About the Event
You are cordially invited to our Ninth Annual Quetzal Award Gala honoring Patricia Sobalvarro in recognition for her contributions to the Latino community throughout the State of Massachusetts. Patricia is the Executive Director of Agencia ALPHA, a non-profit organization located in Boston, Massachusetts that integrates immigrants into the social, political, and economic fabric of society and improving their quality of life in the United States.
This year’s keynote speaker will be Joseph Molina-Flynn, President of the Rhode Island Latino Political Action Committee (RILPAC) and practicing immigration attorney.
We invite you to join us at 6:00 p.m. for a cocktail hour, immediately followed by a seated dinner and award ceremony. The Gala continues to support new generations of emerging leaders from local communities by awarding several scholarships to college students of Guatemalan descent.
