This Is El Paso Benefit Concert This Weekend
This Is El Paso will be taking over three venues to bring music and art together to help collect donations for the victims and family members affected by the tragedy that unfolded on 08/03.
This Is El Paso was conceived by several local music and art organizations including The El Paso International Music Foundation, Musicians United, the El Paso Symphony Youth Orchestra and the El Paso Symphony Orchestra along with others including art collectives, bringing music and art together to serve as a healing balm for our community. TFCU and El Paso Electric even stepped up to the plate to help offset some of the hard costs for the event.
The family-friendly event is free but will be taking donations in the form of cash, text EPMUSIC to 844-329-5253 or by purchasing a t-shirt for $20 with 100% of the proceeds benefitting the El Paso Community Foundation.
This Is El Paso will take over three venues, the Arts Festival Plaza, The Plaza Theatre and B-17 Bombers Oyster Pub on Sunday, August 18, 2019, from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m.
Attendees will also be able to share a message of love as giant letters spelling out El Paso will be on-site for folks to sign. Vitalant blood services will also be on-site taking blood donor appointments followed by food trucks off of Main St.
Everyone is invited to come out for a day of live music, art, and community.
