La Fiesta Americana, the annual fundraiser for Wellness House of Annapolis, is a summer party with a Latin flair.  The party will be held in the main plaza at Homestead Gardens, complete with fountains, gardens, and overflowing colorful flowers designed for the occasion.  This year’s “fiesta fare” will be donated by several of Annapolis’ favorite restaurants, including Jalapenos, El Toro Bravo, Azure, West Kitchen and Tavern, Stan and Joe’s, Saucy Salamander, Killarney House, and Sin Fronteras Café.  Wellness House of Annapolis also welcomes the return of the lively musical performance by Trio Caliente, whose music featured on the NBC television show “SMASH!”

Brian Riddle, President of Homestead Gardens, and his family are pleased to be the Honorary Chairs of the 2013 La Fiesta Americana.   Homestead has been working with Wellness House of Annapolis to give back to the community and the many families that are touched by cancer. “We look forward to hosting this year’s La Fiesta Americana and continuing to work with Wellness House in the future to support the organization in offering comfort and support to local families that are dealing with cancer,” said Riddle.

“We are so excited that Homestead Gardens is hosting La Fiesta this year. We needed to move because the event had definitely outgrown is original location.  And, thanks to the generosity of Homestead Garden, our sponsors and donors, almost 100% of the proceeds this year will come directly to Wellness House for greater funding our free cancer support programs, “said Executive Director, Pam Cole Finlay.  “This is just so wonderful—we’re thrilled.”

Wellness House of Annapolis offers 23 free cancer support services including family programs; support groups; individual counseling services; therapeutic art; educational seminars; healthy living programs; and mind, body, spirit classes.  All programs and services are open to anyone living with or affected by cancer.
