Sun, surf, sounds and good causes – all things we dig.
Rob Machado – the legendary surfer, environmental activist and musician-- has put together a stellar lineup for the Second Annual benefit concert for the Rob Machado Foundation. which will take place on Monday, November 11, at The Belly Up in Solana Beach, California. The show sold out very fast, so consider making a donation to Rob's foundation.
Jason Mraz will be performing acoustic at this intimate event and The Goo Goo Dolls frontman John Rzeznik, who played last year's sold-out RMF concert, will return for a special solo acoustic set. Breakout Los Angeles band Run River North round out the bill. Doors will open at 7PM. and the show will begin at 8PM.
"I'm excited to be hosting a second RMF benefit concert. I'm honored that Jason, John and Run River North are supporting us," says Rob Machado. "The proceeds from our first event enabled us to do a lot - we've brought gardening programs to San Diego schools and just last month we installed new trash bins at Cardiff Seaside Beach, replacing the rusted old cans that gave seagulls easy access to trash that would then wind up back on the beach - so I can't wait to see how this night unfolds."
Proceeds from the evening will benefit the Rob Machado Foundation, a California-based 501c(3) non-profit private foundation. Founded in 2004, RMF was created to support charities dedicated to environmental programs worldwide. Its primary mission is to provide funding and initiate educational programs focused on helping children understand their contribution towards a healthy earth.
Any Cali peeps planning to support this event?
