Regional Distributors Founders, Tracy and David Scalen, Create Right By Your Side to Support Rochester's First Responders

Rochester, NY  |  March 2, 2020


Tracy and David Scalen, founders of Regional Distributors, Inc., have created Right By Your Side to support Rochester's first responders. The mission of Right By Your Side is to support and increase awareness of the service and sacrifice made by Rochester's law enforcement, firefighters and EMS personnel who dedicate their lives to keeping the community safe. 

Right By Your Side is a 501(c)(3) organization that provides support and financial assistance to first responders suffering from physical and/or emotional injuries related to their performance of duty. Founded in 2020, Right By Your Side originated after Rochester Police Officer, Denny Wright, was attacked on duty. This act mobilized founders, David and Tracy Scalen, who are longtime friends of Denny Wright, to action to raise the necessary funds for first responders and bring awareness to the community. “Our local law enforcement and first responders dedicate their lives to keeping our community safe. Right By Your Side was started to show gratitude for that sacrifice," shares David Scalen.

On Saturday, May 30, 2020, Right By Your Side presents Unsung Heroes: A Concert Benefiting Rochester First Responders featuring Night Ranger and Lou Gramm, with special performances from Own the Night, an Elvio Fernandes Camp ROC Star band and more. The inaugural event starts at 5:00 PM with family-friendly activities including delicious food by Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, exciting silent auction packages, a 50/50 raffle, and showcase of first responder units. Live music starts at 7:00 PM.

All proceeds benefit Right By Your Side in supporting local law enforcement, firefighters and EMS personnel who dedicate their lives to keeping our community safe — including honored guest, RPD Officer Denny Wright.

Tickets are available at the Great House of Guitars, The ROC Dome box office and Ticketmaster.com and concert sponsorships are available.
