International Dinner Highlights Cultural Diversity

CORPUS CHRISTI - You only have a week left to get your tickets for the annual International Dinner, hosted by the Instituto de Cultura Hispanica de Corpus Christi. This year's event will be held on Friday, May 23rd at the St. Pius X Catholic Church Hall (5620 Gollihar Road) beginning at 6:30 PM.

In addition to a diverse spread of food from the many Hispanic cultures represented in our area, there will be musical entertainment and an opportunity to learn more about The Museum of Hispanic Culture. The organization was founded in 1976 and is located in the Lichtenstein House in Heritage Park. The goal of the non-profit group, according to their website, is to promote a better understanding of the diverse cultures represented in our community through programs which include art exhibits, folkloric displays, English and Spanish recitals, cultural celebrations and fund-raising activities which foster an atmosphere of good will and friendship.

Reservations are suggested, as space is limited, and may be made by calling either (361) 855-4315 or (361) 244-3960.
