El Paso Event Supporting Women’s Needs For Women’s History Month
It is Women's History Month & there have been many events in town helping those in need. This past Tuesday there was an event where parents could pick up baby supplies for free, & next Friday there will be a non-profit event benefiting women's needs.
Corina Michelle is a local artist, supporting both El Paso musicians AND artists. She's also a mother, so she knows how important it is for all women to have everything they need to provide for their family & themselves. In celebration of Women's History Month, she has decided to collaborate with Amano Collective to hold a non-profit local market event next Friday, March 25th for a good cause: Mujer Creativa.
When I was talking To Corina, she said that all the donations will go to benefit women's shelters/rescue missions in town. Everyone is encouraged to bring items such as menstrual products, socks, underwear, hygiene products or baby care products & everyone who does donate will be able to raffles to win prizes including gift baskets.
There will be live bands & musicians performing at Mujer Creativa include Champagne Sugar Daddy, De La Luna, The Pie Sisters, Liz Tina, there will be two DJs: Cairoglyphics & "DJ Armani". There will be local artists displaying their works as well as live painting, over 30 different vendors (food, drinks, art) on site. It IS a family friendly event, it's dog friendly & it's a free event to attend. If anyone has any questions, people are encouraged to contact Corina or Amano Collective on Instagram.
