The Jerry Garcia Foundation will partner with the Hard Rock Cafe San Francisco to present a December Holiday concert to benefit WhyHunger and the IMAGINE THERE’S NO HUNGER campaign. The concert will take place at the San Francisco outpost of Hard Rock Cafe on December 18.
The event will feature special guest appearances by Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead, 17-year-old guitar prodigy Corby Pryor, Rainbow Full of Sound and Keystone Revisited. Famed artist Stanley Mouse is creating poster art for the Holiday Benefit, while Wavy Gravy will serve as MC for the concert.
Proceeds from tickets sold will benefit the IMAGINE THERE’S NO HUNGER campaign. Inspired by John Lennon and his iconic song “Imagine,” the global campaign strives to turn his dream of a world with no hunger into a reality. For the eighth year, Yoko Ono Lennon joins Hard Rock International and WhyHunger in support of that mission. Proceeds from Hard Rock’s campaign will directly benefit WhyHunger and its grassroots partners worldwide, working to advance long-term solutions to hunger and poverty by supporting community-based organizations that empower individuals and build self- reliance.
In a press release Jerry Garcia Foundation co-founder Keelin Garcia noted, “We have so much gratitude to all those coming together to raise awareness and support for this great cause. Music and the arts continue to change the world for the better.” Fellow co-founder of The Jerry Garcia Foundation Manasha Garcia added, “Compassion creates peace. When human needs for sustenance and nourishment are met, we move toward a more peaceful planet. We are honored to share the arts to support John and Yoko’s vision of peace through the IMAGINE campaign. The Jerry Garcia Foundation supports artistic, environmental and humanitarian causes, and working with Hard Rock Cafe San Francisco on IMAGINE THERE’S NO HUNGER makes perfect sense for us.”
