Subaru to Sponsor The Newport Beach Jazz Festival, Presented by Bank of the West


September 28, 2021




[Newport Beach, CA] – The Newport Beach Jazz Festival is proud to announce an official partnership with Subaru for this year’s 25th Anniversary Celebration.

Subaru is more than a car company. At Subaru, they believe in being a positive force in the communities they serve, building lifelong relationships with their customers, earning their trust, and exceeding expectations. This is why they have begun The Subaru Love Promise – their initiative to show love and respect to all people at every interaction with Subaru.

Through relationships with organizations like our non-profit partner, Court Appointed Special Advocates of Orange County (CASA OC), they set an example for others to follow. This year, The Subaru Love Promise will donate $15,000 to CASA OC, to help provide a powerful voice and a meaningful connection for children who have experienced abuse, neglect, and abandonment. 

“We’re so proud to partner with Subaru through the Subaru Love Promise. Because of their generosity, we will continue to recruit, train, and supervise volunteers to support Orange County’s most vulnerable youth. It’s an honor to be a part of the Newport Beach Jazz Festival. We’re looking forward to seeing these incredible artists perform and to raise awareness for our important work on behalf of foster youth in our community.”  Regan Phillips, Chief Executive Officer, CASA OC.

“Subaru and its Los Angeles-Orange County area retailers are delighted to be in partnership with the Newport Beach Jazz Festival for its 25th year anniversary and CASA OC,” said Eric Park, Marketing Manager - LAX Zone, Subaru of America.  What this organization does for foster youth is heroic beyond words and in support of their great work, we hope this donation will bring more attention to their mission. It’s exactly what Subaru celebrates as a brand through Subaru Love Promise“.

The festival kicks off on Friday night at Hyatt’s Back Bay Amphitheatre with a VIP concert featuring Mindi Abair. The intimate outdoor concert venue offers 1,000 seats within 100 feet from the stage.

About Hyatt Regency Newport Beach

An iconic refuge for your Southern California getaway.  Our hotel was built in the 1960’s and boast the classic early California, low-profile building architecture.  It was one of the first full-service hotels in the area and in its’ heyday entertained a number of celebrities and hosted all of the “fashionable” events in the area.  You came here to see and be seen!   A true toast to the SoCal lifestyle we offer a variety of outdoor activities from Golf to biking to sunbathing, embrace family (including the furry family members) and promote a healthy/balanced lifestyle.  Over 5 decades of growth and development have brought many new hotels to our area, but none that are as steeped in tradition and charm as Hyatt Regency Newport Beach. Today we would identify ourselves as a landmark in Newport Beach, reminiscence of an era long gone; the perfect home away from home during your Southern California stay. From hosting the historic Newport Beach Jazz Festival, to a romantic wedding in our amphitheater, to a poolside family reunion or a craft cocktail at our fireside lounge; the best of Newport Beach starts here.

About Subaru Loves to Help.  Right now, millions of Americans are out of work and cannot access food for themselves or their families. One in four children in this country may face hunger. Subaru and our retailers donated 50 million meals when the pandemic began but the need is still so great that we are doing it again. In April Subaru donated 50 million meals to Feeding America®. Now Subaru and its retailers are helping donate an additional 100 million meals. This action is part of Subaru’s effort to help make meals available at 199 local food banks across the country. It’s the Subaru Love Promise at work. Subaru. More than a car company.™
