Noche Bella (Beautiful Night)

Latino Network's annual gala to celebrate the accomplishments of the Latino community in Portland. 

We are currently planning for 2017. Stay tuned for a date & venue announcement soon!

Our gala raises money for all of our programs to serve Latino youth and families. We also honor an extraordinary Latino/a leader from the community for their accomplishments with the Aguila Award. 

The gala also highlights amazing Latino/a owned businesses and services in Portland metro. Catering in 2016 was provided by Mayahuel Catering (Tamale Boy). Guests enjoyed a three-course Latin American gourmet dinner! 

In 2016, entertainment included our very own Ballet Folklorico youth, Edna Vazquez, and Dina y los Rumberos.
