Rock & Brews partners with The Friendship Foundation for Camp Got Friends fundraiser

Rock & Brews locations in the Los Angeles area are entering the final month of their fundraising campaign with The Friendship Foundation, a nonprofit organization based in the South Bay, to raise funds for Camp Got Friends, a summer camp for special needs children and young adults. The rock-inspired, family friendly restaurant co-founded by Rock & Roll Hall of Famers and KISS front men Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley will be collecting donations for Camp Got Friends through the end of April.

Camp Got Friends attendees experience new and fun activities throughout the week, including music class, arts and crafts, cooking, sports, science experiments and field trips all over Los Angeles. Each camper is paired with a student volunteer, and together they share the experience and learn from each other.

Participating Rock & Brews locations include: Rock & Brews in El Segundo, 143 Main Street; Rock & Brews in Redondo Beach, 6300 S Pacific Coast Highway; and Rock & Brews in Buena Park, 7777 Beach Boulevard.

Guests interested in making a donation can add their desired amount to their bill in support of Camp Got Friends.

About The Friendship Foundation

The Friendship Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to making a difference in the lives of children with special needs and their families by providing social-recreational programs in the homes, schools and communities of the South Bay and surrounding areas. The foundation offers programs at little to no cost to encourage all families to become part of the Friendship Foundation community.

Through a peer-to-peer model, student volunteers are paired with children with special needs to engage in dynamic and fun activities. The children with special needs gain valuable social developmental skills while student volunteers gain leadership skills and an awareness of the special needs community. The foundation exists to bring joy and friendship to all children who participate and empowers them to maximize their potential.
