On April 8, Rocco traveled north for the Pennsylvania Governor's Art Awards, which were held at York's Strand-Capitol Performing Arts Center. Among the evening's honorees were visual artist Jeff Koons, bluegrass musician Del McCoury, and arts advocate Caroline Nunan.

Rocco was also a winner earlier that day: After the Chairman's afternoon keynote address to the York arts community, Mayor C. Kim Bracey presented him with the Key to York, and a member of the York Revolution baseball team gave Rocco his own Revolution jersey. Rocco's host for this trip was Congressman Todd Russell Platts---who headed off to coach Little League at the conclusion of the afternoon event.
