Chicas Latinas de Sacramento had a blast in November and we are excited to close out 2017 with a giving December. But first, a recap:
Chicas Latinas joined Sacramento Young Professionals of Color at their November Happy Hour event to officially launch our 2018 “Starting Off on the Right Foot” shoe drive, benefiting D.W. Babcock Elementary School. We packed the house and raised over $1,000 for our shoe drive! Stay tuned for future events and ways you (or your business) can give in 2018.
Thank you to everyone who joined #TeamChicas on Thanksgiving morning at Run To Feed The Hungry, benefiting Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services!
#TeamChicas will continue our Wednesday evening runs, until further notice (stay tuned for winter Zumba!).
