilmington Friday night, but one group did it for a good cause. The annual Rock for the Cure event took place at Reel Cafe. It is a breast cancer benefit concert sponsored by UNCW's Communication Studies Society. Proceeds go to the New Hanover Regional Medical Center Foundation's Pink Ribbon fund. Joyce Glicker shared her story of living with breast cancer and said it is rewarding to speak at events. "It's really overwhelming. I've spoken at a couple of different ones and every time it just gives me hope and that's what I hope, that my story will give other women hope out there that you can live with this disease,” she said. A band of UNCW professors called The School Boys provided the tunes.
