If you thought about going to the Latin American Fiesta but didn't get around to buying the tickets, it's not too late! ACC needs everyone to make a HUGE EFFORT, inviting friends and family to ensure we have a full house on the 11th.
Also, there are still tickets available for the ACC Raffle: the draw has been postponed for until the 1st of June to allow more people to get involved.
 Please consider participating in one or both of these events to raise funds for a great cause! Full details below.
