A Night in Havana

Friday, May 10 from 5-8 p.m.

Join the Hammond Regional Arts Center to celebrate their annual Membership Gala and experience the sights, sounds, and flavors of a hot Havana night! This evening is not to be missed as we celebrate the members of HRAC, whose membership supports HRAC's mission in making the arts accessible every day in our community.

Guests will feel as if they've walked into a Havana paradise as they sip down delicious Cuban specialty drinks and enjoy appetizers from Mojito's Bistro. Get ready to sizzle, salsa, and swoon to the music of Julio and Cesar band. Attendees can also enjoy our pop-up art display of authentic cigar box guitars. This event is free to current and renewing members of HRAC and open to the public for the cost of joining the Arts Center.

Basic membership costs $30 and memberships are available as low as $15 for students and $20 for military and seniors. Join HRAC or update your membership for 2019 at hammondarts.org/support-and-membership and then experience a night of old-world glamour on Friday, May 10th! Special thanks to this year's Gala sponsors The Red White & Brew Boutique de Fumee, and Alexis Ducorbier of State Farm.
