The Bonita Blues Charitable Foundation was founded to present high-quality Blues music to our community while raising funds to support local charities.
Over the past four years we have donated approximately $30,000 to charities including, The Liberty Youth Ranch, The Shelter for Abused Women and Children, Healthy Start, The Bonita Springs Assistance Office, the Immokalee Friendship House and Music For Minors. For 2011 we have once again selected the Bonita Springs Assistance Office and Music For Minors as our benefactors for our fifth festival.
The Bonita Springs Assistance Office lends financial and other support to anyone in the community that needs help. Music For Minors provides musical instruments to children that cannot afford them and encourages them to perform well in school so they can keep the instruments. In 2010 the proceeds from the festival provided fourteen instruments to children in Lee County.
As founders, we are so grateful for all of the support we receive from the community to make the Bonita Blues Festival a success. From the beginning the City of Bonita Springs has encouraged and supported our efforts. We are very fortunate that the City of Bonita Springs has the finest outdoor venue is southwest Florida. Of course, none of this would have been possible without our sponsors, advertisers and the many volunteers that donate their time throughout the year and at the event.
We are so excited to present the milestone, fifth-annual Bonita Blues Festival on March 11 & 12, 2011. Please join us for a stellar line-up of musicians as we support our local charities.
