Centro Hispano of Dane County and VEA Events will host “An Evening of Dreaming” in September, a dinner series meant to celebrate the Madison Latinx community.
The event, which will be hosted at Centro Hispano of Dane County’s building on Madison’s southside, will be the last event in the organization’s current space, according to a statement from the agency. Following the dinner series, Centro Hispano of Dane County’s building will be undergoing a renovation. The renovation is apart of Design for a Difference, a national campaign focused on helping nonprofit organizations complete design makeovers.
Centro Hispano of Dane County was founded in 1983 to meet the emergent needs of Cuban refugees recently settled in Madison, according to their website. As the Latinx community in Dane County grew, the organization expanded its services. The agency now serves an average of 2,500 families and 4,000 individuals each year.
The September event will also feature a temporary art exhibition, made up of visual, audible and edible works of art. The event’s menus will be created by a series of local chefs, and will feature works of art by a myriad of Madison artists.
The dinner series will take place on Friday, Sept. 22 and Saturday, Sept. 23. For more information and to purchase tickets visit here.
