Riot Gives Back fuels inaugural Rock the Rooftop fundraiser

Rock The Rooftop, an inaugural charity concert under the stars on the W Hotel’s exclusive WET Deck, raised $55,000 with proceeds benefiting Make-A-Wish Arizona.

The December event, which featured performances by Bailey Zimmerman, Nate Smith and Loud Luxury, raised vital funds local organizations in its inaugural year benefitting Riot Gives Back, which shared the proceeds with Make-A-Wish Arizona.

Event committee members, including its co-founders John Creighton, Jason Adler and Dillan Micus, joined together with the Scottsdale Mayor and members of Scottsdale City Council Friday, Jan. 6, at the W Hotel to celebrate the organizations and present them with $27,500 donations.

“Rock The Rooftop is an event that brings a lot of good to so many people,” said Mr. Adler in a press release. “We are proud to be able to help these two charities in their important missions. John Creighton, Dillan Micus and I look forward to continuing the success of this charitable event for years to come.”

The funds donated to Riot Gives Back will benefit the organization’s mission to support first responders, military members and veterans and their families, and the compassionate care of children, the release states.

The funds donated to Make-A-Wish Arizona will help the organization continue to grant life-changing wishes for Arizona children with critical illnesses.

“Riot Hospitality Group is in five states and growing and that is a testament to Ryan and the group,” said Mayor Ortega. “And Scottsdale is home to Make-A-Wish. Today is about two wonderful homegrown, wonderful nonprofits assisting people with jobs and opportunities downtown and young lives that are still learning to walk or read. We are an amazing city.”

Mr. Hibbert echoed a similar sentiment.

“We are grateful to Rock The Rooftop for this amazing donation,” said Mr. Hibbert. “We are fortunate to be able to start a foundation that can help so many lives and we just getting started.”
