A PUB AND A CLUB WITH A CAUSE
There is a special look on the face of a person who has walked into Big Rock Pub for the first time – a look of awe and surprise. It is one of the best parts of being a Big Rock Pub team member. We assure you that what you are witnessing is a true labor of love. Every single instrument, piece of art and memorabilia was individually purchased and hung by owner, Ken Hanna. Yes, he really does love the music and its history… A LOT! But there’s more to it than that. Not too long ago, Ken lost his brother to cancer, so many of the autographed guitars you see are for sale, with all of the profits going to Desert Cancer Foundation. Desert Cancer Foundation is the only nonprofit organization in the Coachella Valley that provides financial assistance to qualified local patients in the midst of cancer screenings and treatments. Every dollar donated translates into $10 of cancer treatment. In our first months of opening, we raised over $40,000 for DCF, and that number doubled in our second year. We’ve also helped raise thousands of dollars for other local charities, It’s good to know that we are making a difference. You can feel good too, knowing that by supporting Big Rock Pub, your supporting your community as well.
