Over 20 Costa Rican personalities are coming together for a great cause, to provide 25,000 library books in braille to distribute to public libraries throughout the country.
Part of the project Puntos de Luz is a concert to be held this Thursday at the Melico Salazar Popular Theater. Singers, actors and athletes will show off their talents. Among them will be Pedro Capmany, Elena Zúñiga and Adrián Goizueta, the Paraíso Symphony Orchestra, the Youthful Parade Choir of Paradise, actors Mauricio Meléndez, Leynar Gómez, Eloy Mora and Gustavo Rojas, writer Óscar Castro and the boxer Hanna Gabriels. There will also be journalists and an interpreter. Proceeds will go to the TSIÖ Association to print the books.
