On September 29th, the Barney & Barney Foundation got its groove on and Rocked the Foundation once again. Back for its 7th year, the 2016 Rock the Foundation annual benefit concert proved to be our best one yet! From the cool tunes of headliner Atomic Groove to the fabulous silent auction packages to the interactive GIF photo booth, it was a night to remember. We’d like to thank all of our sponsors, attendees, donors, and volunteers for helping to make this event a smashing success.
In addition to all the fun, the Barney & Barney Foundation was fortunate enough to honor four inspiring San Diego non-profit organizations and awarded a total of $110,000 in grants. Since its inception in 2009, the Barney & Barney Foundation has awarded nearly $2 Million in charitable grants.
Women’s Resource Center received the largest grant of the evening— $50,000 —which will help support their mission. This organization is dedicated to providing the highest quality supportive services, counseling, shelter, and education to North San Diego County women, children, and men involved in or threatened by domestic violence or sexual assault. Fellow 2016 Grant Recipients included Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito, Junior Achievement of San Diego County, and Social Advocates for Youth who were each awarded $20,000 to continue their important work in the community. Check out pictures from the evening here.
