    HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, KY- Northern Kentucky University’s Latino Institute for Excellence (LIFE) and the English Language Learning Foundation, Inc. (ELLF) have joined efforts to raise funds to benefit Puerto Rico after the devastation of hurricanes Irma and Maria last September. “An Evening of Dinner and Puerto Rican Musical Performances” aims to be an enchanting evening filled with amazing musical performances, including the CSYO Nouveau Chamber Players, followed by a dance with the performance of the Cincinnati-based Latin music ensemble Son del Caribe! The event will take place on Saturday, December 2, 2017 from 6:00 p.m.-9:30 p.m. at Northern Kentucky University’s Student Union Ballroom.
    This fundraiser will help alleviate relief efforts to provide necessary aid to the people of Puerto Rico as they recover and reconstruct during the aftermath of hurricanes Irma and Maria. According to FEMA, “Hurricane Maria was a catastrophic event causing damage beyond that of most storms.” Rebuilding the island, according to FEMA, will take years.
    NKU’s LIFE and the ELL Foundation, Inc. extend an open invitation to the Greater Cincinnati area for “An Evening of Dinner and Puerto Rican Musical Performances” in favor of Puerto Rico. Tickets are $75.00 per person and a table of 10 chairs is $750.00. Checks and donations can be made to the following:
