The 8th annual event will take place on Saturday, May 9, from 5 p.m.–9:30 p.m. and will be held at the Girls Inc. campus (5315 Foothill Rd., Carpinteria). The celebration will be filled with authentic food, music and more! Grammy Award-winning Mariachi Divas de Cindy Shea, an all-female ensemble from Los Angeles, will headline the event.
“Mariachi Encuentro is a wonderful occasion to celebrate Mexican culture and dance to live, award-winning music, while helping to make a difference in the lives of local girls,” says Victoria Juarez, executive director of Girls Inc. of Carpinteria. “Mariachi raises critical funds for Girls Inc. so that we can continue to grow our programs and nurture local girls to become confident and self-sufficient, inspiring them to reach their full potential.” The event’s proceeds will benefit the nonprofit’s programs and scholarships for young women and girls in the community.
