Kids Korps sponsors Red Haute Tango fundraiser

COAST CITIES — Kids Korps USA is preparing to heat up San Diego with its annual Super Star Gala, in the spirit of Latin culture. The “Red Haute Tango” gala is set for 5 p.m. May 6 at The Grand Del Mar, 5300 Grand Del Mar Way.
Guests will join Gala Chairpersons Maggie and Gary Bobileff, Honorary Chairpersons Denise and Bertrand Hug, and Community Chairpersons Connie and Bill McNally, in a celebration infused with fiery flavors, cocktails, and salsa dancing al fresco. Guaranteed to be “Red Haute,” this exotic evening will also feature a captivating tango-inspired performance by the alluring Yesenia Adame-Walter of “Dancing with the Stars,” along with a dinner and silent and live auctions. As a culminating accompaniment, guests will then retire to the Cigar Lounge to enjoy a coffee station, a cigar roller, after dinner drinks, and Latin beats.
Joani Wafer, co-founder and chief executive officer Kids Korps USA, says she looks forward to the event as “we have so many wonderful volunteers and supporters to recognize this year. The Super Star Gala, is, more than ever, a cause for celebration as we recognize great friends, wonderful partners, and the more than 1,300 projects and 100,000 hours served in just this past year.”
Proceeds from Red Haute Tango will support Kids Korps’ year-round programs that engage young people, ages 5 through 25, in community service.
This year’s gala will also recognize 2011 Honorees including long-time supporters Teresa and Dave Miller and Family, Kids Korps Chapter Leadership Award; Dana and Bill Knees and family with the Kids Korps Chapter Leadership Award; McLaren Martin, Teen Korps Leadership Award for Rancho Santa Fe Rotary (Kids Korps Community Leadership Award); and Sempra Energy Foundation (Kids Korps Corporate Leadership Award).
