As the LightHouse deepens its community connections the benefits are sometimes unexpected. Our local Community Benefit District, with deep roots in the cultural and entertainment institutions in our backyard, gifted us with 40 tickets to a remarkable event. Paul McCartney’s concert was the very last event at the venerable Candlestick Park, also the last place the Beatles ever performed together. The tunes were poignant and amazing, and 40 blind leaders and students from around the bay area joined in the historic concert. “It was a wonderful way to salute our community, all of whom help to build the programs and services we want to celebrate,” said Bryan Bashin, LightHouse CEO.
One concert goer was moved to write:
Last night’s Paul McCartney concert was such an amazing, historic and unforgettable experience! I had so much fun singing and dancing along to songs spanning from my childhood all the way to Sir Paul’s latest compositions.
Thank you so much for making the event possible for so many people! Without your generosity, I would not have been able to attend the show.
