With over 120 people in attendance, the Hispanic Council 7th Annual Gala: "Latin Night 2015" on September 26th was a great success. Thanks to a great support from people, organizations, and business of our community, the event met its goal of raising $15,000 to create a Scholarship Fund to help Hispanic female students of Collier County Public Schools interested in pursuing a STEM education: Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
The theme of this year event was the culture, music, and food of Colombia. It was a wonderful evening of networking, dinning, and dancing for a great cause.
Past beneficiaries of our fundraising efforts include Autism Eden Services of Florida, Catholic Charities, Boys and Girls Club, The Safe & Healthy Children’s Coalition of Collier County, Grace Place for Children & Families, and Youth Leadership Collier.
