I don’t know about you, but I find the excuse to dress up and experience a little glitz and glamour now and then to be a fun and exciting departure from my usual entertainment style. Well, El Jogorio Navideno provides one with the opportunity to do just that and, at the same time,  make a contribution to a great cause. This annual fundraiser gala is one of the biggest Latino parties of the year in Massachusetts. It has been going strong for 20 years and has grown to attract a crowd of 3,500 or so participants. The festivities originally began within the local Puerto Rican community, but have sense expanded their cultural borders somewhat, offering guests an evening of premier Latin entertainment of all kinds. Naturally, this would include a great line-up of Latin music ensembles! There’ll be plenty of dancing and ethnic food, as well.

As always, I am a huge fan of any event that brings world music and fundrasing for global cultural causes together. All of the proceeds from El Jolgorio Navideno go to support the projects of the non-profit organization El Jolgorio de Massachusetts, Inc. which is dedicated to insuring a strong presense of traditional Latino culture within the local community. A large part of their efforts are directed towards educational programs for Latino youth. Many of the personalities associated with this fine organization will be recognized during the festivites, so this looks to be quite an interesting and event-filled evening. This popular event is expected to sell-out, so purchase your tickets as soon as possible!
