Whether children's charities, health organizations, the environment, or animals, Rock by the Sea has created a family-like community of music fans and musicians.  We share a passion for music that equals  our passion to give where needs are plenty. We hope you will join our effort and be a part of our community as we continue to press forward, year after year, to make a difference with music for a cause.

Rock by the Sea selects charities that move us and we like to give back to the area where we hold events.  We generally select three charities per event including a local charity.
These three charities are the beneficiaries of our September event.  

A place to play. A place to feel safe. A place to giggle. A place to escape. A place to share. Mere words can't describe Camp Sunshine, because it's more than a place. It's more than a camp. It's more than a house. It's a program that offers an infusion of love, support, fun, acceptance and hope for children with cancer, and it's in full swing all year long.  Camp Sunshine is a celebration of life that helps renew the spirit of young children with cancer and their families. The children and families who attend Camp Sunshine programs realize they are not alone in their struggle with cancer.

Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is one of the most common, life-threatening genetic diseases affecting thousands in America and millions worldwide.  There is no treatment or cure for PKD.  The PKD Foundation is the only organization in the U.S. solely dedicated to finding treatments and a cure forPKD to improve the lives of those it affects. We do this through promoting programs of research, education, advocacy, support and awareness on a national level, along with direct services to local communities across the country. Our vision is that one day no one will suffer the full effects of PKD. The Foundation supports PKD-relevant scientific and clinical meetings that bring together PKD scientists from around the world to discuss current findings and encourage research collaboration.
