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 and caterers — ¡Muy delicioso! — Signature cocktails, wine, and beer — ¡Salud!

The money raised supports program enrichment, including recess support and inclusive play, Open Circle anti-bullying curriculum, tutoring, theater arts, visual arts, music instruction, test prep, after-school programs, mentoring and sports; facilities improvements; technology for the classrooms and community building at the school.

Online Auction

Online bidding will open on at the end of April (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 at the event, if you forget your phone, 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.

If you already have an account with BiddingForGood, you are all set, just make sure that that credit card is still valid.
