Hurricane Maria made landfall just south of Yabucoa Harbor in Puerto Rico at 6:15 a.m on September 20th 2017. The National Weather Service observes maximum sustained winds of 155 miles per hour, making Maria the first Category 4 cyclone to hit the island since 1932. Since then Hurricane Maria has devastated the island of Puerto Rico. Artists for Creative Theatre has committed to helping the island by sending care packages to families in need on the island. As Puerto Rico continues on the long road to recovery we have decided to collaborate with Venessa Diaz and her one woman show! For more details on Venessa check out her website: http://www.venessadiaz.com
We are proud to announce our first benefit for Puerto Rico will be held on March 19th! Please show your support by purchasing a ticket for this amazing one woman show to benefit Puerto Rico! We will also be raffling off Flaco Coquito and other items as well! More details on that soon!
All100% of the proceeds will go to the www.mariafund.org to support grassroots organizations such as organization Boricua de Agricultura Eco-Organica which supports the farmers and their efforts to regrow healthy crops. We hope you will join us in supporting these grassroots organization to create real change and recovery on the island.
We would like to thank Clemente Soto Velez and Director Veronica Caicedo for donating the Flamboyan theater space for this important cause.
