FORT LAUDERDALE, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 09/02/14 -- The 3rd Annual "Rock United" fundraiser to benefit the United Way of Broward County is set for Friday, Sept. 12 at Revolution Live (100 SW 3rd Ave, Ft. Lauderdale). This epic battle of bands pits local aspiring musicians in a rocking competition for greatness -- as well as to raise needed funds to support the United Way's community initiatives and services for those in need. Ft. Lauderdale entrepreneur K. Stephen Tsingas has joined as a "Woodstock Level" sponsor, contributing $1500 to the event. Tickets are priced at $20 GA / $50 VIP (which includes 2 complimentary drinks, a T-shirt, balcony seating and more). For more information visit http://www.unitedwaybroward.org.
"I'm excited to support this year's annual Rock United event," said Mr. Tsingas. "The Broward County United Way is an excellent organization dedicated to helping to improve our community. As a proud resident of Ft. Lauderdale, I love to do my part to support their mission."
For over 75 years, the United Way of Broward County has worked within the local community to identify the issues and needs most important to its residents. Through regular community conversations, they are able to find gaps in services that are critical to the community. Some of their programs include "Mission United" which helps returning military personnel re-acclimate to civilian life; "Pathway to Prosperity" which helps people earn, keep and grow assets; along with providing other essential services such as providing emergency food, clothing and shelter when necessary as well as maintaining substance abuse prevention programs and encouraging youth leadership.
The annual "Rock United" fundraiser is an excellent way for community members to help support the United Way of Broward County's efforts. For more information on the event, tickets or sponsorship information, contact Jennifer Lacker -- [email protected].
About K. Stephen Tsingas
Born in Greece, K. Stephen Tsingas is a prime example for a classic American rags-to-riches story. Moving to the United States at age 10, his family was scraping to get by and Steve, dedicated to attending college, financed his education through numerous small jobs -- from mowing lawns to repairing cars to delivering pizzas. Willpower and endurance paid off, and Tsingas eventually earned a BS degree in Mechanical Engineering from Widener University (Chester, PA) and eventually an MBA from the University of Maryland, as well as merits and certificates, including a Professional Engineer license. While working for the Atlantic City Electric Company in New Jersey, Tsingas was sent to Trenton to argue in public hearings for an electric vehicle program. Shocked to learn the efforts the major automakers made to quash the proposal, he founded his first company, City Power Marketing LLC, which grew to a leader in the power marketing and trading industry. In order to support the introduction of electric vehicles into the market place, Tsingas became an early adapter and purchased one of the first Nissan Leafs and then talked his wife into getting a TESLA Model S. He eventually settled in Fort Lauderdale, FL, where he still lives with his wife and two small children. He strives to be a valuable member of the community and is always ready to help those who are less fortunate than him.
