Entrepreneur Chuck Brennan has proclaimed the recent grand opening of Brennan Rock & Roll Academy, a non-profit music program that serves the Girls and Boys Clubs of the Sioux Empire, a big success garnering $1.2 million for the children of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The organization's namesake, Chuck Brennan, is the CEO and Founder of Dollar Loan Center established in 1998 to serve the subprime lending market. Chuck Brennan and Dollar Loan Center are based in Las Vegas, Nevada, and serves customers in four states: Nevada, Utah, California, and South Dakota.

Chuck Brennan hosted the series of grand opening performances that spanned a full week of entertainment. The Brennan Rock & Roll Academy is located in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, hometown of the well-known entrepreneur, Chuck Brennan. As a former executive of the music industry, Chuck Brennan was able to recruit some of his famous friends to help aid with the project that generated over a million dollars for the organization.

Chuck Brennan is excited to be able to share his love of rock and roll with future generations. Boys and Girls Club members range from first graders to seventeen-year-olds. Brennan Rock & Roll Academy is a place where kids interact with each other while they learn about rock and roll. Among notables Chuck Brennan secured for the opening week's entertainment were Gene Simmons, Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer of KISS fame, Mötley Crüe’s Vince Neil, RATT’s Stephen Pearcy, Robby Krieger of the DOORS, Alice Cooper, and Sebastian Bach and Joey Allen of Warrant, to name a few. Chuck Brennan is grateful to the entertainers who so willingly gave of their time and talent to make the week a resounding success.

Chuck Brennan established Brennan Rock & Roll Academy so that kids could recognize and unleash a talent and love of music they didn't even realize they had. According to Chuck Brennan and numerous others, music is considered the universal language. Through music, children often learn to believe in themselves while doing something they are truly excited about. Chuck Brennan believes that with the encouragement and instruction of gifted musicians, students gain self-confidence through newly-learn skills and perhaps dream dreams that they might not have otherwise dared to pursue.

Chuck Brennan is passionate about this worthwhile endeavor. He was also a Boys Club kid in Sioux Falls. To emphasize his commitment to the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Sioux Empire, he led by example with the first donation in the amount of $250,000. In addition, Chuck Brennan has committed approximately three million dollars to future funding of the Rock & Roll Academy’s program for the children at the Sioux Empire’s Boys and Girls Clubs over the next twenty years.

Originally from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Chuck Brennan currently lives in Las Vegas, Nevada, with his wife and four children.
