Volunteers and staff from Project Sole were onsite at The Joint to collect the gently used shoes before each performance of Supernatural Santana: A Trip Through the Hits. As a “thank you” to those who donated, fashionable shoe brands Carlos by Carlos Santana and Unity by Carlos Santana offered a 20 percent discount on their merchandise.  The recycled shoes were delivered by Project Sole to schools, shelters and other community organizations around the world and Vegas’ neighborhoods.

A known humanitarian, Carlos Santana has made it a habit to utilize his Vegas performances as a platform to raise awareness for pressing issues and to engage the community. Since his shows launched in May 2009, Santana has partnered with Three Square to participate in a food drive and the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education to assist in fundraising efforts.

Supernatural Santana: A Trip Through the Hits is the first and only rock-n-roll resident show in Las Vegas and was exclusively designed for The Joint, voted “Best New Major Concert Venue” at the 2010 Pollstar Awards. Each performance includes a unique take on the band’s repertoire, creating a one-of-a-kind experience for show-goers. More show dates will be announced soon.
