Several border communities have been hit hard by the recent rains and subsequent floods caused by Hurricane Alex. Monterrey, Reynosa, and Piedras Negras in northern Mexico are among the hardest hit cities along the Rio Grande Valley.

Most of these cities experienced high floodwaters that knocked out streets, bridges, houses and more. 

Now comes the SA Border Relief Concert. It is a big show set for tonight presented by Dr. Alma Aguado, Grace Hernandez and Michael Salgado.

The concert is set at the concert grounds parking lot in front of Cattlemen's Square Bar & Grill. It will feature  Michael Salgado, Juan Ramos, Patsy Torres, Ram Herrera, Los Desperadoz,Tropa F, Fama,  Volado, Raulito Navaira, Leslie Lujo, Jorge Alejando, Final Cut, Benny

Cattleman's Bar & Grill is located at 915 W. Houston. Concert is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. Thursday, July 22.

There will also be 15 food booths. 

For details call (210) 970-1071. Admission is a $10 bag of cleaning supplies or bag of groceries.
