Darien, CT - Marking the first anniversary of Hurricane Maria, First Congregational Church of Darien is sponsoring an evening of Puerto Rican music and food to raise money to help rebuild the village of Mariana, Puerto Rico.
The benefit will celebrate Puerto Rican culture, with music provided by the Norwalk-based Latin Music band “Park City” and Puerto Rican food donated by the New Haven-based restaurant La Esquina Del Mofongo. Funds raised through the concert will be used to help the people of Mariana to work together to convert an abandoned schoolhouse in Mariana into a new community center, El Centro de Imaginación, that will support education and development of village children and attract visitors for both the arts and business. The facility will also provide shelter from future storms.
