We are also honoring John Vasquez, the Senior Vice President of Global Real Estate of Verizon with the, Corporate Leadership Award, for his commitment and dedication to ASPIRA of New York, our students and families, and the many professional associations he is involved in which are focused on the betterment of our world.
This year marks ASPIRA of New York’s 54TH Anniversary. The occasion promises to be an inspiring night focused on recognizing corporate achievers, as well as honorees who have made a difference in the Latino community.
ASPIRA, which means “to aspire,” was founded by Dr. Antonia Pantoja in New York City and has grown from a local organization to the nation’s largest Latino nonprofit dedicated to educating and developing the next generation of Latino leaders. At the Circle of Latino Achievers gala, we will celebrate ASPIRA of New York’s extraordinary success in providing more than 500,000 young people the tools they need to learn, grow and achieve.
With Latinos being the fastest growing population in the United States, this isn’t just the right thing to do – it’s the smart thing to do! Support of ASPIRA of New York has netted excellent outcomes: more than 95% of Aspirantes graduate from high school and of those, 90% enter college.
We hope you will join us in supporting ASPIRA of New York. Attached you will find a list of sponsorship opportunities for the Gala. We would truly appreciate you championing this grand event, which will help raise funds for scholarships and programming that will positively impact the lives of students and their families.
The future of all business – and our nation– rests on their success…and your support. Thank you.
