The band with kids from ages 7 to 18 had performances canceled due to the pandemic. So a neighbor asked Juan Lucero if he could start an online fundraiser. In 24 hours, over $25,000 was donated to the family

“I want to say thank you to them,” daughter Maya Lucero said. “I can’t believe this many people helped us out I’m speechless.”

“It can be hard to ask for help, but I’m glad we did,” son Diego Lucero said. “It makes me happy.” Source: Chicago mariachi family known as Cielito Lindo facing eviction in Andersonville; community raises over $25K – ABC7 Chicago
