An afternoon at Casa de la Cuesta
By Harriet Zucker
Have you heard about the local nonprofit Casa de los Ángeles? Casa de los Ángeles, founded in 2000, is a free daycare and safe haven for the children of single mothers who come from the outskirts of town to work, to sell their wares at the mercado or clean houses in San Miguel. Before the center was established these children were often left at home alone. Casa de los Ángeles has evolved into a community center where mothers find the support they need to create a better life for their families. Besides childcare, these families receive medical attention, scholarship opportunities, transitional housing, and a food bank, as we form relationships that respect the dignity of each individual.
¡Music, Munchies, and Margaritas!

If you are interested in supporting Casa de los Ángeles, as well as enjoying live music, great snacks, margaritas, and a tour of a first-class mask museum, then this month’s benefit event is just for you!
This event will feature the acoustic music of Wendy and the Lost Boys. The group draws from the roots of American music, including folk, blues, pop, country, and rock and roll. Its repertoire includes songs by Chuck Berry, Jimmy Reed, Sonny & Cher, Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell, Bob Dylan, the Beatles, Randy Newman, Lefty Frizzell, Robert Earl Keen, Townes Van Zandt, and Graham Nash. Formed early this year, the band features Wendy Sievert (vocals/guitar), Wade Ashley (vocals/guitar), Tom Driscoll (vocals/guitar) and Ron Incontro on bass. For this performance the band will be joined by George McConkey on harmonica.
Our venue, the beautiful bed and breakfast Casa de la Cuesta, is owned by Heidi and Bill LeVasseur. Come sit in the spacious courtyard filled with interesting folk art and enjoy the live music, free drinks, and delicious snacks. You can also come and explore Bill’s collection of authentic Mexican masks in La Otra Cara de México, the world-class mask museum that Bill curates himself. Don’t miss this lovely afternoon to benefit the children and families of Casa de los Ángeles!
