This event honors survivors, remembers loved ones who have lost the battle, and raises money to improve the quality of life for cancer patients and their families. CampIn Against Cancer raises support for Kern County patients and 100% of the net proceeds will stay local.

Guitar Masters Raises Record Breaking Funds for KCCF

December 12, 2019

Guitar Masters presents Christmas with The Cranktones for its fifth year at Buck Owens’ Crystal Palace. Christmas with The Cranktones is an annual fundraiser that raises money for the Kern County Cancer Fund.

The annual Christmas concert is facilitated by local residents Rick Kreiser who as a caregiver and friend to his loved ones, like his wife, son, niece and business partner has experienced the impact cancer can have. 

All proceeds from the event will be directly donated to the Fund, where profits aid Kern County residents when they can’t afford treatment.

This year, the concert event raised $90,000.
