Anyone going to Vegas?

Grammy-winning Latin rock band Santana, led by Carlos Santana, is performing eight shows in November to help raise food, funds and awareness for America’s hungry children. The residency, entitled Supernatural Santana: A Trip Through the Hits, take place on the 11th, 13th, 14th, 15th, 18th, 20th, 21st and 22nd at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

Santana has a multi-year contract with AEG Live which sees him play The Joint about 36 times a year. Concert-goers for these dates who bring five non-perishable food items or make a $5 donation to the local Three Square Food Bank will receive a $5 gift certificate to participating restaurants Ago and Rare 120 inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

Coordinating the effort will be WHY (World Hunger Year). Founded in 1975 by the late Harry Chapin and current executive director Bill Ayres, WHY works to put an end to hunger suffered by 36.2 million Americans and nearly 1 billion people worldwide.

WHY’s main programs include the National Hunger Hotline 1-866-3-HUNGRY, which refers individuals in need of emergency food assistance to soup kitchens, food banks, government programs and community organizations in their neighborhoods; the Grassroots Action Network, which provides information, networking opportunities, capacity building and access to over 8,000 anti-hunger and poverty community organizations across the United States and around the world; and Artists Against Hunger & Poverty which is supported by Bruce Springsteen, Michael McDonald, Jackson Browne, Crosby Stills & Nash, Chicago, Earth Wind & Fire, Joss Stone, and many others.
