Sunday, April 6, 2 to 6 p.m., singer/songwriter Beth McKee and Audubon Park Garden District hosted Orlando’s 2nd Swamp Sista La La at East End Market with Florida based musicians, locally influenced food & beverages, a Gospel Brunch at noon, an open air artisan market and, of course, the Swamp Sistas!
Swamp Sistas is a growing, diverse community of over 2,200 women, most of whom hail from the American South, though not necessarily. Artists, story tellers, performers, caregivers, teachers, entrepreneurs and much more, we embrace our roots while marching to our own drumbeat. When we gather we call it a La La which is an old Creole term for a party with a purpose. The purpose of our Swamp Sista La Las is to have fun with our friends and families while raising money and awareness for community organizations and concepts that are dear to us like fighting local hunger with locally grown food. The most recent La La was on April 6, 2014 at East End Market in Orlando, Florida and raised money and awareness for three local organizations: P.E.A.S., Hebni Nutrition Consultants and 2nd Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida.
