LOS ANGELES,–(HISPANIC PR WIRE – BUSINESS WIRE)–September 4, 2002–Manuel A. Delgado, who began crafting a guitar to help victims of the terrorist attacks of September 11, is among this year’s recipients of the Local Hero of the Year Award from Union Bank of California, N.A. in partnership with Public Broadcasting Station affiliates in Los Angeles, San Diego and Fresno.
Shortly after the East Coast tragedies, Manuel Delgado gave blood, donated money and prayed for the victims of the terrorist attacks but he didn’t think he was doing enough to help. So, he put his talent to work and began doing what he does best, hand-crafting the Unity Guitar.
Manuel made the guitar to have it signed by top entertainers with the purpose of auctioning it and donating the proceeds to victims of the terrorist attacks on the first anniversary.
