Charitable outreach is an ongoing interest for Fox Restaurant Concepts (FRC). In many different ways — financial, culinary, and more — the Arizona-based restaurant empire supports groups ranging from the American Heart Association’s Phoenix Heart Ball to notMYkid.

Saturday, October 19, FRC presents the music festival YardStock, with a portion of certain proceeds going to the Phoenix Girls Chorus, a nonprofit music education organization welcoming singers from 7-18 and offering six different concert programs this season.

Running from noon to 11 p.m., YardStock features sets from seven local artists: country-tinged rockers 36 Cents and a Dream, singer-songwriters AJ Odneal and Sam Kiles with Sol Trak Union, blues band The Sugar Thieves, Led Zepplin tribute group Song Remains the Same, alternative blues guitarist Lee Perreira, and indie rock duo Vinyl Station.

All performances take place at The Yard, a 53,000-square-foot repurposed central Phoenix motorcycle dealership housing FRC’s Culinary Dropout and Little Cleo’s Seafood Legend restaurants. Other amenities include a shared outdoor patio-courtyard space offering ping-pong, foosball, shuffleboard, and cornhole. Meanwhile, representatives from Slippery Pig Bike Shop plan to tune bikes on site during the festival.

Fundraising opportunities for the Phoenix Girls Chorus will come from the sale of t-shirts provided by Tempe-based Brand X Custom T-Shirts as well as a special promotional offer from luxury transportation provider Uber.
