Congreso’s Gala Latina


Last March, 20 was held a journey with Congreso to the north of Cuzco through the sacred Urubamba Valley, to the hill of Machu Picchu where Emperors and Gods have walked.

Congreso de Latinos Unidos (Congreso), Philadelphia’s leading nonprofit organization that strengthens Latino communities and fights against poverty through education, employment, health, and safety, was hosting its Fourth Annual Black Tie Gala Latina: A Night in Machu Picchu.

Without going out of Philadelphia guests rediscovered “the lost city of the Incas” as they dined on traditional Peruvian cuisine, enjoyed performances by Andean dancers and musicians in native costumes, and danced to the beat of a nine-piece salsa band.

Latinos, friends of Latinos, and other luminaries throughout the Greater Philadelphia region gathered together for a night of gourmet Peruvian fare and cocktails, authentic live entertainment, and dancing.

The Bellevue’s Grand Ballroom became a portal into one of the world’s most enchanting cultural sites.
