Benefit Concert for the Caribbean & Mexico – Raíces Student Ensemble – Oct. 7, 2017


On October 7, the Raíces Cultural Center helped co-sponsor and promote the Benefit Concert for the Caribbean & Mexico hosted by the Reformed Church of Highland Park and the Puerto Rican Action Board. The Raíces Student Ensemble kicked off the performance with bomba from Puerto Rico and shared the stage with a number of talented groups and performers. Special thanks to Cassandra Oliveras-Moreno who was instrumental in organizing this event and to all who took part in making it happen. This benefit raised over $3,700 which was split between grassroots organizations providing relief services in Puerto Rico, Dominica and Mexico.
