Tejano Superstars Join Together For Toy Drive for Austin Kids

Some of the biggest names in Tejano music will give their time to the 2nd Annual Toys for Tejanitos event on Sunday, December 2nd at the Texas Club Bar and Grill, helping over 2,500 children in East and Southeast Austin this holiday season.
Since 1983, the River City Youth Foundation has offered a wide variety of programs to help Austin youth maximize their potential, as well as initiatives and events to improve communities. The organization’s core programs specialize in mentoring, counseling & case management, substance abuse prevention, technology, health & wellness, college & career, and community development. While it has served the entire city during its history, in recent years, the foundation has focused its attention and efforts on the Dove Springs area of Southeast Austin.
The schedule of performers is a star-studded lineup featuring legendary and Grammy-winning Tejano superstars, along with up and coming Tejano, Mariachi, Latin Rock, and Latin Hip-Hop artists and groups:

Ruben Ramos, David Lee Garza, David Marez, Raulito Navaira, Los Texmaniacs, Calle Seis, Hugo Guerrero, Gilbert Alba, A-T Boyz, Cacy Savala, Art Tigerina of Grupo Vida, Jonny Martinez, Ricky Valenz, Trampia, La Distancia, Palacio Brothers, Tanie Castaneda, Playa E, Nikki Lopez y Cañonazo, Big Band Tejano, Joel Guzman & Sarah Fox, Mariachi Las Tejanitas, Mariachi Relampago
Pete Diaz, Jerry Avila, and Rene Garcia will MC the event, and the sponsors include The Austin Tejano Music Coalition, Revolution Entertainment, Primetime Tejano, and Austin Wholesale Decking Supply.
The event begins at 3 p.m and goes until 11 p.m, and the cover charge is either $5 or one toy per person. The Texas Club Bar and Grill is located at 4914 Burleson Road, just south of Ben White Blvd in Southeast Austin. All ages are welcome.
