We got hold of her to ask if she had a ritual story like the ones that NPR's Kitchen Sisters collect. Her response was to say, let me think about it, ever so politely, like you imagine the kids must be in Des Moines, and hung up.

The Santa Cruz Sentinel

“At just 16, Jackie Partida and her Jackie Rocks Band have already logged 300 shows. The band won a national competition and will be returning to play at Great America this summer, but recent gigs closer to home have a special place in her heart. This summer the band will perform at all three of the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life events in Santa Cruz County. Jackie was involved in Relay even before she took to the stage."When I was 10 I lost my great uncle to cancer," and when her mother's co-workers asked them to join a team, they became part of the many volunteers who raise money and take turns walking during a 24-hour-event to support cancer services and research. And as serious as the group is about its music, it is just as sincere in its commitment to the fight against cancer."We've all lost someone who is close to us, a sibling, parent, family member or friend. It really affects us and makes it personal. We'll always want to be a part of [Relay For Life]" she said.”
