Rocking for Mom's House

A local non-profit held an unconventional marathon event Saturday to raise money.
 
The annual Rocker-thon for Mom's House had people rock in rocking chairs to help fund its services. The organization provides child care for low-income single parents who are enrolled in school full time.

Organizers say events like this are rewarding for everyone involved.

"Best thing about it is we can meet our supporters face to face and thank them for all the support that they've given to Mom's House," said Diane Avery, co-founder of Mom's House.
 
Mom's House has an upcoming fundraiser in July. It will be hosting a golf tournament at the Links at Hiawatha Landing. To learn more about the organization visit momshouse.org
