Sammy Hagar to rock out at The Bishop’s School’s annual benefit auction April 20

Sammy Hagar will perform on Saturday, April 20, at the “Baja Knights” 2013 Auction on The Bishop’s School campus in La Jolla.

For almost 40 years, Hagar, 65, has been one of rock music’s most prolific artists. From breaking into the industry with the seminal hard rock band Montrose to his multi-platinum solo career to his ride as the front man of Van Halen, the “Red Rocker” has set the tone for some of the greatest rock anthems — “I Can’t Drive 55,” “Right Now,” and “Why Can’t This Be Love?”

Hagar won a Grammy Award and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame alongside Van Halen and is currently on his fourth platinum run with the group Chickenfoot.

“Baja Knights” will raise money for the school’s need-based student financial aid and faculty professional growth programs. This year’s “casually cool” event is co-chaired by Bishop’s parents Janna and Marco Monroy and Tina and David Thomas.

“Baja Knights” will also feature a premium wine auction, dinner for 500, and both live and silent auctions for items that offer unique experiences.

For more information or to discuss a sponsorship or donation, contact the school’s advancement office at (858) 875-0804.

Note: “Baja Knights” kicks-off with a Wine Tastings Party 5:30-7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, at the home of Dawn and Sam Maywood. Admission is $100 or a donation of one or more bottles of premium wine (Must have a Wine Spectator, Parker or Wine Advocate rating of 95+ points and a minimum $100 value.)
