About Rock the Casa
The mission of Dan Ashley's Rock the Casa is to provide support for community benefit programs that provide important services to youth in need. The foundations culture is based upon the basic belief that all youth in our community should have access to health, education, and recreational opportunities regardless of race, gender or economic status.
More Than Just an Event, "It's a Mission."
Rock the Casa is our highest visibility event not only providing the organization with much needed funds, but also getting our name in front of thousands of potential volunteers, which is the lifeblood of our work with abused and neglected children. Most remarkably, Dan Ashley has created Rock the Casa so that it is truly philanthropic. We could not be more grateful for the support of Rock the Casa.
Started in 2015 by ABC 7 San Francisco News Anchor Dan Ashley, Rock the Casa is a labor of love combining Dan's passions in music, philanthropy, community, and helping children in need.
The annual Rock the Casa benefit concert has raised over $150k to support CASA of Contra County and Friends of Camp Concord. The event has sold-out 2 years in a row and will continue to grow in order to help more kids and make the world a little bit brighter.
The inaugural Rock the Casa concert was held in June 2015 and was billed as "an evening of music to support children in need." That night before capacity crowd, legendary rocker Eddie Money took the stage. The night was an overwhelming success and set the groundwork for the next concert in March of 2016. That night, multi-platinum band REO Speedwagon performed for a sold out concert experience not typically seen in the quaint city.
From its inception, Rock the Casa has had tremendous sponsor support from top-tier companies and charitable foundations including the Simpson Family, John Muir Health, Taube Philanthropies, Mt. Diablo Recycling, San Jose Sharks Foundation, Wells Fargo, Phillips 66, Cole European, Scott Valley Bank, Mancini's Sleepworld, PG&E, DVC, Stiffel, and many others.
Dan Ashley's Rock the Casa has created a winning combination. Great music, community support, and corporate sponsorship are all working in harmony to benefit two robust organizations that are dedicated to serving children in need; Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) and Friends of Camp Concord.
