Jason Mraz and Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty were just a few of the big names to take part in the event.

The annual event also features a Rock and Roll auction that raises thousands for Blythedale.

Last year's benefit raised more than $90,000. This year, proceeds will support Blythedale’s Graduate Medical Education Program which provides education and training for the next generation of medical professionals. The goal this year was to raise $100,000.

The hospital is also welcoming any and all donations that will help patients have a merry Christmas.
