|Thanks to our generous supporters and sponsors, LA Plaza’s Virtual Pobladores Awards Gala and fundraiser raised $230,000. Thanks to you, LA Plaza will continue to create virtual programming for all ages, future exhibitions celebrating the richness of our Latino culture, and keep our team working toward reopening when it is safe to do so. These vital funds are supporting local artists, and businesses and ensuring LA Plaza continues its important work in the community.
You can view the entire Virtual Gala, featuring musical performances by Los Lobos, La Marisoul and Jesús Martinez, acceptance speeches by Pobladores Awards honorees Castulo de la Rocha and Los Lobos, and greetings from such luminaries as Dolores Huerta, CA Secretary of State Alex Padilla, Cheech Marín and more by clicking here.
