Last night at The Plaza Hotel in Manhattan, The Bronx was in the house in full effect as Casita Maria celebrated its ‘Fiestas 2015’
The high profiled event, which serves as a fundraiser for the 80 year old organization, honored individuals such as John Bernbach, Veronique and Bob Pittman, and Baz Luhrmann, creator of the Netflix original series, ‘The Get Down’ based in The South Bronx of the 70s which premieres in 2016.
But the highlight of the evening seemed to be Casita Maria’s Executive Director, Sarah Calderon, rocking a dope graffiti gown by our very own Tats Cru.
Casita Maria has been an integral part of our borough especially in The South Bronx, enriching the lives of thousands of children throughout the decades.
Some of the more notable alumni from the organization are the late and great Tito Puente, David Gonzalez, Ricky Flores, Joe Conzo Jr, Benny Bonilla, Tats Cru’s own BG 183, Tina Ramirez who founded Ballet Hispanico and so many others.
Now let’s talk about REAL avant garde Bronx fashion!
