Night of the Americas

Every Spring, La Plaza hosts our unique Night of the Americas event to raise community awareness and support for La Plaza’s impactful programs. During this Latin American themed evening celebration, over 400 of our city’s business, public, and community leaders learn more about La Plaza’s work, savor a delicious ethnic dinner, and enjoy dancing under the stars. The students and families served by La Plaza have a chance to share their stories with the community. Finally, La Plaza names the annual Hispanic American Service Award winners and awards annual college scholarships through the La Plaza Scholarship Fund.
