This Sunday I’ll be participating in an event aimed at raising funds for the victims of Hurricane Maria on the island of Puerto Rico. A big hand to Leslie Lopez, who took the initiative! For tickets, please go to the eventbrite site!
Come and join us for an evening of lively soul tunes, upbeat latin rock and sensual salsa music, as well as other activities, among them raffles and auctions, aimed at raising funds for the victims of hurricane María and the long-term revitalization of the island of Puerto Rico.
We aim to provide aid through a number of grassroots organizations situated in Puerto Rico, specifically targeting local farmers, who wer heavily impacted by the hurricane, and local medical care providers. We believe it is important that help reaches those who need it most as soon as possible, and so, we aim to bypass NGOs, to forget about the middlemen. All of the proceeds will be accounted for and distributed between the following organizations:
- Proyecto Matria
- Comedores Sociales
- Brigada Solidaria del Oeste
- María Fund
We are confident that we can make a difference, but we need your help.
Save the date and join us on the 12th of November at 19:00. We will be waiting for you at:
1012 SV Amsterdam
Among the artists confirmed for this event are:
- Shirma Rouse
- Friends of the New Cool Collective
- Rolf Sanchez and Latin Society
- Gerardo Rosales
Tickets are 25 EUR and available for sale online through the Eventbrite ticketsite.
