LOCATION: Renaissance Tulsa Hotel & Convention Center
This year’s event was an amazing success, setting Gala attendance records. More than 160 people attended the event which kicked off with a cocktail reception and silent auction and an evening of festivities hosted by Ana Berry, Tulsa area media personality. A four-course gourmet dinner was served with Spanish wine selections, and the Award of the Americas was conferred to Western Printing for its 10-year support of the Foundation. Members of Tulsa Opera shared Spanish selections, followed by an auction to raise money for student scholarships. The evening culminated in salsa dance lessons, live music and dancing.
BENEFITTING: Proceeds from the event support the Hispanic American Foundation of Tulsa’s mission to cultivate and promote Hispanic cultural and educational programs in the Tulsa area. This money underwrites the Foundation’s annual college scholarships program as well as funding Hispanic arts and other programs. These have included Tulsa Ballet’s Leaps in Motion, Tulsa Tech’s Spanish-language Small Business Academy and San Miguel’s English-language Learner program.
The Foundation does all this without any paid staff and with an all-volunteer Board.
