Thank You for Supporting the 2012 Hispanic Heritage Luncheon!

Posted on November 05, 2012 by Manuel Escobar

HBAA's annual Hispanic Heritage Luncheon was held on October 26, 2012 at the W Hotel in downtown Austin.  A big thank you to:

  • All of our wonderful sponsors!
  • Our tremendous keynote speaker, Judge Jimmie V. Reyna of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
  • Our special guest speaker Justice David Medina, and Justice Eva Guzman for introducing Justice Medina.
  • Our cultural speaker Sylvia Orozco, Executive Director of the Mexic-Arte Museum.

We think this year's program was the best yet!  The luncheon raised another $20,000 for the scholarship and other programs of the HBAA Charitable Foundation.  We cannot thank you enough for your support!

Below is a selection of photos from the event.  We will see you next year!
