by | May 19, 2010

A group of Chileans living in Seattle are raising funds to help family and friends back home in the aftermath of the Feb. 27 earthquake.

The organization Chileans of the Northwest and LELO (Legacy of Equality, Leadership, and Organizing) have planned a cultural show and dance party on Saturday, May 22nd at Christ the King Church gymnasium located on 405 N 117th St. in Seattle.
Starting at 3pm, the mega show will include folk dances and music from South America, live and silent auctions, and typical Chilean food to enjoy. At 7:00 PM be ready to shake your body to the rhythm of Coco Loco Band and “Totiyo & Amigos” including Rumba, Cumbia, and Sabor Latino.
All funds will be spent rebuilding one of many devastated coastal communities of Chile.

The suggested donation is $10. For more information, email Bárbara Mendoza or call her at 206-523-2709.
