Lead Encourage Live Act (LELA)

We are a group of Dancing Chefs committed to enriching the lives of those less fortunate on this ever changing planet. Lela the Pig was created after the earthquake that hit Haiti in 2010. Her goal is to collect donations from guests who attend The Original Salsa and Salsa Tour in our 3 locations: Cozumel, Mazatlan and Los Cabos. Lela the Pig along with all the amazing donors have raised more than $100,000.00 USD and counting... Lela the Pig continues to donate each month to a different cause around the globe.


Who said pigs can't fly ?!

you must believe. . .

Like so many of you, I have been working my little hooves off with a variety of amazing causes and charities these past years. Every time I do something for others my heart grows bigger and bigger, full of compassion. The first words that came to mind were: Lead, Encourage, Live and Act. (LELA)

Leadership in my opinion is one of the greatest characteristics one can hold. Having leadership supports the idea of encouraging others to make a difference, living a life filled with compassion and acting on our instincts to donate to the difficult situations that occur around the world.

And even though I am just one beautiful pig, I believe that the smallest of all acts can truly make difference in the world.

"My girlfriend and I attended Salsa & Salsa in April 2010 and it was one of the BEST times I've ever had. I can't remember having so much fun! These ladies were INCREDIBLE and I'd highly recommend the experience. It made Mazatlan my favorite stop on the entire trip. Thanks so much for the memories!!!"
