West Virginia State Council sponsored a Salsa Social fundraiser in May near the national office in Silver Spring, MD.
The event is the brainchild of Army SFC Rafael Ortiz who is stationed at Ft. Meade, MD.
The fundraiser featured dancing and Latin music by Tito Puente, Jr., Angie Rivera, and Ortiz’s band, El Tumbao Urbano. There was a basic salsa dancing class by Victor H. Maysonet.
Over $4,400 was raised to benefit programming for Veterans Against Drugs and the national office’s annual winter coat donation for homeless veterans.
