Bonita Blues Festival

The second annual Bonita Blues Festival will be held on Saturday, March 15, 2008 at the Riverside Park in Bonita Springs. The festival will feature fabulous blues bands, diverse and sumptuous food, and vendor booths.

The bands and entertainers scheduled to perform include Headliner: John
Mooney, Blind Pass, Little Eddie and Fat Fingers, Albert Castiglia and Frank Corso. In addition, the emcee of the festival will be television personality Trey Radel from Wink News.

The net proceeds from the Bonita Blues Festival will go to support the Immokalee Friendship House, the Shelter for Abused Women & Children and Healthy Start of SW Florida charities. The Bonita Blues Charitable Foundation is dedicated to helping the homeless, abused women and children, and babies in our community. Their mission is to provide assistance to local non-profit organizations that do not have the funding or resources to effectively reach out for donations. Last year the Bonita Blues Festival raised over $15, 000 in donations, and all net proceeds were given to local charities.
