Scholarship Awards Reception

Our reception on August 9, 2011 honoring the first annual Amigas Latinas for College scholarship recipients was a big success. Held at one of our favorite locations, El Tiempo Cantina, many of ALC's friends and supporters joined in the celebration. All six of our awardees were present along with their families and friends. We wish the recipients the best of luck as they embark on their higher education journey. We also want to thank Roland Laurenzo, owner of El Tiempo, and all our other friends and supporters who helped make the event a wonderful celebration of the achievements of some outstanding young women.
