Santa Ana, Calif. (September 24, 2020) – Court Appointed Special Advocates of Orange County (CASA-OC) and Autosonic Concerts Safely Powered by Subaru, (Subaru of America, Inc.), have partnered to bring a higher level of community awareness for local foster youth through the Drive-In Concert Experience being held at The OC Fair & Event Center, September 25 – 27 and October 16 - 18, 2020.

Autosonic is a LIVE entertainment concept in response to the COVID-19 crisis. As the official sponsor, Subaru proudly selected CASA-OC to be the beneficiary of this unique experience. The Subaru Love Promise platform is nationally, if not globally, recognized for its philanthropy and giving back to important causes that promote love, tolerance, help, and support to others in local communities across the nation.

"As we celebrate 35 years of providing a powerful voice and a meaningful connection for children who have experienced abuse, neglect, and abandonment, CASA-OC is honored to partner with Autosonic Concerts and Subaru. Your support brings much needed attention to the work we do in supporting Orange County's foster youth." Susan Kenny, CASA-OC Chief Advancement Officer.  

“We were thrilled to hear that CASA-OC was selected as the local charity partner” said Eric Park, LA Zone Manager, SOA, “What this organization does for foster youth is heroic beyond words and in support of their great work, we committed to match EVERY dollar donated, from ticket sales and through the ‘text to donate’ opportunity during the entire series.”

During each performance, concert guests will wait in their cars for the show to begin while video instructions play safe and ‘contact-less’ guidelines for the evening along with other concert information. In addition, information about CASA-OC's mission and how to give back. Please text to donate to (949) 751-1168, with code CASAOC. You can also visit for other ways to participate.
