Warren Hellman Memorial Concert- Ocean Beach, SF

15 Feb

ImagePeter’s Kettle Corn is proud to be participating in the Warren Hellman Memorial Concert on February 19th, 2012 to celebrate the life of one of San Francisco’s greatest Civic Leader, Warren Hellman. The event will be held at Ocean Beach (On the Great Highway (Hwy 1) between JFK Dr. & Lincoln Ave.)

Warren Hellman passed away late last year at the age of 77. He was a successful businessman who devoted the latter of his life to the belief of free music to the people. He funded the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival almost completely out of his own pocket every year since 2001, calling it his “selfish gift” to the city.

“What does move me is Philanthropic stuff…”- Warren Hellman

We, at Peter’s Kettle Corn, believe in the spirit of giving and are inspired by Warren Hellman’s generosity. Please join us in celebrating Warren Hellman’s life and enjoy one of his greatest gifts to the City.
