Description

We are doing it again! Artists, Musicians, Promoters and other businesses and organizations are coming together for one night to raise funds a good cause. But this time we are doing a collaborative effort with the United States Marine Corps Toys 4 Tots, the American Legion, Marine Corps League and several other veteran organizations across the city among others to help collect new, unwrapped toys during the holiday season to give to less fortunate children for Christmas gifts as well as help raise funds for Soldiers Who Salsa, a nonprofit organization using movement therapy and dance to help enrich the lives of our wounded and injured veterans and active duty military.

Let's help underprivelaged children have a birghter Christmas

On Dec. 18th 2017 from 7pm to 12am, the last Monday before Christmas, bring a new unwrapped toy and come dance and see a live Salsa concert sponsored by the Chicago Internation Salsa Congress. The Unified Chicago Salsa Orchestra (comprised of over 30 musicians) plus at least 6 DJs will be spinning the hottest Latin music. Tickets and door cover to the event is only $10 of which 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the veteran nonprofit organization as well as 100% of the toys collected will be given to the Marine Corps Toys 4 Tots foundation.
