The 2015 Rock the Oaks fundraiser for Oak Grove Center for Education, Treatment and the Arts, promises to be bigger and better than ever before.
In what has become a must attend event, three separate concerts will span Jan. 30-31 at The Bridge Church in Murrieta.
More than 60 local and regional musical artists and bands will perform live, according to a press release on the event.
Top draws include San Francisco-based Irish band The Shams, new-grass artists The Brewer Boys (“X-Factor USA,” “Next Great Family Band”), Noah Turner with Erik Turner of Warrant and Trevor Moran (“X-Factor,” Our2ndLife).
Proceeds from the concerts benefit the arts programs at Oak Grove Center for Education, Treatment and the Arts. The nonprofit, 24-hour residential, educational and therapeutic treatment center located in Murrieta treats 76 at-risk children who live on campus and 90-100 day students who attend its nonpublic schools. The organization’s Oak Grove at the Ranch, is located in Perris and serves an additional 50 students, the release stated.
“All three shows are fun. Friday night will be a great event to rock out, with upbeat music. A great way to get the weekend rolling,” said Gwyn Sanborn, co-host of the event, along with Holly Davis and Eric Warner.
“Tickets to the event are tax deductible, and unused tickets can be donated to sponsor a child from Oak Grove to attend the event, if you can’t go yourself,” Sanborn said.
