Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Chris Kenny has been one of Vallarta's most acclaimed "Blues" singers at local venues, restaurants and bars for many years. Chris first got her start in PV performing at Dreams Resorts. During the low season, she has also been a headliner on Alaskan cruises.
Before Chris headed back to Kingston, Canada for medical treatment, "Friends of Chris Kenny" put together a "Chris Kenny Benefit" at El Rio Restaurant & Bar on Saturday, December 2nd. Over 400 people attended the afternoon of music and friendship that raised funds to assist Chris. There were door prizes and a 50/50 raffle that was generously donated back to Chris Kenny and many local businesses donated paintings, jewelry, trips and other gifts for the silent auction.
Tammy Prust helped put together the fundraiser and was assisted by Trish Hudson, Brett LaMar, Patti Grace, Kathleen Lutz, Marilyn McPhail and Kurt Sinner.Now a "GoFundMe" page has been started for Chris to provide additional funds for her living expenses and cancer treatment. Chris has contributed so much as a musician to the Puerto Vallarta music scene over the years and she now needs our help her during this difficult time. Please consider making a donation, so Chris can concentrate on getting better and doesn't have to worry about medical and living expenses.
