Rosen Hotels and The Adam Michael Rosen Foundation recently hosted the inaugural “Sock It To Cancer” fundraising event at Rosen Shingle Creek on Dec. 6 in memory of Adam Michael Rosen, Harris Rosen’s 26-year-old son who passed away on November 23, 2018 due to brain cancer.

Local restaurants generously provided creative culinary dishes and signature holiday drinks, Rockin’ Robin spun tunes and close to 30 local charities uniquely showcased their missions through cheerfully decorated holiday trees.

Guests voted on their favorite tree one new pair of socks at a time, with A Gift for Teaching winning the tree competition receiving a $5,000 check from the foundation.

The event gathered hundreds of new socks now provided to Orlando’s homeless and raised awareness of Central Florida’s giving community, providing inspiration for generosity during this holiday season.
