Margarita Nights 2.0

FRIDAY, APRIL 21, 2023 • 6:00PM – 10:00 PM



Thanks to all of our supporters, tickets for Margarita Nights 2.0, Sippin’ & Salsa for Cedar Valley Hospice are officially sold out! Those of you who are unable to join us can still participate in our silent auction at the link above. 


Set your mind on island time and join us for our happy-hour style event, Margarita Nights 2.0, Sippin’ & Salsa for Cedar Valley Hospice – this time, with a twist!


Come dressed in your laid-back island attire and set your mind on island time to enjoy a night out of fun and fundraising for Cedar Valley Hospice. Salsa band Orquesta Alto Maiz will have you moving to the beat of the steel drum band – you’ll feel just like you’re on a beach in Mexico. Wanna learn some Salsa moves? Grab a dance instructor and they will guide you to the steps of the music. Otherwise, just sway and groove to the island vibes!


Gather your friends and family to join in the festivities on Friday, April 21 at 6 p.m. (doors open at 5:30 p.m.) inside the Hilton Garden Inn in Cedar Falls. Enjoy a tasty taco bar, nachos, flavored margarita mixes, liquor pull, cash raffles and a variety of island fun with Paulie the Parrot!
