Hispanic Heritage Month is a national celebration of the history and cultures that Hispanic and Latin Americans have made to American society and culture.

In honor of the month, Los Barrios de Amarillo is hosting a virtual event that will honor and recognize local leaders in our Amarillo community.

The “Reflecting on the Past, Looking to the Future,” luncheon will award local leaders and volunteers along with awards like Young Rising Star, Lifetime Heart of the Barrio, Business Community Service, and Hispanic Woman and Man of the Year.

The event will be streamed live on Facebook on October 14th at noon.
