El Arbolito de la Esperanza

The Star of Hope campaign officially begins on December 6th, with the Tree of Hope (Arbolito de la Esperanza) lighting event. The lighting  represents rays of  hope  for Hispanic/Latino children by initiating the collection of Estrella de la Esperanza (Stars of Hope) donations.  

The tree lighting of the tree is preceded by a traditional Latin celebration in which the public participates in a pot-luck  dinner with Holiday foods from different Latin American countries. 

Local Latino musicians volunteer their time to play music and help the audience sing along to  villancicos and agüinaldos (traditional holiday songs).

In preparation for the Three Kings Day Parade (Desfile del Día de los Reyes) on Saturday, January 4th, 2014, the selection of the Parade Princess and Prince will be made. 

Thanks for the information

    This sounds like a lot of fun. Does the potluck mean everyone attending brings food?

      Hola Cat.... I talked to somebody that went a couple years ago.... She said that there are volunteers there that bring the food. So, you don't have to bring anything. Just make sure to make a donation.
