since 2008

They say that music heals through its language of the soul, and nothing could be truer for this cause. Composed of a group of inspirational musicians and skillful performers, the artists behind ROCK4RV have donated their time and talents to raise funding to find a cure for CJD, a rare and fatal brain disease that took the life of Robert (Bob) Vitanza in 2008. Bob was a great man who positively affected the lives of many. Since 2009, this annual concert has raised enough funding for CJD research to become the record holder for the largest individual fundraising drive in the 25 year history of the CJD Foundation.
Please explore the site, join the experience and make a difference!

About CJD and the Cause

2020 Fundraising Drive

Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) is a rare, rapidly progressive neurodegenerative disease, one of several Prion Diseases caused by prion proteins that misfiled in the brain.  There is no treatment or cure and the disease is invariably fatal.
The Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease Foundation (CJDF) is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization founded in 1984 with the mission to support families affected by Prion Disease, raise awareness, and support medical education and research.  

Welcome to the 2020 annual fundraising drive in memory of Robert (Bob) Vitanza, who succumbed to Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) in 2008. Throughout the 12-year history of this event, and thanks to the help of many, ROCK4RV has become the #1 "family fundraiser" (as conducted by a family of a deceased loved one) in the 26-year history of the CJD Foundation! You all ROCK!

Please continue to support by making a tax deductible donation. All proceeds will be donated directly to the CJD Foundation Inc (, a 501(c)(3) organization and, specifically, for research grants to find a cure for this rare and fatal brain disease.

Please also feel free to spread the word and thank you for your continued support and generosity!

In 1935, a post-Prohibition tavern named Colony Grill opened in an Irish immigrant neighborhood in Stamford, Connecticut. Since then, Colony has become famous for what is now its only menu offering: a one-of-a-kind, thin-crust pizza that is best served with the signature “hot oil” topping.

We know what you are thinking…Irish pizza? Grill?

The local Irish crowd – and anyone else who visited Colony – seemingly could not get enough of this unique pizza, which was made even more appealing when drizzled with a spicy, full-of-flavor, pepper-infused creation simply called: hot oil.

The original owners of Colony were indeed Irish...
