Marquita Rugless, the brainchild behind Rochester’s Official Connection bka R.O.C. Events, has always had a flair for event design. She began producing fashion productions at the age of 17. Being extremely connected with people from different industries locally, Marquita became the one to ask when you needed something! In 2010, she decided to make her company official and that’s when Rochester’s Official Connection was born. For a few years, Marquita produced the large-scale fashion event, ROC the Runway, which brought out hundreds of people. Throughout the years, Marquita has continued to service clients by producing private events. Most recently, She has expanded her horizons and fiercely broken into the balloon design industry. With continuing education, R.O.C. Events is quickly becoming Rochester’s premier event company!
