El Centro 50th Anniversary Scholarship Fundraiser

El Centro de la Raza invites you to join them as they celebrate their 50th anniversary with a scholarship fundraiser on Friday, March 22 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the Embassy Suites.  The fundraising goal is to increase their current scholarships and to build a strong foundation to continue awarding scholarships in the future.   Sponsorship opportunities range from $25 for an individual ticket to $3,000 for a table, a full-page program ad and more. 

El Centro has played a large part in the lives of many of our UNM students, staff, faculty and alumni.  Cheo recently talked to Rosa Cervantes and two students, Elizabeth Ruiz Castañeda and Daniel Torres-Chaparroabout the upcoming event.

"On behalf of El Centro we would like to thank you for your continued support and partnership throughout these years," says Rosa Cervantes, El Centro director.  "We would like to humbly invite you to celebrate with us on this big day. This celebration marks a huge milestone for our gente, and we would be honored to have your presence and your pledge to support our present and future students."
