Carlos Santana, SONY BMG's ICON Collectibles and CharityFolks.com are auctioning the opportunity to meet Carlos Santana and attend his sold out performance at the Fillmore in his home town of San Francisco on May 21st. Two auction packages are available online (for either two or four tickets) at www.charityfolks.com/santana now through Monday, May 19th.
The current auction opportunities on CharityFolks.com will raise money to benefit The Milagro Foundation.
After the show, the winning bidders and their guests will join Carlos and the band at an exclusive reception at the Lush Life Gallery/Jazz Heritage Center. They will also receive a special Carlos Santana photographic print taken by celebrated rock photographer Jim Marshall, signed by both the artist and the photographer, as well as a copy of Carlos' forthcoming album Multi Dimensional Warrior (not in stores until August 5th). The print will be sent to the winning bidders following the event.
Carlos Santana has been reinventing and reshaping the landscape of musical culture for close to four decades. A visionary artist with no regards for genre boundaries, Carlos' fluid sound long ago laid claim to the concept of "world music" before the term ever surfaced on the pop culture radar.
A member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Santana has sold more than 90 million records, and performed to over 100 million people globally. He has won ten GRAMMY Awards, including a record tying nine for a single project for his 36th album, the blockbuster 1999 disc Supernatural. Well into his fourth decade of recording and performing, Carlos Santana is at the pinnacle of his career, more vital and relevant than ever. With his lifetime of music and achievement, Santana has become a cultural event -- transcending genre, crossing cultures -- creating the music that has become the soundtrack for the world.
Less publicized, but equally as profound as his artistic legacy, is Santana's long history of social activism and contributions of time and funds to humanitarian causes. As a culmination of his decades of support for countless charities and non-profit agencies the world over, he and Deborah Santana founded The Milagro Foundation in 1998. With over $2.8 million in grants to date, Milagro supports organizations promoting the welfare of under-served children in the areas of health, education and the arts.
