Tapas at the Mansion

 Got 40 bucks lying around? If so, are you interested in sampling local tapas, complementary bubbly and live jazz, benefiting local youth and checking out the governor's digs? We've got the event for you. Youth Shelters, which has a number of programs for youth in crisis, celebrates its  30th anniversary with a fundraiser, Tapas at the Mansion.

Several local restaurants—including Restaurant Martín, Osteria D'Assisi and The Compound—provide the tapas,  Russell Scharf and Jazz Explosion provides the tunes and Gov. Bill Richardson provides the house.

Proceeds from the event benefit Youth Shelters' many important programs, including the Education Initiative, a plan to hopefully provide GED training in house. According to Development Director Melissa Frank-Williams, "We have found out, through community collaboration such as with Santa Fe Community College, that there are long waits for GED training and assistance. About 55 percent of kids we see need this service." With this program, Youth Shelters can be more useful to the kids its already serving.

Help youth and learn if the curtains match the drapes…y'know, at the mansion.
