Mark your calendars for a very special evening of music June 20 to benefit KGO-TV ABC7 anchor Dan Ashley‘s Rock the CASA Foundation featuring legendary rocker Eddie Money.
Ashley’s foundation is getting ready for what will be an annual event, “Rock the CASA”, to be held at 8 p.m. at the Lesher Center for the Arts in Walnut Creek.
Also performing that evening will bePUSH, the Bay Area band for which Ashley is its lead singer; Soul Faiyah; and The Breedloves.
“I am thrilled to have signed legendary rocker Eddie Money for my inaugural ‘Rock the CASA’ event,” Ashley says. “We’re going to have a great time to support two great causes and I hope my media colleagues will come out and rock out and help out!”
Tickets for the event are now on sale. All proceeds benefit CASA, which stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates, and Friends of Camp Concord. Ticket prices range from $40 to $150. There is also a special VIP backstage meet-and-greet ticket priced at $250.
“I am so grateful and so pleased to have founded this new non-profit charity to help deserving Bay Area children in need,” adds Ashley, who anchors KGO-TV ABC7’s evening newscasts. “My hope is that Rock the CASA will be a fun annual event that music fans, and fans of doing good, will look forward to every year.”
CASA volunteers dedicate countless hours to the benefit of children in crisis. Their volunteerism requires extensive training and support.
Friends of Camp Concord gives young people one of the most meaningful camp experiences available in Lake Tahoe.
Through this organization, children who otherwise could not afford it will have the opportunity to enjoy a week in the wilderness just like anyone else.
The foundation is a California non-profit public charity, founded by Ashley. It benefits charitable organizations that serve children in need.
