This Festival is funded by the generous contribution of Mr. Lewis Peeples, through his late wife Dr. Bonnie Brooks’ Family Foundation. Bonnie Brooks was a long time El Paso resident, Oscar Macchioni's dear friend, and a philanthropist committed to the musical scene in the Borderland region of El Paso, Texas, and her beloved Cloudcroft, New Mexico. Her love for El Paso and music will live forever through this legacy.
