Help keep Latino artists at the forefront of our profession. Click on the above part of this notice to our donation page. Help us meet the challenge. All donations are tax-deductible.


For our 35th year, please mark your gifts "HOLA@35."

UPDATE: We are, as of this writing more than 40% of our way towards our goal of raising $10,000.
