OKLAHOMA CITY — The Beach Boys, featuring Mike Love and Bruce Johnston, will make a stop in Oklahoma City as part of their “Now and Then” Summer Tour to help raise money for the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma “Food For Kids” program and The Oklahoma Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. All net proceeds raised from this show will be donated to both charities.

This marks the second time the band has played Oklahoma City since 2007 said show producer and Edmond resident John Occhipinti.
In Oklahoma, one in four children lives with hunger every day. Every $100 raised from The Beach Boys’ concert will support a child in a Food for Kids program for an entire school year. Last school year, the Regional Food Bank provided more than 2.3 million meals for chronically hungry children through its Food for Kids Programs.
“We are sincerely grateful to The Beach Boys and their fans for joining us in the fight against blood cancer and all types of cancer,” said Kacy Lowe, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. “Funds from The Beach Boys’ benefit concert will expand research and provide support to patients who are living battling blood cancers today. LLS gave more than $656,000 to support Oklahomans battling cancer in the last year alone.”
