Club ¡Tropicaliente!

Neighborhood Parents for the Hurley School

Friday, May 8, 2020 7pm–11pm

The Benjamin Franklin Institute

Each spring, hundreds of public education supporters flock to the South End’s most anticipated event, our retro-Latin nightclub, Club ¡TropiCaliente! The event features live Latin music, dancing, signature drinks, and Latin-inspired food from some of Boston’s best restaurants. Boston businesses sponsor the event and donate goods and services to the magnificent silent auction.

Live music from Grupo Fantasia — cha-cha-chá! — Food from Boston’s top restaurants — ¡Muy delicioso! — Signature cocktails, wine, and beer — ¡Salud!

The money raised will be used to build performing arts programming at the Hurley.  Currently, our school budget does not provide funding for music, dance, or theater instruction. However, with your support, NPHS can ensure that every child at the Hurley will have the enriching opportunities to experience the performing arts as part of their education.  NPHS is also funding efforts to remodel the school’s auditorium to allow for multi-use space, build the STEAM program and investing in the schoolyard to promote safety, learning and healthy play.

Online Auction

Online bidding will open on April 20th (look for our emails and announcements), and closes during the night of the event. You will be able to put your bids on items and keep up with the bidding online during the night. If you can’t attend the event, you can still keep track of your favorite items and bid on them. If you forget your phone at the event, we will have iPads available to make sure you can outbid anyone after your prize.

While we are updating our auction and preparing it to launch, you can register and update your account on the BiddingForGood web site. Make sure to connect the credit card you want the charges to go to to that account. We encourage you to set you maximum bid limit before the event.
