Rockdale Cares hosted its annual fundraiser on July 31, called Fiesta. The dinner and silent auction raised $66,000 dollars for the organization, thanks in part to an anonymous donor who matched the money raised up to $33,000. The money raised will go towards keeping the Haven House Respite Home open year round, to give those with developmental disabilities a place to go when caretakers need a respite or break.
