Music superstars Juanes and Juan Luis Guerra today announce they will soon be taking to the stage to assist victims of Hurricane Sandy. The two Latin music icons, in partnership with Barclays Center and producer Cardenas Marketing Network (CMN), will be donating all proceeds from their highly anticipated November 24th concert to the American Red Cross – to support ongoing efforts to aid victims of last week's devastating disaster.

"We've both been blessed to have had extraordinary support throughout our careers from fans in the New York area and across the Caribbean. With so many people from these regions now facing immense hardships, we want to show our deep appreciation by utilizing our music to both raise spirits and more importantly, raise much-needed funds to help them through these times of great need." – Juanes & Juan Luis Guerra

Set to take place shortly after the upcoming LATIN GRAMMY Awards, where Juan Luis Guerra and Juanes hold a combined 10 nominations, the special November 24th (8:00 p.m.) benefit show will mark the first-ever Latin show at the new, state-of-the-art Barclays Center. Tickets can now be purchased via www.ticketmaster.com or by calling 1-800-745-3000.

"Hurricane Sandy has devastated the lives of many people and we are eager to work with the Red Cross as they provide assistance for those affected," said Henry Cardenas, Chief Executive Officer/President of CMN and co-founder of the Maestro Cares Foundation. "All proceeds from our show will go toward the Red Cross and we invite music goers and the community at large to support them and work quickly towards providing comfort to those who have lost so much."

More than 5,000 Red Cross workers from all over the country are supporting shelters, providing food and water at fixed sites, and driving through neighborhoods to distribute meals and supplies throughout the affected areas including New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut.

"The devastation brought by Hurricane Sandy has affected millions of people, but thanks to the support of generous donors such as Juan Luis Guerra, Juanes and CMN, the Red Cross is there for them, providing immediate relief now, and staying on the job as people move toward recovery," said Roger Lowe, Senior Vice President of Communications of the American Red Cross. "We're grateful for their dedication to helping the Red Cross help those who need us."

Goya, the presenting sponsor of the show, has donated 300,000 pounds of Goya products and 25,000 meals to victims, while the Department of Tourism of the Dominican Republic, an inviting sponsor, is also providing support to those affected by Sandy.
