Winona Musicians Play for Puerto Rico

Sunday | October 29 | 1pm – 5pm
Signature’s Restaurant

Musicians from the Southeastern Minnesota area are teaming up with the Signatures Restaurant October 29, 2017 to perform a benefit for victims of hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. Four groups will perform throughout the afternoon and all will be donating their time and talents. The event will take place in the beautiful ballroom of Signatures Restaurant. The management is waiving all costs for the venue in support of the benefit. Top area restaurants including Signatures, The Blue Heron, Wellington’s and Jefferson’s have also donated gift certificates to offer as door prizes. 100% of proceeds will go to the American Red Cross of America and Oxfam International targeted for hurricane relief in Puerto Rico. Due to the urgency of the need as a result of damage to the country’s infrastructure, funds are needed immediately. We have been in direct contact with the American Red Cross of SE Minnesota and plan to donate contributions directly to them and Oxfam. Contributions are tax deductible.
