Event description

Description

Performance to benefit the people in the Luquetti community in Yauco, Puerto Rico whom were hard hit by hurricane Maria. 100 homes destroyed due to river overflowing into their homes and have been told they need to abandon their homes for they are deemed unsafe to live. Proceeds from ticket sales will give them much needed relief while long term relief can arrive. Recording artist and founder of Stardust Foundation Melissa Otero has been featured on Telemundo's Reina de Corazones, Lifetime TV's Dance Moms and more! We invite you to visit www.melissaotero.com for more info on her music and her humanitarian work for Puerto Rico.

With this benefit concert we hope to bring more supplies that are immediately usable and can help ease the burden for a few weeks as more long-term relief efforts continue to take shape. Not only will this include food, but basic power sources (solar powered lanterns and phone charges) to allow for communication and other basic needs while power is being restored.

The supplies will be picked up in several points along the way as not everything will be available in the same location – some will be bought on amazon and shipped, a van will be rented in San Juan where some items will be picked up, others in Ponce, and some actually will be able to be delivered directly to Yauco where another member of the team will be able to receive them safely. We will assemble the boxes at a home in Yauco and distribute to families in these hard-hit communities in the following days.

We invite you to view the two documentaries released thus far. The first one is Melissa's personal experience with her family during the hurricane and immediate aftermath, the second is her first relief trip bringing supplies to the south-west part of the island. Lastly you may view a photo album of what the community looked like during the hurricane and its devastation.
