This year’s HPRA PRemios Dinner on Thursday, Sept. 21 at the Park Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles will offer guests a surprisingly refreshing twist to the organization’s annual scholarship dinner.

HPRA members and guests will have an opportunity to network with industry professionals in a festive, elegant setting with live music, cocktails, Latino art auction and delicious, authentic Latin cuisine.

HPRA just secured Chef Laura “Lala” Diaz to cater this year’s event. Chef LaLa is an awarding winning chef, humanitarian and Hispanic spokesperson for the 5-A-Day program, American Diabetes Association and many other organizations and author of Latin Lover Lite, the first-ever authentic guide to cooking healthy Latin favorites.

Live music by DomingoSiete, urbanized Latino classic music, and a silent art auction by Self Help Graphics featuring local artist Peter Tovar will round out this year’s event. The much-anticipated HPRA Raffle is bound to get everyone excited, as the committee is working on some great prizes this year.
