The Reid O’Leary Charitable Trust Presents “Rock-The-Bay 2022”
Support your local community and come join us at Black Barn Amphitheatre on November 19th to “Rock the Bay”
“2022 is the inaugural Rock-the-Bay annual concert featuring Kiwi Rock Legends ‘Devilskin’, triple platinum selling “The Feelers” and the up-and-coming Kiwi rock trio “Capital Theatre”
100% of the profits from the event are being donated to the Reid O’Leary Charitable Trust, to help reduce the occurrence of youth suicide in Hawke's Bay by raising awareness and providing education. 

The trust has a purpose to create and make readily available a digital platform to help educate young people on how to self-manage their emotions and seek support when they most need it. We believe that prevention is the key to having a tangible impact on NZ’s youth suicide rate, and that early identification of poor thought patterns and the ability to reverse them are critical skills that will help improve the mental health and wellbeing of our young people.    
Come along, enjoy yourself and support the cause!
