The Guys of Golden Crown Productions Bring Music to the Valley and Give Hope to Families in Need and Give Back to the Valley
For every story there is often a silver lining. In this case it is the partners of Golden Crown Productions; Don Harbour and Gregg Hassler, and the organization they have formed to fundraise for families in need, and give back to residents of the Inland Empire.
Part of the mission of Golden Crown Productions is to entertain by bringing top notch entertainment to the Valley for intimate and unforgettable concert experiences. The difference between them and other production companies is that Golden Crown work to give back. For example, their involvement with the Unforgettables Foundation. Recently they figured out a way to bring both the thrill of live music and mix it with philanthropy for a match that makes a difference to the families who need help the most.
The Unforgettables Foundation is an organization that has served families in over 66 cities in Southern California. They come in and help families at the worst time, when parents lose a child. Aside from the devastation, there also is the unforeseen burden of affording a dignified and respectful burial for their beloved child. The Unforgettables Foundation provides financial assistance to those families with limited resources to offset the costs of the financial arrangements. Assisted by Service Corporation International, which is an international service company, Timothy Evans and many friends of the Inland Empire of Southern California created the Unforgettables Foundation. This foundation is operated almost entirely by volunteers.
This is where Golden Crown Productions comes in. They coordinate concerts and events, and turn them into fundraising opportunities. They work to assist organizations like The Unforgettable Foundation. When they found out about this organization years ago they were deeply touched by the knowledge that tragedy does sometimes strike families with children and often those families are not ready financially. One of Golden Crowns main objectives was to start a company were a percentage of the proceeds went to a non-profit organization that truly needed it.
At one concert alone this fall Golden Crown Productions raised over $20,000. They have brought many different groups to the valley including The English Beat, Stan Ridgway, Antonio Ponterelli, Tommy Tutone, Berlin, and Benise. Golden Crown also works to donate and fundraise for the Rotary Club and California Family Life Center including donating tickets to many non-profits to assist in raising money and awareness.
Currently, the Golden boys at Golden Crown Productions are full of hope that their concerts and events will continue to be great venues for making a difference and giving back to their community.
