HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to "gossip." In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members who are getting acting and performance gigs. The names of HOLA members are in boldface.

Venuz Delmar will be acting in a live event for the YWCA Hartford. The event, the 17th annual In the Company of Women luncheon, will take place on Tuesday, March 20, 2012 at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford. The guest of honor for the luncheon is Rosie Pérez. For more information, click here.

The film A Journey to Homeland was accepted as an official entry into the Green Bay Film Festival. Written and directed by Manuela Senatore, it stars Ydaiber Orozco, Ron Sarcos and Teresa Yenque (an all-HOLA member cast, shown above from the left to right). The festival will take place at the Radisson Hotel and Conference Center on March 23, 24 and 25, 2012 in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
