It’s the closing weekend for Eveoke Dance Theatre‘s Las Mariposas. Inspired by author Julia Alvarez‘s novel, In the Time of the Butterflies, it’s the story of four sisters living under the dictatorship of General Trujillo in 1960s Dominican Republic. Three were murdered for their participation in the resistance movement; their story is told by the surviving sister.

Second Chance provides life skills training, job readiness, and job placement assistance for people who are unemployed or homeless. All proceeds from the event will benefit the organization’s food pantry and holiday meals program.
This year’s open house features San Diego chefs and culinary professionals developing drinks and dishes using gingerbread as their inspiration. Attendees will get to ‘vote’ for their favorites and can participate in a silent auction to win gingerbread houses designed by the chefs. Festivities include a canned food drive and an opportunity drawing.
A $20 donation at the door gets you five tasting tickets and two tickets for the opportunity drawing. Attendees are asked to consider bringing non-perishable food items for Second Chance’s food pantry program.
