LAS VEGAS  (Dec. 3, 2010) — Carlos Santana has selected the winning artwork in a t-shirt design contest held among Boys & Girls Clubs of Las Vegas (B&GCLV) Club members.  As a resident of Las Vegas, the contest continues Santana’s philanthropic mission to support the local community by enhancing the lives of children.

Created by a B&GCLV Club kid, the winning design will be incorporated into a limited-edition t-shirt and sold at The Joint’s merchandise booths and on Santana.com when Santana returns to The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in January for Supernatural Santana: A Trip Through The Hits.

The artwork, created by Imani, age 12 from Lied Memorial Clubhouse, features a colorful rendering of Santana displaying a gesture of peace alongside his PRS Signature Guitar. As the winner of the contest, Imani will get to meet Carlos in person this January as well as attend a performance of Supernatural Santana: A Trip Through The Hits. Additionally, Director of Licensing & Merchandise for Santana Management Dan DeSerpa will talk with Imani about the steps involved in taking her design and producing it on the t-shirts.

“It’s going to be awesome to see my artwork on a shirt,” remarked Imani.  “Since people from all over the world come to see his show, I will be able to say that someone in Europe is wearing my artwork!”

Held November 1 – 16, the contest was open to all members of the Club ages 11-17.  Participants were asked to create a drawing inspired by an image of Santana’s PRS Signature Guitar.  Proceeds from the shirt will support B&GCLV.  Supernatural Santana: A Trip Through The Hits returns to The Joint January 5, 7, 8, 9, 12, 14, 15 and 16, with additional performances April 20, 22, 23, 24, 27, 29, 30  and May 1.
