The Friends of Brad Memorial Foundation (FOBMF) is gearing up for the 2014 BradtoberFest Run/Rawk/Crawl! It will happen on Sunday, October 5. We’d like to invite your participation!

We’re accepting silent auction, cash, volunteer/band incentive donations. BradtoberFest will feature local music, craft beer, and outdoor culture in an event that will benefit young local musicians.

What are the benefits of being involved?

  • Support programs for young musicians in Minnesota!
  • It’s a fun way to promote your business! Your contribution will be acknowledged via our website and social media networks.
  • If your donation is valued at $500 or more (and you sign on early), your business’ name and/or logo will appear in the event’s promotional materials (t-shirt, webpage, ads, posters, and other promotions).


The Friends of Brad Memorial Foundation exists to honor Duluth percussionist Brad Rozman, and to celebrate and cultivate young Minnesota musicians. Here’s how we’re making an impact:

  • Twice we contributed to the Music Resource Center-Duluth (where Brad lived/played in his final years)
  • For four years in a row, we’ve given scholarships to high school students in rural Northeastern Minnesota (where Brad grew up)
  • We’ve established a visiting artist fund at St. Cloud State University (Brad’s alma mater)


Please note: Friends of Brad is a 501(c)(3) organization. As such, your contribution is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide!
