DEL RIO – The negative effects and impact of Hurricane Harvey, considered the strongest hurricane in recent memory, has created a groundswell of support across Texas, particularly in Del Rio where one local musician is doing his part for the victims of that catastrophe.

 “I know a lot of people want to help but don’t know how so I decided to help out by doing a benefit concert for the community,” said musician, Peter Herrera, III.

Other musicians scheduled to perform for the Sip & Bid for Texas Benefit Concert are Noah Smith and Andy Mitchell.

A Silent Auction from 3 p.m. – 6 p.m. with a live auction will be hosted by Oscar San Miguel, Jr. Doors officially open at 3 p.m. 

“The community has shown a great outpouring of generosity in helping us out with the event,” said Herrera.

The event will be held at the Whitehead Memorial Museum on September 10 with a $15 cover charge at the door. 

 “This is our way of giving back to the community as everybody is trying to do their part.” 

100 percent of the money raised will split between two charities: the Harvey Relief Fund and AmeriCare.
