    Cubans on the Island sure love Capitalism!

    Who is the recipient of this money?

  • It's probable a vegan dinner.

    Leave it up to CANF to host a $100.00 plate dinner for Yoanni. Why are they doing this? CANF has become a non-player. Jorgito, Jr. [who has had run-ins with the law] destroyed the once power organization. I can understand if CANF was poltically active and needed to do this in order to finance their day-to-day expenses, but they don't. CANF no longer has 50,000 members, they no longer, even, update their website, so what's the purpose of this dinner? Is it just to make a profit? Wouldn't suprise me, look at how Jorgito [who is already a multi-millionaire] sold the Freedom Tower afer Jorge Mas Canosa [who had purchased it with the intent of creaing a Cuban History Musuem] sold it at a profit

    $100/$1000 still doesn't hold a candle to the estefans' fundraising obamafest.

  • asombra

    Gee, I wonder who'll be there pawing her and seizing the photo-op. Actually, I don't wonder. The only question is who won't.

  • Ricardo

    Not interested in her anymore. Biscet is the man.

    The "insurgent" Fidel also went on a foreign tour to drum up support (read money) for his, uh, cause. Starting in October of 1955, he visited New York City, Tampa, Miami, Key West and Nassau for a series of fundraising speeches. Do with that what you will.
