Doobie Brothers concert Oct. 2 at Santaluz to benefit children’s foundation

The Doobie Brothers will perform at the Santaluz Club on Oct. 2 to raise funds for a sophisticated electronic mon-itoring system for the Hospital Infantil de las Californias.

This monitoring system will track usage of medicine and equipment in the facility’s surgery center.

Funds raised at the previous concert paid for the purchase of surgical equipment that drastically reduced wait times for specialized procedures.

The “Concert for the Kids” will feature four-time Grammy-winning and legendary rock band the Doobie Brothers. With their harmony-rich vocal- and guitar-driven style, the Doobie Brothers have sold more than 40 million albums — three multiplatinum, seven platinum and 14 gold albums. Their “Best of the Doobie Brothers” (1976) has sold more than 12 million copies and is a rare “diamond” record.

A crowd of 1,000 is anticipated at the event, which includes a gourmet dinner, “copter drop,” live and silent auction and special opening act. The humanitarian hospital provides care for children from the “megaregion” of San Diego County, Baja California and beyond. Tickets can be purchased at

The Foundation for the Children of the Californias is part of a tri-national collaboration among philanthropies in the United States, Mexico and Canada, which for more than 20 years has provided needed medical care and disease prevention education to children of the border region through critical support of the Hospital Infantil de las Californias. The facility is next to the U.S. border (one-half mile into Baja California, Mexico). Visit
