SMCLA is honored to have DAMA Tequila as a sponsor of our Holiday/Meet the Bloggers event at Cross Campus on December 18! If you are a fan of tequila, then you are in for a treat. DAMA has created a special “SMCLA Margarita” to be served at that evening to quench your thirst, in addition to a few other festive cocktails. *
DAMA Tequila is the world’s first female luxury tequila and the perfect complement to any celebration. DAMA doesn’t compromise quality on any level and taste is no exception. Made from 100% blue weber agave, one sip by the discerning tequila aficionado and DAMA’s mark of distinction is instantly evident having respected the time-honored process in making an exceptional tequila.
Not only has DAMA been the belle of the ball at events like the LA Film Festival, MTV Movie Awards, LA Latino International Film Festival and the Action Icon Awards, DAMA puts their money where their mouth is and supports charities such as the sCARE Foundation, Safety Harbor Kids, and Rally for Kids.
