He will bring his captivating live show to The Crill Performance Hall at Point Loma Nazarene University on Saturday, May 17 at 8 p.m.  

General seating is $35 and premium seating is $50. This show is open to guests of all ages.

The proceeds from this event will benefit Bodhi Tree Concerts. Bodhi Tree Concerts is a nonprofit organization and a winner of a San Diego Bravo award.  

Bodhi Tree presents music events and is dedicated to hiring 100 percent locally and giving 100 percent of profits back to charity. Since its inception three years ago, it has presented nine concerts, donated to nine worthy charitable organizations and hired more than 50 San Diego artists. 

Since 1986, Winston has been raising money for food banks and service organizations and will continue to do so by working with a local food bank in every tour market to hold a canned food drive at the show and by donating 100 percent of his merchandise sales to the organization. 

At this show he will work with Mama’s Kitchen.  Mama’s Pantry, a service of Mama’s Kitchen, provides a nutritional shopping opportunity at no cost for men, women and children of San Diego County affected by HIV/AIDS.   For more information, visit mamaskitchen.org.
