La Peña is truly a special place that feels like family. It is authentic and important in it's history and passion for the arts. At every event that I have attended at La Peña, I have walked away inspired and have felt an extension of family there. I have been looking for ways to bring this depth of character and passion to centers in Seattle, WA.
