The rhythm is gonna get you in October – if you are lucky enough to attend a special charity concert by Gloria Estefan.
The Latino singer will be performing at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Miami on October 24, in a special show to raise money for The Education Fund, which benefits public schools in Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and Indian River counties.
“Knowing that our school budgets have been severely affected by the economy, I felt it important to raise awareness and donate necessary funding to assist however we can,” said Estefan. “My mother was a school teacher, so I know first-hand the importance that teachers and education play in the lives of our youths. Education is really our future. If we don’t educate our kids, where are we going to go, so I think it’s important that somehow we find a way to make our educational system stronger.”
Tickets go on sale on August 15, and more information can be found at the Hard Rock website.
