Our Annual Puerto Rican Festival Awards Gala this year will be held on Saturday, September 17th at the Sheraton Philadelphia Society Hill! We’re excited to once again host this event in celebration of local Hispanic heritage and cultural pride and welcome our community members and award nominees, Latino leaders, government figures, corporate executives, media personalities and heads of community-based organizations.

The theme for this year’s Puerto Rican Festival is ” The Power of Our Voice – El Poder de nuestras voces,” a theme that will be present at our Gala. It is important to bring awareness about the Puerto Ricans on the island who are impacted by the Fiscal and Economic Crisis in Puerto Rico. We also recognize the many adversities Puerto Ricans in the United States face each day. We have a voice, and we have an opportunity to stand up and ensure we continue to have a vibrant and strong Latino community today and in the future generations to come.

At the gala, Concilio will also present several annual awards and honors, including: Citizen of the Year, Lifetime Achievement, Latino Youth and Community Service awards.

PECO will serve at the Gala’s title sponsor.  Additional corporate sponsors include 6ABC, Univision 65, Temple University Health Systems, Goya, Coca-Cola, McDonald’s, Health Partners Plans, and Serralles USA.  All proceeds from the event benefit Concilio, providing family, health and cultural programs and services for over 50 years.  If you would like to contribute to the silent auction that will be held during the gala, please fill out our silent auction sponsor form.

We hope to see you there!
