Noche with La Casa

This year we have something special planned for our signature “Noche with La Casa” event. We invite you to join us on Tuesday, September 26th, 2017 in the brand new Dahnke Ballroom inside the new Duncan Student Center at the University of Notre Dame. That is part of the additional buildings around the Notre Dame Football Stadium.

summer2017La Casa de Amistad is proud that since 1973 we have been here to serve this community and be a partner in the success of many local families. This year we celebrate past successes, but also prepare to face additional challenges and ask you join us in raising critical funds for our programs.

5:30PM to 7PM Silent Auction
Last year we nearly raised $5,000 in our silent auction and this year with the help of The Frame Factory and others, we are hoping to increase that to $10,000! The auction will feature items from I Heart South Bend swag, museum passes, La Casa polos, and fine art. We will have something for everyone! We will have art work from national artists, and some from of our students right here at La Casa and all professionally framed! Bookmark this page as we will post a list of silent auction items as we gather them.

7PM Dinner & Program
Our annual dinner theme this year is based on Latino Magical Realism. Although a literary term, it greatly describes the intricacies and depth of Latino culture and folklore in general. It is a journey into the psyche of Latino thought that explores and intertwines the fantastical, its traditions, its myths, and its political/social climate and commentary, which are fused together into an almost real ever-present cultural reality.

La Casa’s youth will be conducting a cultural presentation during the event. Our dinner this year will be hosted by Darla Hernandez Lippert from WSBT 22. Our Humanity Knows No Borders award winner this year is Federico “Chico” Rodriguez (announcement). During the dinner, we will recognize some of our other annual awards and raise funds for a special program.
