WHY

LAS VEGAS: Legendary musician Carlos Santana will help raise food, funds and awareness for America’s hungry children during the November performances of his multi-year resident show entitled Supernatural Santana: A Trip Through the Hits, at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

During the eight Santana performances in November, presented by AEG Live, concertgoers who bring five non-perishable food items or make a $5 donation to the Three Square Food Bank will receive a $5 gift certificate to participating restaurants Ago and Rare 120 inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Representatives from Three Square will be on hand before and after each performance night (Nov. 11, 13, 14, 15, 18, 20, 21, and 22) to collect donations from participating fans. Coordinating the effort will be WHY (World Hunger Year).

WHY is dedicated to fighting the root causes of hunger and poverty by supporting grassroots organizations that create self-reliance, economic justice and equal access to nutritious and affordable food.

“It is my honor to help World Hunger Year and those who are in need in Las Vegas,” Carlos Santana said. “This year above all others in recent memory is an important one to help our brothers and sisters of this family we call the human race. I encourage you to help and to participate in this more than worthwhile drive.”

“WHY has a long history of working with artists to support food banks and local anti-hunger charities across the country” said WHY’s Director of Marketing & Fundraising Noreen Springstead “At a time of ever increasing hunger, poverty, and joblessness we are honored to work with Carlos Santana to shine a spotlight on people who need help to feed their families, and we can bring food to the table thanks to generous fans and our grassroots partners like the Three Square Food Bank feeding those in need every day of the year.”
