On Mother's Day weekend, four internationally renowned Latin artists put on a concert for a very special cause.
Nydia Caro, Pilar Montenegro, Jennice Fuentes and Pablo Montero visited Chicago May 12-13 as part of the Verizon Wireless Mother's Day Celebration. The gathering was a benefit for Mujeres Latinas en Acción, an organization that provides services to issues ranging from domestic violence to sexual assault to homelessness.
On May 12, Caro, Montenegro and Fuentes toured the organization's new facility at 2124 W. 21st Place. They spoke about their worries concerning the growing rate of domestic violence in the Hispanic community.
The following night, the musicians entertained many at the Aragon Ballroom, 1106 W. Lawrence.
