Christmas Spirit at Casa de la Cuesta
By Donna Quathamer
Want to get in the Christmas spirit? What better way than to spend a December afternoon in a beautiful setting, enjoying refreshments and listening to wonderful music; and at the same time benefitting a worthy local charity. On December 18, from 4 to 6pm, Casa de la Cuesta will open their doors for the benefit of Casa de los Ángeles. From this glorious venue above the center of San Miguel, you can see spectacular views, visit the Bill LeVasseur’s world class mask museum, The Other Face of Mexico, at your leisure, and simply enjoy the warmth of good company and delicious goodies prepared by owner Heidi LaVasseur and her very capable staff. You will be helping local non-profit Casa de los Ángeles continue supporting single mothers and their families with daycare and other needed support services such as housing and scholarship aid. All of this for a donation of 150 pesos.

Back by popular demand is the local troubadour group Tuna Tradicional. Last December they had the crowd clapping and dancing with their unique renditions of popular Mexican music and familiar Christmas songs. Always a crowd pleaser, the group is comprised of seven friends who have played together for years. Their enthusiasm and joy in making music is infectious. In addition to having a wonderful blend of voices, each member is an accomplished musician, and all of this comes together for a fun and entertaining musical experience. If this group can’t get you in the holiday spirit, nobody can!
Here’s what you need to know to bring your out-of-town company or gather up a group of friends and come enjoy a delightful afternoon of warmth and music.
Casa de los Angeles is a community of caring people who gather to nurture children, serving the needs of the less fortunate, treating each person with dignity and respect as they work to make a better life for themselves. It began as a free daycare center in September of 2000 and has grown to be a community center in which mothers find the support they need to make a better life for their families. Besides daycare for their children, these families receive medical care, clothing distribution, scholarship opportunities, transitional housing, food bank…all done in a relationship of mutuality that respects the dignity of each individual.
