Tumba La Casa to benefit Children’s Home Society

VERO BEACH — Siesta now, because it is almost Salsa Time. Back by popular demand, the Children’s Home Society will host its second annual Tumba La Casa (translation: bring down the house) at Rock City Gardens, 7:00 pm, Saturday, April 24.

Featuring Guatemala’s number one rock band, ‘El Tambor de la Tribu,’ this event promises to be a lively, salsa-dancing, margarita-drinking evening in an outdoor garden setting at Rock City Gardens, located on US 1 in Wabasso.  The sounds of El Tambor de la Tribu merge different rhythms of Latin music with rock, reggae, soul and ska, achieving a lively, yet sentimental Latin pop rock mix.  Their first album earned them Best New Artist, Best Pop Band, Best Song and Best Album in 2005 and 2006 in Guatemala. “This is such a fun, upbeat, festive event in support of CHS,” says Marta Schneider, Chairwoman of the Indian River division of Children’s Home Society. “And El Tambor de la Tribu promises to be a big hit with all ages. I know first-hand, as they played at my daughter’s wedding in Guatemala.”

Latin America hors d’oeuvres and food stations will be provided, along with a selection of beer from Guatemala’s brewery – Cervecería Centro Americana.  The festive, upbeat evening will include fun, photos, games, and a special version of “Pick Your Pinata.”

Hors d’oeuvres, beer, wine, and a flavored margarita bar are included in the $60 per person or $100 for two ticket price. A VIP area with reserved seating for tables of eight, complete with champagne and upgraded hors d’oeuvres, is available for $750 per table.

A full bar will be available on a cash basis.  Attire is resort casual as the event takes place in the green house tent and surrounding gardens at Rock City Gardens.  Tickets for this event are limited and will not last long.

Buy tickets online at www.tumbalacasa.org, or stop by Dale Sorensen Real Estate at 3206 Cardinal Drive, Decorative Arts at 1923 Old Dixie Highway or David Francis Furniture at 3990 US 1.

All proceeds from the event will support Children’s Home Society programs including adoption, education, transitional living, advocacy, case management and housing.  The Treasure Coast division of the Children’s Home Society serves more than 9,000 children and their families each year in Okeechobee, Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River counties.  CHS is not a governmental agency and must rely on the support of individuals, civic groups, businesses, etc. for the funds to give these children the chance to be safe, healthy and prepared for life.
