In 2007, Willie Nelson & Family helped raise funds to build a new play ground for the students of the Peru Catholic School, in Peru, Illinois. Proceeds from the concert purchased new equipment for the school. The children made posters for Willie, and they were hanging all over the venue, and Buddy Prewitt, Willie Nelson’s lighting director, kindly photographed the posters and cards and sent them to me to share here. The concert was part of the ‘Concerts for a Cause’ series produced by Louise La Grotto restaurant in Peru.
This is one of the hundred or so cards given to Willie Nelson by the students at the Peru Catholic School.
Posters were hung everywhere.
