LELA hits the road

Salsa LelaLELA (Lead, Encourage, Live and Act), the symbol of the altruistic side of the Salsa and Salsa tour, has recently turned 3 years old. She started a a little piggy bank at Salsa and Salsa in Mazatlan in 2010, filled with hope, positivity and love for the community. Since then LELA has collected over $30,000 USD for many organisations and charities world-wide and continues to touch the hearts of many guests who visit Salsa and Salsa in Mazatlan, Cozumel and Cabo San Lucas.

Many guests who joined Salsa and Salsa and donated to LELA themselves, suggested their favorite charity to the Dancing Chefs. The simplicity of paying it forward has been the driving force behind this initiative. LELA has supported small and big charities alike.
