Post Date: 09-20-2018

Looking to dance and dine along the river while supporting a great cause? Then check out the annual fundraiser, Massey on the River, happening on September 21! Presented by our friends at VCU Massey Cancer Center and the Massey Alliance (its young professional board), their goal is to raise funds for supporting cancer research. With live music, tasty eats, and fun vibes, a stellar night awaits you right around the river from Rocketts Landing!

Endless Food and Drink Buffets

Yep! You read that detail right. Your ticket to the event gets you access to all-you-can-eat and all-you-can-drink specialties all night long! Enjoy a food buffet from Deep Run Roadhouse, featuring their Tex-Mex, BBQ, and comfort-food cuisine. And you can chase the scrumptious food down with a craft beer buffet, featuring local brews from Hardywood, Ardent Craft Ales, and The Veil. Fine selections of wine and non-alcoholic drinks will also be available.

Live Music and Dancing

Get ready to break it down with a dance party under the stars. You’ll enjoy live music by local yacht rock band, Three Sheets to the Wind, while the sounds of the James River serenade you in the background.

Silent Auction

Want to take your donation to the next level? Consider participating in their silent auction action! You’ll bid for exclusive experiential packages, such as a private dinner at your house, a champagne brunch for 10 people, or a cabin wine weekend in Louisa County, Va.
