Rockin’ Rosie is the Rose Guild’s annual fundraising event. Each year “Rosie” rocks a different theme and attendees let out their inner performer by dressing up and cutting loose. The event offers dinner, dancing, silent and live auctions, fun and fabulous fundraising. The event is known for its light-hearted spirit and is a fun way to get out and have a good time in support of family-oriented performing arts in Omaha.
