This summer, Les Schwab Tires is looking to build on the community impact of its 2022 Hayden Homes Amphitheater Concert Series program with another season of support.

Les Schwab uses its marquee Concert Series sponsorship to advance assistance for children, families and education in Central Oregon. Our partners were able to raise thousands of dollars in 2022, thanks to this opportunity. Information about partner organizations reached hundreds of thousands of people through Les Schwab’s various communication channels.

In 2023, Les Schwab will use its presence at 16 of the series’ 51 confirmed concerts to again spotlight longtime community partners to inspire giving, volunteerism and general awareness of the organizations’ crucial services. Partners will each bring a fun experience to the concert venue, from photo booths to raffles and spinning wheel games.

“Bend’s world-class beauty and culture have understandably inspired population growth in recent years,” said Chief Marketing Officer Dale Thompson. “That means more people than ever can benefit from the support of their neighbors. At Les Schwab, we are deeply committed to our community and value the opportunity to build support and engagement for our partner organizations with this sponsorship.”

The program launches with the Chris Stapleton concert June 16. Healing Reins will use the opportunity to spotlight its horse-centered therapies and experiences, which aim to bring strength, hope, confidence, and joy to people of all ages with disabilities and special needs.

“We very much appreciate the chance to share our inspiring programs with the community at the concert venue,” said Healing Reins Executive Director Polly Cohen. “We know firsthand how effectively horses can heal, and we’re glad to be able to partner with community-minded businesses like Les Schwab to make sure more people know about our offerings.”

The community organizations that will participate in Les Schwab’s program throughout the series include:

  • Healing Reins
  • Central Oregon Junior Golf Association
  • Rimrock Trails
  • Saving Grace
  • Bethlehem Inn
  • J Bar J
  • Mosaic Community Health
