Beso Lounge and Bronx Mama give back to neighborhood kids

Beso Lounge, a local nightclub and bar in the Norwood section of the Bronx, teamed up today with Nicole Perrino's "Bronx Mama" to host an early Halloween Dance Party, bringing dozens of kids (and parents) in their costumes to celebrate in a safe environment. Other local activists and small business owners, such as Windows of Hip Hop, Inc's Nilka Martell and Bronx-PR's Joyce Hernandez (and her son Caleb) came to show their support for kids having a safe space to get together.

Bronx Mama (http://bronxmama.com/) coordinated the event with Beso Lounge's owners, Gino Pacheco and Eli Garcia, to host the event, the first of its kind in the neighborhood. Bronx Mama is a lifestyle website for Bronx parents who are looking to find events, resources, information on fashion, music and more to do with their children throughout the Bronx.

Giving children a safe space to have fun (and giving parents somewhat of a break) is important, especially when we here so many tragedies that happen in "supposed" safe spaces in the Bronx. The difference? Parents are a part of the solution to ensuring their kids' safety.
 
A big shout out to all those parents, groups and businesses that go the extra mile to making their communities safe and fun.Check out more pics on our Facebook Page at Bronx On The Go.
