Concert for the Kids
Beatles vs. Stones
On October 6, 2018, two internationally renowned tribute bands, “The Beatles for Sale” and “The Hollywood Stones,” performed the rock n’ roll legendary classics at The Paddock, Del Mar Fairgrounds to raise awareness and funds for the only specialized pediatric medical facility in northern Baja California, Hospital Infantil de las Californias (HIC). The rock concert fundraiser was a huge success and helped raise more than $250,000 for much needed state-of-the-art surgical equipment for the Hospital. In addition, concert fundraising efforts provided support for the Hospital’s “Program for Infant Patients” (Programa de Apoyo a Pacientes Infantiles) and operational support for the Foundation for the Children of the Californias (FCC).
Approximately 400 HIC supporters attended the concert, which included dinner stations, opportunity drawings, as well as a live and silent auction. Thanks to everyone who attended and participated in the concert fundraising efforts, children requiring medical attention from both sides of the Baja California/San Diego border will get the care they need, regardless of income.
