Interfaith Fundraiser Smash Success
By Columnist Alan Eisenberg
On June 13th, Near Southside Interfaith Older Adult Programs held a fundraiser at the Kosciuszko Community Center. The theme for the event was “Salsa Anyone?” It was a wonderful luncheon and Salsa Competition, and a full house attended. Ramon Orozco and Tres Hermanos provided amazing food for the luncheon. The entrants for the Salsa Competition were Alderman Jose G. Perez, County Supervisor Peggy West, and Alan D. Eisenberg (me!) I am thrilled to say that I won by popular vote, and I will not reveal my secret recipe. Dozens of people were allowed to taste the entries and vote. The invocation was delivered by Father Jose Moreno of St. Patrick’s Congregation. The Ballet Folklorico provided excellent entertainment. There was also a silent auction with many items. Margarita Garcia Guerrero, Executive Director of the organization was the hostess with the mostest! The sponsors were: Horny Goat, Super Mercado, Dazzling Designs by Tracy, Paul Mitchell Salon, Carmen Santa Anna, Margarita Garcia-Guerrero <firstname.lastname@example.org>, Discovery World, Zoological Society, Allen Edmonds, Milwaukee Community Acupuncture, Kosciuszko Community Center, Milwaukee County Parks, Patricia West, Paula Kessel, Celeste Contreras, SPIN Milwaukee, Marie Koch, El Rey, County Supervisor Peggy Romo West, Cathy Padgett, Andre Simms and Ballet Folklorico and Hermanos Aviles.
