Hot music for a cool cause! Dance to live music by 6-piece band Salsa del Soul while helping to protect habitat for our beloved migratory songbirds.

Twice each year, these small birds travel thousands of miles between their breeding grounds in the Midwest and wintering grounds in Central and South America.

Proceeds from ticket sales will support habitat restoration, land acquisition, and conservation easement projects in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and in the birds’ wintering grounds in Costa Rica.

Popular Twin Cities-based Salsa del Soul performs a variety of dance genres of the Spanish speaking Caribbean, with infectious rhythms that are easy to dance to. For fun, learn some new moves by coming at 7:30 for a little dance instruction by the fabulous Hanna Esparza of Salsabrosa.

Your ticket purchase will help these “birds without borders” by protecting the natural landscapes they need. Funds will support habitat restoration, land acquisition, and conservation easements here in in MN/WI and in Costa Rica.

Chips and salsa bar, light appetizers as well as wine, beer and non-alcoholic beverages will be available.
