CAUSA's Zocalo Night Gala, A Complete Success

At yesterday’s Zocalo Night Gala, we had over 350 people in attendance, great food, great entertainment and great weather. A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who came out to support CAUSA!

During the evening, CAUSA honored several individuals and organizations with American Dream Awards. The awards are given to individuals who make sure that the American dream is not only a dream, but a reality. Honorees included the Latino Business Alliance of the Willamette Valley, Patricia Cortez, McKenzie River Gathering Foundation (MRG), Recursos para Derechos Humanos (Resoruces for Human Rights), Willamette Family Medical Center,  Pastor Gail McDougal and Diana Simons of  KUNP Television Portland.

Entertainment included live music by the Woodburn High School Mariachi Band, Salsa Dancing Lessons with Rodolfo Ortega and a performance by Los Chinelos.  We also had delicious authentic food from local vendors, handmade piñatas and crafts from southern Mexico.

We have included a selection of photos above. Please link here for additional images:

A SPECIAL THANK YOU also goes to all of the volunteers, donors and the following sponsors who made Zocalo Night a great success!

The Zócalo, pronounced "sokalo" in Spanish, is the main plaza or square in the heart of the historic center of many cities across Mexico. It is a place for celebrations, ceremonies, food, dances, live music, and civic engagement.
