Girls Rock SB! Benefit Concert
Saturday February 23, 2013
GIRLS ROCK SB! ORGANIZES BENEFIT CONCERT TO RAISE MONEY FOR AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM AND
Girls Rock SB empowers girls through music to boost self-esteem
Girls Rock SB! (GRSB) will hold its first Spring Benefit Performance on February 23, 2013 at the Marjorie
Luke Theater starting at 7PM. The program, titled "Requisition," will showcase exciting collaborations of
song and dance created to raise funding and awareness for Girls Rock SB! There will also be a special
performance by rising star Meg Myers, a new talent under the management of Angelica Cob
(former head of creative and marketing for Capital Records). There will be a silent auction of
fabulous gifts, services, and one-of-a-kind experiences donated by generous sponsors.
Girls Rock SB! is a nonprofit organization that empowers young women through music and
provides girls with skills that will guide them through life; the program aims to boost self-esteem
through workshops, group activities, performances, and music lessons. GRSB provides young
girls with an environment that fosters creativity, self-confidence, and teamwork.
Jen Baron, executive manager of Girls Rock SB!, believes that, "This benefit show will not only
be an amazing performance to watch, but it will further showcase our goal to inspire young girls
and show them that they have the power to be great musicians."
The funds raised from the benefit will go towards the Girls Rock Camp and the after school
program. Girls Rock Camp is a one-week summer day camp that teaches girls ages 8-18 how
to play instruments, design band t-shirts, and how to rock n' roll. Camp classes are taught by
musicians who volunteer their time to help campers learn how play instruments. The dates for
2013 are June 10-July13th. Apply online at girlsrocksb.com. GRSB accepts payment plans and
provides financial aid for low-income participants.
Girls Rock SB!'s after school program is designed to teach girls how to play various band
instruments by application only. GRSB provides the musical instruments, as well as a gear loan
program where instruments can be rented out to Rock Camp community members when they
aren't being used at the summer camp.
