HOLA Member Bochinche

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

Rhina Valentín, shown at left, has been selected as one of the recipients of Comité Noviembre's Lo Mejor de Nuestra Comunidad (The Best of Our Community) Award. Comité Noviembre recognizes outstanding individuals who are the unsung heroes of our community. These awards honor Puerto Ricans whose pride in their heritage and strength of character have empowered themselves and inspired others to make a significant impact on our community. The awards ceremony will happen on November 1, 2012 (November is Puerto Rican Heritage Month) at the headquarters of 1199 SEIU located in the theater district of midtown Manhattan.
