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.
