The Latino Community Association (LCA), will host their 3rd Annual Gala de Oro on April 21st in Bend.  This year, they’re adding multiple special features to raise the experience to new heights.

Their Latin American-inspired fundraising event will feature a VIP Dinner from 6-7:30pm with signature cocktails, craft beer and wine, guest speaker Alberto Moreno, Chair of the Oregon Commission on Hispanic Affairs, a client testimonial, cultural performances, and a live auction.

This will be followed by a less formal small plate dinner from local chefs and masquerade ball from 7:30-11pm with live Latin music from Portland’s Pura Vida Orchesta, dance performances, margaritas, a silent auction, and raffles.

Funds raised will help LCA expand their workforce education and training services aimed at increasing family incomes and strengthening local businesses. Workforce services include English classes with childcare, English tutoring, computer training and citizenship classes.

The Latino Community Association’s Gala de Oro is a special opportunity to engage in their mission to empower Latino families to thrive. Above all, it is an important fundraising event that makes it possible to provide lasting, life-changing services for families while also building bridges across cultures to unite and strengthen our communities.
