The Murcia Fair is also charitable: five Murcian artists, including Paco Román de Neuman and ' Huracán' Bañón , performed at the Teatro Circo Murcia for the benefit of Caritas Región de Murcia , within the 'I Abarca Shoes Solidarity Festival'.
The 'I Abarca Solidarity Festival', organized by Abarca and Cáritas in collaboration with the Murcia City Council , included the performance of five Murcian artists: the soloists P aco Román from 'Neuman' and 'Huracán' Bañón, as well as the bands ' A Pact with Julieta' , 'Bad Sugar ' and 'Javi Volumen and Los Fanáticos del Ritmo ' .
The ticket had a single price of 10 euros and could already be purchased at El Corte Inglés de Murcia in Murcia. The money raised was used entirely to finance solidarity projects of the organization Cáritas Región de Murcia , which was carried out throughout 2014.
On the other hand, on the day of the concert, two food collection points were also installed to collaborate with those most in need.
The 'I Abarca Solidarity Festival' poster was the work of the painter and visual artist Álvaro Peña , while the audiovisual production company Sigillum produced a 20-second 'spot' that was broadcast on local television in Murcia.
Likewise, different personalities from the Region, among which the Real Murcia footballers Óscar Sánchez and Francisco Molinero stand out; the Brazilian center of UCAM CB Murcia, Augusto Lima ; the president of Cáritas Diocese of Cartagena, José Luis Leante ; the director of Müsh Magazine, Almudena Díaz ; or the director of Shopper Magazine, Claudia Martínez , among others, have recorded radio spots on Onda Regional de Murcia , so that they can be broadcast on various regional radio stations.
The event had about twenty sponsors: Al Print, Autoescuela Cosmos, Bilenio, Crápula Wines, Estrella de Levante, Joaquín Clares Photography Studio, El Corte Inglés, ElPozo Alimentación, Cajamurcia Foundation, Gastrologists, Pampaneo Restaurant, Salzillo Tea & Coffee, Sigillum, TM Systems, Todoplas, Tutete and Panasa .
On the same night as the charity concert, the gastronomic events producer Gastrólogos will sell -in bars located on C/ Travesía Enrique Villar, next to Teatro Circo Murcia- author sandwiches signed by the Murcian chefs Estrella Carrillo (Rte. Santa Ana), Francisco Pedreño (Center for Reception and Comprehensive Accompaniment of Cáritas) and Freddy Salmerón (Rte. El Estudio de Ana) .
The desserts were made by the chef and Michelin star Alfonso Egea (Rte. Entre Col y Col and Casa Alfonso), and the pastry chefs Alejandro Mazón (Confitería Mazón) and Juan Antonio Serrano (Confitería Serano).
