Rob Schneider Music Foundation Celebrates its 15 year mark-Story by Joanna Renteria

Last night I went to an event that took place in South San Francisco High School. The actor and stand up comedian, Rob Schneider began a foundation in 1997- the Rob Schneider Music Foundation. Due to budget cuts, the Pacifica School District was forced to cut the music program entirely from all schools, when Rob heard of this the foundation was founded.

Originally from Pacifica, Rob claims it was music provided in school was helped inspire him and motivate him. Now, thanks to Rob  Schneider the organization makes it fifteen year mark. The actor has funded the organization as well as help organize fundraisers allocating money to hire music teachers, buy instruments and provide scholarships.

I went to the event expecting to POSSIBLY see the actor. To my surprise, the actor was very much there. I was able to meet the actor, and learn of his foundation and passion for music. Here is the story:
