Isabella's Gift: Our Next Fundraiser
Our Next Fundraiser
We are a very pleased to announce a few details about our next event fundraiser, The Art of Giving at the On Broadway Nightclub in downtown San Diego, CA.
We booked the band we wanted and they are awesome! Orquesta Tabaco Y Ron’s is a 12 piece “Big-Band” orchestra, composed of musicians from all over Latin America including Puerto Rico, Cuba, Costa Rica, Venezuela, Peru, Colombia and Mexico.
OTR’s high-energy, hard-edged brand of salsa music has appealed to devoted salsa dancers and Latin music DJ’s worldwide. OTR’s contagious rhythms produce an energy that revives the almost extinct salsa sound of generations past.
