Noche Bella (Beautiful Night)
Friday, September 21, 2018 | 5pm | The Nines Hotel
It’s our favorite night of the year, the most beautiful night—Noche Bella! This annual gala is a night for us to come together and dance, eat and toast the accomplishments of our Latino community.
Our gala raises money for all of our programs to serve Latino youth and families. We also honor an extraordinary Latinx leader from the community for their accomplishments with the Aguila Award.
The gala also highlights amazing Latinx-owned businesses and services in Portland metro. Catering this year will be provided by Tamale Boy. Guests will enjoy a three-course Latin American gourmet dinner!
This year, entertainment included our very own Ballet Folklórico youth, Edna Vazquez, Tequila Highway PDX and Dina y los Rumberos.
A huge thank you to our donors, staff, board of directors, volunteers, sponsors and vendors for your help in making our event truly special!
We raised over $334,000 this year - this is the most we’ve ever raised at Noche Bella!
