There’s still time to get your tickets for Tía Chucha's Gala 2019!

Time is ticking, but you still have a chance to get tickets to this year’s Tía Chucha's Gala, which is being held on Saturday, October 26, 6:00 p.m., at Plaza de Cultura y Artes, 501 N. Main Street, in downtown Los Angeles. There will be wonderful food, music, dancing, honorees, and a silent auction.

As you very likely already know, Tía Chucha’s Centro Cultural in Sylmar began as a café, bookstore and cultural space owned and run by former Los Angeles Poet Laureate Luis J. Rodríguez, his wife Trini Rodríguez, and their brother-in-law Enrique Sánchez. Tía Chucha’s provides year-round on-site and off-site free or low-cost arts and literacy bilingual intergenerational programming in mural painting, music, dance, writing, visual arts, healing arts sessions (such as reiki healing) and healing/talking circles. Workshops and activities also include Mexica ("Aztec") dance, indigenous cosmology/philosophy, and two weekly open mic nights (one in Spanish, the other in English). Tía Chucha’s host author readings, film screenings, and art exhibits as well.

Tía Chucha's Gala not only allows the community to come together and celebrate our collective achievements, it also allows a celebratory space to honor those who have given to our community. Also, it provides a chance to help raise the much-needed resources to continue Tía Chucha's mission.

So, please buy your tickets now by going here. And we look forward to seeing you!
