Sunday August the 6th will be an enormous night for Acompalia. All the visiting artists are giving their acts free, volunteers are set to man the entry gates and information stations, sponsors are coming on board and the Ayuntamiento is giving us the venue free – all ensuring that the concert will be a huge success!
Last year, when Pepe Luis Carmona Habichuela told me he would be delighted to be our Patron, I had no idea that he would throw himself into the job with such drive and enthusiasm. He wanted to put on a concert, he wanted it to be big, to hit the headlines, to make a difference. He has succeeded. In his flamenco tour of Spain over the last few months he has enlisted some of the most famous names in flamenco and they are supporting our August concert by appearing free to ensure we raise as much funds as possible to support our services and build our centre in Motríl.
But it is not only about money. Pepe Luis says “The concert will not end on the night, the media interest will spread the name and work of Acompalia, the charity will be seen to be linked with the names of Estrella Morente, Pitingo, Montse Cortes, Solea Morente and all the wonderful musicians contributing to the event.” We know that the prestige will put Acompalia in the front line and we will reach so many new friends and supporters.
So thank you Pepe Luis, your events team, our volunteers and our sponsors. Now it is over to you, our members and supporters. Please spread the word, share the poster, sell some tickets, in short help us make it an unforgettable evening for Acompalia and the stars who are appearing. The Hospice program is yours, none of us know when we might need this kind of help, let´s get building!
