Noche Bella (Beautiful Night)
On September 20th, 2019 we celebrated our favorite night, the most beautiful night—Noche Bella! Throughout the years, our gala has brought communities together to raise funds for all of our programs which serve Latino youth and their families.
Every Noche Bella we honor extraordinary community leaders for their accomplishments with the Aguila Award. This year we honored the following remarkable leaders with the 2019 Aguila Award:
Serena Cruz, Executive Director, Virginia Garcia Memorial Foundation
Eddy Morales, Gresham City Councilor
Holly Levow, Social Venture Partners
This Noche Bella was truly a night to remember. We served our guests delicious Latin American food catered by Tamale Boy, danced the night away with Dina y los Rumberos and Mariachi Portland, and was delighted by the graciousness of our very own Ballet Folklórico Corazones Alegres.
On this night, we came together to dance, eat and toast the accomplishments of our Latino community.
None of this would have been possible without the continuous support of our donors, staff, board of directors, volunteers, sponsors and vendors. We thank you for your help in making our event truly special each and every year!
