Held in November, the t-shirt design contest was open to all members of B&GCLV ages 11-17.  The artwork created by Imani, age 12 from Lied Memorial Clubhouse, was selected by Santana as the winner and turned into a limited edition t-shirt.  The shirt is currently available at The Joint’s merchandise booths and on Santana.com during the January run of Supernatural Santana: A Trip Through The Hits at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Jan. 7, 8, 9, 12, 14, 15 and 16.

During the visit today Carlos saw a painting and loved it so much he snapped some cell phone pics. He was then presented with the paining by BGCLV and one of the artists, 9-year old Azeem.
