Hard Rock Cafe San Francisco is kicking off the official season of giving by helping to feed children and their families worldwide. Hard Rock Cafe San Francisco will host Friday Nights That Rock. The live music events will benefit WhyHunger, a nonprofit organization that strives to fight against hunger and poverty in America and around the world.
The admission for Hard Rock Cafe San Francisco’s “Friday Nights That Rock” will be complementary to all guests that donate non-perishable canned food items, or make a monetary donation at the door.

The events are part of Hard Rock International’s 2011 global IMAGINE THERE’S NO HUNGER campaign, which is supported by John Lennon’s wife, artist and musician Yoko Ono Lennon, to combat childhood hunger and poverty around the world.
