BEN BOLT – Five Mariachi Azul Y Plata performers were in need of their performance attire and with the local economy the organization was unsure where the money would come from.

Each Mariachi uniform costs approximately $550.

Phone calls were made and the International Bank of Commerce (IBC) and its Chief Executive Officer Renato Ramirez came to their assistance.

On Tuesday, Javier Ramirez, marketing director for IBC Bank, presented the students and their director Jonas Quintanilla, at the Ben Bolt – Palito Blanco High School, with a check for $3,000.

The students will be fitted for their Mariachi attire this weekend.
