Solana Beach students will hold a youth rock concert and benefit on Friday, May 11.
Four youth bands will come together to perform at this extraordinary event. Bands including Last Minute, Dropping the Slushy, The Indecisives, and The Styrotones will rock-out to raise money for Surfaid International, a nonprofit organization that helps people with malaria prevention, health education, clean water projects, and emergency preparedness in remote villages of Indonesia.
“Since our band formed a year ago, we have not had many opportunities to perform. I thought it would be great to create a venue for local youth bands, and help others at the same time,” said Natasha Rosenthal, 12, the event organizer. Local sponsors have donated items from a Firewire surfboard to Belly Up tickets, all being raffled off at the event.
Come support this great event on Friday, May 11, at the Skyline Elementary Activity Center, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for children. This is sure to be an event that all family members will enjoy.
