"This is a milestone that is significant not just in the nonprofit world, but anywhere. And in honor of this, we want to make this year's Sangria on the Southside bigger and better than ever before."

This year's Sangria on the Southside will feature three live music acts - Mariachi Aventurero de Dalton, Dance Brasil, and the Latin band, Sabor.
