It’s back for its 2nd, awesome year!

Join NF North Central, once again, as they rock out to knock out NF on Saturday, November 11th! We've upped the entertainment factor in this upgraded iteration of our inaugural event and assembled an exciting evening of music, eats, and libations to raise NF awareness and funding for Neurofibromatosis research. Bring your friends downtown for the chance to kick back with a cocktail and enjoy the roots rock stylings of Rochester's own, Six Mile Grove.

Inspired by the bravery of their 5-year-old boy, Gus, Gregg & Becky Erickson established NF North Central—a non-profit member organization of NF Network—dedicated to finding treatments and a cure for neurofibromatosis by promoting research, education, awareness, and support services for those affected by NF.

ROTKONF 2.0 will take place at the historic Rochester Civic Theatre, nestled beside the Zumbro River in the heart of downtown Rochester.
