VERO BEACH – Rock City Gardens will once again host Children’s Home Society of Florida, Treasure Coast Division’s signature event Tumba La Casa, slated for Saturday, April 16. Located at 9080 US Highway 1 in Wabasso, the garden scene will provide an ideal backdrop to one of the season’s most sizzling soirees. “We had such a great turnout and response from last year’s event that we began planning this year’s event immediately afterwards.” explained event co-chairs Abby D’Haessler and Melissa Shine.  “We are maintaining the Latin theme with some special surprises that will close out the social season with a big bang. This year guests can opt for a VIP perks package that will include reserved seating, a gourmet dinner and drinks served tableside.”

CHS recently announced that it combined its two signature events into one end-of-season extravaganza. Moving forward, the best of “Rockin’ Vero Beach” will be combined for a single celebration under the Tumba La Casa brand.
