Switchfoot Headlining Kids Helping Kids Fundraiser


Kids Helping Kids announced on Monday that Switchfoot will headline its annual concert fundraiser at the Granada Theatre on 1/12. A nonprofit run by San Marcos High School students, Kids Helping Kids has raised over $750,000 for child-related causes global (the Ubumwe Center in Rwanda), local (The Unity Shoppe), and super-local (funeral costs for San Marcos student Sergio Romero who was hit by a car and killed on Milpas Street last year).
