Jackie Greene, The Mother Hips, Jason Crosby & More Aboard For 2018 Blue Rose Foundation Benefit @ The Fillmore, SF June 9, 2018

All proceeds from the concert will go towards pre-school scholarships for at-risk children from economically disadvantaged families in keeping with The Blue Rose Foundation’s mission. This year’s concert is the fifth annual Blue Rose Foundation benefit. Here’s more information about The Blue Rose Foundation:

The Blue Rose Foundation believes that equal access to resources starts children on an early pathway to success, and strengthens families and communities. By awarding preschool scholarships to children from economically disadvantaged families, they foster a life-long love of learning and provide children with the tools to reach their full potential.

The Blue Rose Foundation was created to honor the memories of our family members, friends, teachers, and mentors. To pay tribute to those who inspired us, we support programs that give children the ability to reach new heights of success. Reaching at-risk children early is critical to this success.

In Sonoma County, where Blue Rose Foundation’s efforts are concentrated, approximately 15% of children live below the poverty line. Low-cost and free preschool programs are available for families in need, but demand far exceeds the supply. In 2011, there were over 100 more eligible children 5 years of age and younger, than there were available spaces in subsidized care programs. The Blue Rose Foundation aims to close that gap.
