Named for Ruth Paz, a US native who dedicated her life to help the underprivileged children of Honduras, the Ruth Paz Hospital for Burns and Pediatric Surgery is a program of the Ruth Paz Foundation, which has been active in seeking medical treatment for children for over 30 years. "My mother was an incredible guardian for the children of Honduras and I am honored that the musicians of New Orleans would come together for this important cause," said Michael Paz.
In May of 2000, a diverse group of musicians and fans gathered at the Howlin' Wolf for Paz Fest 1, a memorable night of music that started the fundraising effort to support the Ruth Paz Hospital for Burns and Pediatric Surgery. The project broke ground in 2004 and was completed in August 2010. A CD of Paz Fest 1 was released and continues to fund this very important project. It can be purchased at http://www.cdbaby.com/pazfest. Thirteen years later, Paz Fest III will celebrate the music of Joni Mitchell and support hospital and will be recorded for a new recording.
