Key to the Cure 2013

Saks 5th Avenue & Cleveland Clinic Team Up

On October 17th, we were selected to help contribute production, a photo opportunity and entertainment for “Key to the Cure“. This fundraising event was put on by the Cleveland Clinic and Saks 5th Avenue to help raise money and awareness for women’s cancers. A cocktail reception with drinks from Society Lounge, live entertainment, a fashion show, makeovers, and exclusive swag all on one night only at the Beachwood Saks Fifth Avenue.

Here’s what Cleveland Clinic’s Laura Hoffman had to say about our contribution:

Rock the House continues to amaze me with their ideas for events I am working on with them.  RTH’s creativity, endless energy, and passion for producing outstanding events really showed through at Key to the Cure.  From the moment you pulled in and saw the large pink ribbon illuminated on the building, you knew you were stepping into a remarkable event.  Saks Fifth Ave. looked beyond amazing, the music set the vibe for the evening, and the guests loved having their picture taken at the step and repeat.  Beyond just the ideas they bring to the table, the RTH staff are always positive and never say no.  They always make it happen and make it ROCK!

Rock The House Wins a World Class Customer Service Award!

For the Rock The House Team, June 8, 2010 offered us a reason to celebrate. After a long and thorough application process, we were recognized at Smart Business Magazine’s 2010 World Class Customer Service Awards, presented by Metro Lexus. Rock The House staff members were thrilled to be guests at this prestigious event.


RTH full time staff members, Matt Radicelli, Jeff Kutz and Jessica Goodworth arrived in style during cocktail hour-where we were kindly greeted by old friends and people we had not yet met. While sipping on top-shelf beverages and taking bites of the fantastic finger food- provided by Executive Caterers at Landerhaven, we were also offered the opportunity to mix and mingle with other professionals with whom we don’t normally get to hang out with, such as:

Skoda Minotti

Cleveland Clinic

Cleveland Metroparks Zoo

Corporate College

Flique Creative

Le Chaperon Rouge

Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage

Your Teen Magazine

The awards ceremony consisted of hilarious banter between the hosts- Metro Lexus’s Dan Pyle and John R. DiJulius of The DiJulius Group. We enjoyed hearing them crack jokes, while watching behind-the-scenes video coverage of all of the companies’ interviews.

While only some Rock The House staff members were able to attend the event, all of us were on a mission this year to offer over-the-top customer service to our clients, colleagues and fellow staff members. We have developed a customer service system that is unheard of in our industry – if it’s not right… it’s free!
