The House of Blues Music Forward Foundation is celebrating its milestone 30th anniversary in a big way.
The nonprofit organization under Live Nation aims to inspire youth and build careers in a more inclusive music industry by providing scholarships, workforce opportunities, relief funds and more. To date, the Music Forward Foundation has provided more than $42 million in support and aid. To honor 30 years of giving back, the foundation will be hosting two major fundraising events. The Music Forward Brunch will take place on October 1 at the Hollywood Bowl, before the inaugural Celebrity Golf Tournament will take over the El Caballero County Club in Tarzana, Calif. on October 2.
The brunch will honor people in music industry who spread a positive impact by moving their communities, industry and society forward. Guests will enjoy a brunch buffet curated by James Beard Award-Winning chef Suzanne Goin and restauranteur Caroline Styne, while enjoying performances from some of Music Forward’s alums.
The Celebrity Golf Classic will allow players to meet youth from Music Forward Foundation programs on-site. Following the tournament, golfers, sponsors and guests can enjoy dinner, cocktails and a live performance.
“Live Nation has backed Music Forward since day one, and we congratulate them on 30 years of helping youth discover and build careers in live music. The industry is growing and diversifying faster than ever, which means there are even more opportunities to support the next generation and we look forward to continuing our work together,” says Michael Rapino, President and CEO of Live Nation Entertainment, in a press statement.
