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, performance or similarly artistic gigs and/or recognition in the media. The names of HOLA members and Friends of HOLA are listed below in boldface. To see what other HOLA members are doing currently, click here.

Elaine Del Valle, shown at right, won a Bronze Telly Award in the Education category for co-producing the film short The Smallest Step. The Telly Awards honor the very best film and video productions, groundbreaking online video content, and outstanding local, regional, & cable TV commercials and programs. Del Valle won the award with fellow co-producer William D. Caballero, who also won a Silver Telly for "Use of Animation" for the same project. For more information, click here.
