For many years now, Ronnie Maceo, Cruz Cortez and Robert Donovan aka The Coconut Grove Bunch have joined their efforts together, to raise money to help the children of Shriner's Burns Hospital, here in Galveston. The three businessmen through out the years, hold Live Music Concerts, which they call "On the SideWalk" The name came from the fact that the original concerts started on a sidewalk on 25th Street, in the Historic Downtown Strand Area. The concerts take place through out the Summer and Mardi Gras and are free to the public.
Each year, the three ask for donations from the public to a program they call "Call Home for Christmas".
Many of the children who have suffered burns and are receiving treatment here at Galveston's Shriner's Burn Hospital come from other countries. The Shriners Organization pays for that child and one parent to come to Galveston and receive free treatment, The Coconut Grove Bunch learned years ago that many of these parents do not have the money to call back home to their family, so they began organizing the fun events as a way they could ask for donations, for their program "Call Home for Christmas".
100% (less any PayPal fees) of your donations goes to buying International Land Line Calling Cards and hand delivered to the Hospital.
