Buchanan Street Partners and the real estate firm's foundation, Buchanan Children's Charity, are looking for real estate professionals wanting to rock out to attend at an April 20 benefit concert featuring Cheap Trick.
The show, to be held at the House of Blues in Anaheim, Calif., will be the fifth concert partially underwritten by Buchanan Street Partners to benefit Music Matters, a program created in partnership with the Orange County Community Foundation to bring back music programs in Orange County public schools.
Some of the proceeds also go to Buchanan Children's Charity, which works to improve the lives of and educational opportunities for children.
Past shows have featured such rock luminaries as Crosby, Stills & Nash; Third Eye Blind; Goo Goo Dolls; and Blues Traveler, said Robert S. Brunswick, CEO of Newport Beach, Calif.-based Buchanan Street Partners.
Mr. Brunswick declined to give the foundation's size, but he said it has donated $2.2 million total since it was founded in 2007. “We want to build a culture ... as a firm that provides good corporate stewardship and gives back to the community,” he said.
The annual concert has turned into the foundation's “signature event,” he said. Last year's concert raised $225,000 for the music program.
The fundraiser “is built around the industry, and we make a night of it.” Mr. Brunswick said.
