ANNUAL BENEFIT EVENT.

Noche de Estrellas benefit is a celebration of GALA's dedication to artistic vision and commitment to youth education programs. This special evening also honors remarkable individuals in the arts, philanthropy, and community who have demonstrated exceptional commitment to enriching the Latino community and fostering cultural opportunities for young minds. The funds raised during our initiative will play a crucial role in bolstering GALA's Paso Nuevo youth education program. This program serves as a nurturing and creative space, empowering young individuals to explore their cultural identity while simultaneously honing their artistic and academic skills to pave the way for future success. 

Noche de Estrellas 2024 will be held on May 29, from 6:30 to 10 pm, at the National Museum of Women in the Arts (1250 New York Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20005).
