Emergence Health Network is gearing up for the 2017 Frances Rodriguez Memorial Wonderland Benefit Concert. 100% of the proceeds from the concert benefit some EHN consumers with an intellectual and/or developmental disability. EHN uses the money to send these clients on an all-expense paid trip to the Morgan Wonderland Amusement Park in San Antonio, Texas. The Morgan Wonderland Amusement Park is a theme park created specifically for these individuals and allows them to enjoy a stress-free and fun time at an amusement park, which is an experience they might not otherwise get to enjoy.
The event is an exciting evening filled with live salsa music, dancing, door prizes and fun; but most importantly it’s created with our IDD consumers in mind. The concert is set for Friday August 4, 2017 at Tricky Falls located at 209 S. El Paso Street, Downtown. Our very own EHN Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Marcelo Rodriguez-Chevres and his salsa band known as Marcelo Rodche Y Friends, along with salsa band Azucar… are graciously volunteering their time for this benefit concert. It’s a night you don’t want to miss.
Tickets can be purchased at the door or in advance. They are $15 (general admission) or $20 for the limited balcony seating area where food is provided.
As the Local Mental Health Authority in El Paso County, it is EHN’s commitment to provide mental health and IDD (Intellectual/developmental disabilities) services, along with substance use disorder treatment to those in our community. As a non-profit organization, sometimes we rely on the generosity of our community members for events/programs such as this, which help to enhance the opportunities for those who we serve.
