Boca Raton, FL (February 12, 2019)—Boca West Children’s Foundation announced the schedule of events for its “Battle for the Kids Foundation Days.” The Foundation will host its 7th Annual Golf Challenge on April 1 and will present its Concert for the Children featuring a “Battle of the Bands II: The Fab Four and Remember When Rock Was Young” on April 2 at Boca West Country Club.  

 The Fab Four brings the greatest Beatles hits. Founded in 1997 by Ron McNeil, The Fab Four received an Emmy Award in 2013 for their PBS special. This stage show includes three costume changes representing every era of the Beatles ever-changing career. This tribute to the Beatles has amazed audiences all over the world, including Japan, Malaysia, Hong Kong, The United Kingdom, Germany, Mexico and Brazil, performing classics including “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “Yesterday,” “A Day In The Life,” “Penny Lane,” “Here Comes The Sun,” and “Hey Jude.”

Remember When Rock Was Young celebrates the music of Elton John with a spectacular, musical journey celebrating the decades of chart-topping hits of Sir Elton John, including “Benny and the Jets,” “Philadelphia Freedom,” and “Crocodile Rock,” just to name a few. Hailed as “a top notch performer” by Daily Variety, award-winning actor/singer, Craig Meyer, uses his uncanny musical abilities to celebrate the character, costumes and charisma of the famed pianist and singer.

Gates open at 6 p.m. and performances begin at 8 p.m. Tickets are $150.  All ticket proceeds directly aid partner organizations.  The concert will be held rain or shine.
