Save the DATE!

On May 1st Latino Heritage will have its first formal fundraiser at the Pasadena Senior Center.
An Evening at the Danzon will be a recreation of the Latino social scene during the Post World War II years in Pasadena.

Guests will have the opportunity to participate in an evening that will include a dancing lesson, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, and dancing to live music. The schedule is listed on the image.

The Danzon was a Studio Club that existed on Holly Street from 1947 to 1954. Daniel Castro, Sr., and Sergio Lopez, Sr. who had the dream of the Danzon and later managed it.

Having a supper club was very much a part of the Mexican American scene during this era. The couples in the flyer are members of the Guerrero family at Lalo Guerrero's club in East L.A. Also pictured is Gracy Lopez, a glamorous and talented beauty.

Individual tickets are $78. Tables are available at $60/ticket. Tickets will be on sale beginning Monday, April 11th via Brown Paper Tickets.

As the flyer states - period attire will be encouraged!
