"This is going to be an extraordinary evening," says Barry Maketansky, president of the Sanctuary's board of directors. "La Cubanita's Orchestra is one of the best bands in Northern Arizona, and no one will be able to stay off the dance floor when they take to the stage. We have some incredible auction items that have been donated by generous local businesses that believe in our cause. Dancing in the Moonlight will be the social event of the spring."
