OUR ORGANIZATIONS

San Pasqual Academy

San Pasqual Academy is a first-in-the-nation residential education campus that is both home and school to over 150 foster teens. The Academy was designed specifically for foster teens and provides a stable, caring home, a quality, individualized education, and the skills needed for independent living. The 238-acre campus features individual family-style homes, an on-site, accredited high school, a cafeteria, a technology and career information center, an auditorium, recreation fields, a gymnasium, a Health and Wellness Center, a Day Rehabilitation Clinic, and a swimming pool. Teens live and learn at the Academy, as they prepare for college and/or a career path.

Friends of San Pasqual Academy

As the needs of the campus are many, Friends of San Pasqual Academy was formed by caring volunteers to assist foster teens in their endeavor to become confident, productive, contributing, highly educated, successful adults. They provide teens a "normal high school experience" including dances, sports teams, cheerleading squads, clubs, graduation celebrations, as well as necessities like clothing, school supplies, computers, kitchen items, and academic scholarships. Fundraisers like this assist in these endeavors. Friends of San Pasqual Academy is dedicated to providing quality services and programs through resources that improve, empower and enrich the hopeful futures of these very deserving teens.

Museum of Making Music

The Museum of Making Music (MoMM) promotes and celebrates the power of music making in our lives. The Museum is a 501(c)(3) non-profit institution, a program division of the non-profit National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Foundation. The Museum is a vibrant, cultural destination that provides high quality exhibitions and programming to over 40,000 visitors; museum tours to almost 9,000 school children (3,000 of which come from schools where 95% of students are classified below the poverty level); weekly hands-on musical engagement to more than 150 adults; and unique on-site educational programs including workshops, lectures, family programming, and intimate world-class concerts serving over 6,000 attendees. Providing equal access to programs is central to our work. The Museum recently launched a music program at San Pasqual Academy. This is an additional component in the school's support strategy, providing participants not only with a safe haven to heal but also an opportunity to develop all-important life skills such as collaboration, commitment, trust, self-expression and listening skills…through music. An additional component to this program is the exploration of career options in the field of music. Fundraisers like this assist us in investing over $100,000 to support such educational initiatives.

Creedence Clearwater Revisited

Creedence Clearwater Revival founding members and Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Stu Cook and Doug “Cosmo” Clifford have been on quite a ride.  Following their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cosmo and Stu launched their Creedence Clearwater Revisited project in 1995 to once again perform live in concert the hit songs -- touchstones of a generation.  Since then, the legendary rhythm section has been thrilled by the outpouring of affection for their new band.   World tours and a platinum selling album Recollection followed.  The astounding response to the band has been driven in part by new generations of fans that, as Cosmo says, “weren’t even born when the music came out.” While, as udiscovermusic.com recently commented, it is the “rhythm section Doug Clifford’s drums and Stu Cook’s bass that is a hallmark of Creedence Clearwater Revival,” the boys did not take assembling the rest of the new group’s players lightly.  “In the beginning Cosmo and I decided that if we could find the musicians that could capture the sound and recreate what the music was about, we’d do it,” recalls Stu. As fans around the world can attest, Stu and Cosmo found the right players. Lead guitarist Kurt Griffey brings crowds to their feet and the front of the stage with his solos. He has recorded and toured with other notable musicians including members of the Eagles, Foreigner, the Moody Blues, Wings, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Santana and Journey. On lead vocal and rhythm guitar is Dan McGuiness. The purity, power and range of Dan’s soaring voice hits right to the heart. Multi-instrumentalist Steve Gunner rounds out the group. As Cosmo puts it, “Gun provides live all the overdubs that were on the records. - keyboard, acoustic guitar, percussion, harmonica and the high harmonies.”

Classic Rock Revisited critic Jeb Wright wrote about a Creedence Clearwater Revisited concert he attended.  “The true test of any concert is how the music makes you feel.  On this night, this writer walked away with a wonderful feeling, having just witnessed timeless, historical music, performed to perfection.

Creedence Clearwater Revisited not only looks to the past, performing iconic songs, they bring them to the modern day, reminding us all of the true importance of this music.”
