    Get your taste buds ready for one of the most deliciously unique fundraising events you will ever attended. The 10th Annual Mole Throwdown, hosted by Centro Cultural Aztlan, is a culinary experience blended with art to promote Chicano/Latino Art and Culture in an innovative way that benefits Centro Cultural Aztlan’s year-long programming. Mole is traditionally prepared for special events, bringing together friends and families. Mole is a delightfully rich tasting dark sauce infused with the flavors of chili peppers, chocolate, and about 25 or more spicy ingredients, and then lovingly poured over turkey or chicken. Indulgent mole dishes will be prepared and generously donated by local restaurants and local chefs for your taste buds to enjoy. Cerveza (beer) will be iced down and served to complement the meal. A tequila tasting bar will be provided by Salud Tequila Bar, and Tito’s Handmade vodka will be serving a cocktail to refresh your palate.  Patrons will be asked to vote for their favorite recipe, and a new winner will be announced! In addition to the sampling of mole, there will be a Silent Art Auction featuring the works of artists who have supported Centro Cultural Aztlan for over three decades. These artists’ contribution is their way to show their gratitude to an organization, which focuses on promoting Chicano/Latino Art and Culture. The 10thAnnual Mole Throwdown promises to be an exciting fundraising event sure to satisfy its patrons with good food and drink while promoting and contributing to an organization dedicated to supporting Chicano, Latino, and Indigenous art.
