How do you follow up more than a decade of Latinitas’ enrichment programs for some of the city’s most marginalized girls, its signature annual photography auction event, and last year’s anniversary Quinceañera with an overflowing guest list of the city’s most influential notables – with the Party for Chica Power, of course!
Latinitas’ annual event has always been about the unexpected, creativity, and a celebration of Austin’s up-and-coming youth and the urgency to help them innovate, get access to the latest digital platforms and technologies, and elevate their goals and dreams!
This year delivers an evening of signature cocktails thanks to drink sponsors Campari, Tito’s Vodka, and Big Red, dinner, music from… the Chulita Vinyl Club DJ collective and a kermés-themed celebration at the new Austin Central Library.
What’s a kermés? Ker·mes ˈkermēz/ — A form of celebration, very similar to a carnival with several traditional activities. Normally outdoors.
Taking the kermés experience to a sophisticated level, Latinitas will present a cake walk with some of the city’s most in-demand delectable cakes, a bottle toss, cornhole game, Loteria, and a virtual reality piñata (!!!) with “grown-up” prizes such as elite alcohol tastings, jewelry, and some of Austin’s most delicious confections.
Latinitas will present its 1st Chica Power Award, sponsored by Bumble, to a Latinitas’ alum who is applying a “super chica power” she gained through Latinitas media and technology education programs in her everyday life. She will also be awarded a $500 scholarship. Event proceeds support 25 Club Latinitas programs at Title 1 schools and public housing sites, annual Chica Conferences, low- to no-cost camps, free family workshops at area libraries, and leadership development programs for teens.
