Musical Benefit for Children of Palomas on Saturday

A musical benefit to aid the children of Palomas, Chihuahua, attend school this 2011-2012 school year will be held at A.I.R. Coffee Company at 208 Central Ave. in Bayard, N.M., tomorrow, Saturday August 6, 10:00 a.m. to Noon.

Local, celebrated musicians will be Danny Cordova, playing traditional Spanish guitar and Latin jazz, Eileen Sullivan playing Irish fiddle, and Valentina Victoria Watson on the Venezuelan cuatro, singing traditional music, including lullabies and "La Llorona."

Please attend, to help raise registration fees so that children in Palomas may attend school. School supply donations are welcome, as are donations of new children's shoes, and boys' black pants and white shirts.

Donations of non-perishable food are welcomed!

The situation of children in Palomas is dire. We estimate that only half of Palomas children now attend school. Your attendance can open doors in a child's present and future during the ongoing humanitarian crisis at our Mexico border.
