South Bronx con El Sur de Puerto Rico is an evening of poetry, live music, dance, theater and food for the soul in the heart of the South Bronx, benefiting the ongoing earthquake relief effort on behalf of the people on the Island of Puerto Rico (U.S. citizens).

This special cultural pop-up fundraiser is supporting El Maestro, Inc.’s “New York con Puerto Rico” project that has been collecting much-needed supplies for the relief assistance effort. All proceeds will go toward providing much-need on-the-ground assistance in Puerto Rico in partnership with El Maestro and their network of vetted grassroots organizations already mobilized on the Island, as well as ensuring all donated supplies are not “lost in transit” and reach the intended impacted communities.

Cultural Program Curated & M.C.d by Mariposa, featuring: Bombazo Dance Co., Devin Trey Campbell (Open Hydrant, Kinky Boots & currently on ABCs hit comedy Single Parents), Enso Taves, The Boogie Down All Stars, Athena Colon, Alba Delia Hernandez, Raul Gorras Moris and others!
