La Luz Center is going on safari this year with “Noché Out of Africa,” set for Saturday, Aug. 3, at Jack London State Historic Park. The center’s annual “Noche” fundraisers have been selling out early, so it’s best to buy early for this party. Tickets are on sale now by calling 938-5010.
One of the most extravagant night’s of the year, event chair Marcelo Defreitas is known for his impeccable attention to detail in party planning. Every decoration, every entertainment attraction and every bite of food is meticulously planned for months to ensure guests have a rich thematic experience while also supporting La Luz. Expect up-close encounters with wild creatures, both animal and human, at this fundraising event.
All proceeds benefit La Luz Center, which empowers the community with a wide range of education, leadership and self-advocacy programs, with special attention to the immigrant population. Programs range from health and wellness checks with the mobile health van to English language and computer classes.
