Milonga Para Los Ninos in Buenos Aires

An enterprising couple, John and Cheryl Lowry, in Brisbane (capital of Queensland for those who are not Aussies) set up a charity for children in Argentina some years back and have been raising money through milongas around Australia. Their milongas are always very well organised and the raffles are lots of fun....John has just written to let me know of a Milonga Para Los Ninos to be held in Buenos Aires on July 30... so if you are in Buenos Aires... here are the details.

"It’s a pleasure for me to let you know that Milonga para los Niños, an initiative born in Brisbane, Australia, will have a place in Buenos Aires, on July 30th at La Milonguita.
Since 2002 a group of Australian Tango lovers has been organizing in Brisbane on the last week of July, La Milonga para los Niños, to get funds for poor children in  Argentina and South America through a net all over the world.
El Hogar Los Horneros at La Reja, in Buenos Aires Province, will receive the money this time.
We thank some friends that have already donated some things to raffle that evening:
Laura Nicastro, a writer: a book that she has written.
Diana Safdie, Director of Jean Cartier Argentina: parfumes
La Casa de Alcira, a restaurant: a dinner.
Entre duendes y medianoche a radio program: a publicity.
We invite everybody who wants to collaborate by donating goods or services that can [be] raffled that night. You can contact with Graciela López, or  us.
We strongly hope that organizers of Buenos Aires and the provinces adhere to this charity proposal. You can contact Jude Gaunt in English or Spanish, via e-mail to or skype user name judegaunt, and/or Hernán y Mercedes Domini, a young Argentine couple that are the contact in Buenos Aires of our dear Australian friends to their e-mail
We are looking forward to seeing all, whether you dance Tango or not, to join this charitable initiative and share an evening full of joy, good music, exhibitions and raffles.
Sincerely yours,
