Events : 2009 LULAC Legislative Gala (Feb. 11, 2009)
Posted by admin on 2009/2/14 12:20:00 (1451 reads)

 

On February 11th, 2009, LULAC hosted its 12th Annual National Legislative Awards Gala, during which LULAC honored Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, Senator Robert Menendez and Congresswoman Hilda Solis. We were proud to also have present at this event our Congressman Steve Driehaus from Cincinnati!

“Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison will be receiving the Legislative Award,” said LULAC National President Rosa Rosales. “The President’s Award will go to Senator Robert Menendez and Congresswoman Hilda Solis. LULAC deeply appreciates all of their outstanding efforts to champion the cause of Hispanics in the areas of education, civil rights, health, the economy in Congress as well as their leadership on immigration.”

The Legislative Awards were established to recognize individuals who championed those issues that are most important to the Latino community. Gala attendees include Members of Congress, ambassadors, federal officials and Hispanic leaders.

During the evening, LULAC was also celebrating its 80th Birthday!
