Physician Musician-Local Psychiatrist hosts virtual concert to raise funds to support children’s mental health

Dr. Osvaldo Gaytan, founder of the El Paso Child Mental Health Fund, a fund of the Paso del Norte Community Foundation, will perform a virtual concert this Father’s Day weekend.

The concert, set for June 19 at 6:30 p.m. is to raise funds to support the El Paso Child Guidance Center’s capital campaign.

“I am hosting this concert with a goal of raising $15,000 to support the El Paso Child Guidance Center and their capital campaign. This donation will allow them to add a new Parent Child Interactive Therapy Room and I will personally donate $5,000 towards this goal” said Gaytan,

“This concert will not only raise funds to expand mental health services for our youth, but will also be in honor of my father, Osvaldo Gaytan Sr., who passed away last year.”

The El Paso Child Guidance Center has been raising funds to renovate its Central El Paso clinic and double its capacity. This expansion and state- of -the art environment will allow children and their families, especially those who were impacted by the August 3rd tragedy, to receive critical services needed to heal.

The proposed renovations will add an additional 2,200 square feet of space and two new therapy spaces.

Tickets are $20 and upon purchase individuals can send a song request for Dr. Gaytan to play during this virtual event. “The concert will begin at 6:30 p.m. and will end once I have played every song request,” said Dr. Gaytan.
