In order to raise money for scholarships, the foundation hosts two awards galas annually: Salute to Outstanding Women in Action coinciding with National Women’s Month in March, and Celebrate Hispanic Heritage during National Hispanic Heritage Month in October. In each event, community leaders are awarded and honored for their exemplary role in their respective endeavors.
In each gala there is also a simultaneous silent auction with over 100 items. All the proceeds go directly to the foundation’s funds for scholarships.
How to Help
The Salute to Outstanding Women in Action and the Celebrate Hispanic Heritage awards galas are La Prensa Foundation’s most successful fundraising events. This is only possible thanks to the great help of corporate and individual sponsorships. There are a few ways to be part of these benevolent events: Sponsoring the event, contributing items for the silent auction, attending a gala by purchasing a ticket, and general donations.
