Drumming and creative solutions to tight education budgets come together on April 4 at the Dean Brower Foundation Benefit Concert in Ventura, Calif. Cars for Causes is proud to be sponsoring the event.
We started this charity collaboration with Pulse Drumming, a Ventura, Calif. company, last year, sharing its vision of bringing art and music into Ventura area schools and with its specific purpose of serving at-risk youth and those with special needs.
Concert – Fun with a Purpose
And on April 4, the work comes to fruition, with a benefit concert by Konkoba, a multicultural ensemble that plays drums ranging from the familiar conga and dulcimer to the not-so-familiar Bougaraboo, Dan Mo and Tongue Drums. Also playing is Led-Zepplica.
Proceeds from the Benefit Concert go to the Dean Brower Foundation. There’s a story, both tragic and uplifting behind the concert and the Dean Brower Foundation’s work. See our Sept 18 blog for part of it; and see Pulse Drumming on YouTube for more.
If you happen to be in the Ventura area on April 4, spend a wonderful evening supporting a good cause. (Click here for concert times and details.)
