Viva Vino Gala

Nuestras Raíces community center (NRCC) is on a mission to provide a sense of belonging through well-being and holistic services to empower our communities and promote a more equitable economy. The gala benefits out youth program, Latinos Unidos eN Acción Alianza (LUNAA). A student-community engagement program that is designed to introduce Latino/a/e Hispanic students to Spokane by connecting them with resources, services, scholarships and graduation recognition to enhance the academic, cultural and emotional well-being. LUNA’s counterpart Alianza is our LGBTQ+ program where we provide a safe space, peer support, and other resources for the LGBTQ+Latine community. For 27 years, NRCC has been awarding academic and cultural scholarships to youth pursuing post-secondary education and fellowship opportunities.

The evening will open with a cocktail hour, live mariachi, and silent auction from 6pm to 7pm. Dinner will be served at 7:30pm with live entertainment- Flamenco and Folklorico. Followed by a message from our executive director and then a live auction to keep raising funds. We invite you to stay after the live auction to dance the night away.

This year, NRCC awarded $24,000 in academic scholarships, $3,500 in cultural youth scholarships, four summer paid fellowships, over 1,000 hours in youth peer counseling, and engaged 275 new students to participate in cultural events, community and civic engagement.
