Capicu Cultural Showcase Is Making Christmas Wishes Come True…

 

 

WE ARE NOW AT 25% OF OUR GOAL…

PLEASE DONATE BY CLICKING HERE & USING THE INDIVIDUAL SPONSOR OPTION

Familia…

This year will mark our 4th Annual Pa'l Pueblo Christmas Charity Event to benefit the children of Bushwick United Headstart #4. I would be lying if I told you it has been easy and this year we were not able to get the corporate sponsorship we have been able to in the past. The good news is… that Papo and I are very stubborn and we have decided that we will push forward and make it happen yet another year.

What we do is have an event / fundraising campaign, buy presents, wrap them and deliver them to the children personally… with yours truly dresses up as Santa Jibaro Claus, Papo as my Head Elf,  an army of parent volunteers and volunteer elves.

What is different this year? Not much we expect the outcome to be the same as years past…(that means over 100 kids will be smiling) but our approach to making it happen is different. We have recruited a small army of Pa'l Pueblo X-Mas Elves that are helping us gather resources (donations, sponsorships etc) via our Eventbrite page.

This year, our Capicu Open Mic & parranda features the music of San Juan Hill- the Afro Latin Soul Band Collective from El Barrio! This live band combines innovative, original material with intense crowd moving performances, poured carefully into a pot of ingredients which include: Funk/ Soul, Latino Caribeno, Jazz, Brazilian, Hip Hop and House. All served with a side dish of Soultry vocals sung in Spanish, English, and Portuguese- Music for Struggle, Love and Life!

As if that was not enough, Capicu will open the mic to a very talented community of poets, comedians and musicians that support the cause.

We also decided to give back to YOU, our supporter… We have decided to raffle a Capicu Branded Compaq Full sized Lap Top Computer  (with a built in webcam) loaded with Windows 7 (see full specs here).

Raffle tickets are $15 at the door…and you must be present to win. The lucky winner will walk out with their prize on December 10th.

(We are also confirming on Wednesday the possibility of adding a Flat Screen TV to the mix…stay tuned)
