Sassy Salsa Night at the Republic to benefit the Samaritan Inn
Shake your booty for a charitable cause and support the Samaritan Inn on August 15. Come on, all the cool people are doing it.
On August 15, the Samaritan Inn will be hosting "Sassy Salsa Night" at the Republic. All of the proceeds from the event will go to benefit the Samaritan Inn, which is Collin County's only homeless shelter.
Sassy Salsa night will consist of a Latin themed evening of dancing, tapas, and mojitos, in addition to the Republic's other well-known frozen drinks (their Bacardi Frozen Mojito was voted Best in Dallas 2005). Advance tickets are $30 and include two frozen drink tickets, tapas, & entertainment. Tickets at the door are $20, but don't include the two frozen drink tickets. Since the drinks generally run $7, advance tickets are recommended. For those of you that are a bit swankier but also have that big, charitable heart, there are two private VIP areas that can be rented out for the night for $1000 each which include seating for up to 20 people, pour-your-own bottle service, tapas, and all the entertainment you can handle.
