Saturday, November 22 at the Texas Club Bar and Grill, Austin’s Tejano community will once again come together for the common good. This time, it will be to help raise funds for My Voice Matters, an initiative to buy equipment to help nonverbal students in Austin with special needs learn and communicate.
My Voice Matters was started by parents of children with special needs to make sure their kids get the equipment they need for life skills, learning, and communication. This equipment is not currently available due to budget constraints in their school district.
While the schedule is subject to change, here’s the lineup:
3:20 p.m. – TBA
4 p.m. – Nikki Lopez
4:45 p.m. – Devin Banda
5:30 p.m. – Jessie Marie Delgado (San Antonio)
6:15 p.m. – Angel Gonzalez
8 p.m. – Marcelo Gauna y Volante (with special guest Raphael Rodriguez)
9:15 p.m. – Los R.V. Boyz (San Antonio)
10:15 p.m. – Conjunto Cats (Seguin)
11:20 p.m. – Cañonazo with Robby Garza & Erika Santana
In addition to the entertainment, there will also be a raffle and food for sale. If you can’t make it to the event, you can also give online at gofundme.com/myvoicematters.
Long story short: This event is all heart and there will be nothing but good vibes and a real sense of community, along with great music. There will be quite a few surprise special guests on hand as well.
