San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Californians Building Bridges is once again bringing close friend and world-renowned Cuban singer-songwriter, Carlos Varela, and his band to Northern California to perform a live benefit concert. He was recently featured on the HBO special, “Poet of Havana” and has provided concerts for our delegates traveling to Cuba. Carlos has become a very close friend of CBB, and he has agreed to perform this concert and help CBB to raise funds for the Father Usera Day Care Center.
The concert on December 2nd will benefit the Father Usera Daycare Center located in Havana. The daycare center makes it possible for single parents to work while their children are nurtured in a safe and healthy environment. It received international attention when Pope Francis visited there on his historic trip to Cuba. CBB has a very close relationship with Sister Teresa Vaz, Director of the day care center. This is just one example of CBB's continued effort to support humanitarian exchanges between the people of Cuba and California.
