Rick Olson (Bogus Pomp) says:
Recently, Hurricane Ida pummeled El Salvador killing several hundred and leaving many others homeless and hurting. We have organized a benefit concert to help in the small way we musicians can and hope you will too. Consider the one dollar means one meal to someone in need the Thanksgiving weekend.
Rick Olson and Jerry Outlaw are members of the Latin Rock band Point 6 and urge you to join us. Please.

SUNDAY NOV 29
Benefit Concert For the People Of El Salvador
For nine years, a team of doctors, nurses and volunteers from the Tampa Bay area have brought medical supplies, free health care and hope to thousands of impoverished and sick people in El Salvador. Founded by Dr. Roberto Araujo and known as the Mission of Mercy, the group travels to the mountain town of Jucuapa in the eastern part of the country. There they do everything from dispense vitamins to perform surgeries that enable patients to see and walk. About 60,000 Salvadorans have been helped since the mission started in 1993. Read more in this story from the St. Petersburg Times. Performers include:
- Alfredo Rivero and Manigua (JAZZ/FLAMENCO)
- Ray Villadonga and PBS (WORLD FUSION)
- Point 6 (LATIN ROCK)
- Somos Musica (SALSA Y MERENGUE)
- Baye Kouyate (AFRO-BEAT)
- The Hamiltones (ROCKASILLY)
