Foundation's Events and Activities

Keep Music Rockin' currently hosts two annual events each year in its efforts to help promote awareness of the importance of music in schools and to raise funds that allows the foundation to enhance and enrich the learning experiences of students.

Lenny Williams Golf Classic

Let's set the scene. It's early July. That thick blanket of fog is slowly lifting revealing a beautiful cobalt blue sky on another gorgeous East Bay day. To the west, San Francisco shimmers radiantly. To the east, the sun is rising over golden hills bringing with it warmth, anticipation and excitement. A gentle breeze alerts you that a great day is about to begin. And, indeed it is! For you and your friends are teed up at the beautiful golf links of Monarch Bay for the "The Fifth Annual Lenny Williams Golf Classic."

Whether you're a duffer or pro to the world of golf tournaments, it doesn't matter. What this is about is driving golf carts and golf balls down verdantly lush fairways, laying up on emerald greens, approaching the cup, and then sinking some awesome putts.

But that's just the game. Then there's the laughter, camaraderie, knocking back a couple cold brews or whatever your beverage pleasure is. Have a sandwich or two while you're playing your round and fudging your scorecard. Talk the talk at the 19th hole before dinner, bending legendary singer Lenny Williams or KBLX radio personality Antoine Davis or other musical artists ears about your terrific game, enjoy a great dinner which afterwards may have you winning either a raffle prize, silent auction gift, tourney award or, maybe, do all three. Who knows?

But as great fun as this day in early July is going to be, that's not why you're playing. No! There's something more important, bigger at stake that has you chasing around that little white ball. You're playing because YOU are committed to ensuring that quality music education in the San Leandro Unified School District continues and is funded.
