SAMMY HAGAR, MATT SORUM To Join Little Kids Rock's 10th-Anniversary Celebration At Facebook HQ

On Saturday, September 29, Sammy Hagar (CHICKENFOOT, VAN HALEN, MONTROSE) and Matt Sorum (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES, THE CULT) will be at Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, California to support music education at the inaugural "Rock Their World Celebration", a fundraiser and celebration of national nonprofit Little Kids Rock's decade of service, restoring and revitalizing music education for disadvantaged public schools nationwide. More information on this event is available here.

Little Kids Rock is a leading nonprofit provider of free musical instruments and music classes to underprivileged children. Started by a single Bay Area teacher in California in 2002, it has since grown to attract the support of over 1,200 public school teachers who have proactively banded together to provide free, Little Kids Rock music classes to children in their schools. Over 200,000 public school children in 24 cities in 12 states have since benefited from the program.

Little Kids Rock is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization that transforms children's lives by restoring and revitalizing music education in public schools. Little Kids Rock was founded in San Francisco in 2002 by David Wish, an elementary school teacher who had grown frustrated with the lack of music education funding at his school. Today, Little Kids Rock is one of the leading nonprofit providers of free lessons and instruments to underprivileged children in U.S. public schools, and has served more than 200,000 students at over 1,200 schools in 24 cities nationwide. Little Kids Rock honorary board members include Taboo of the BLACK EYED PEAS, Joe Satriani, Bonnie Raitt, Slash, Paul Simon, B.B. King and Ziggy Marley.
