The Guadalupe Centers Blanco y Negro Awards Gala, our annual black tie event kicks off Hispanic Heritage Month festivities in Kansas City. The gala provides the Guadalupe Centers and its supporters an opportunity to honor outstanding individuals and institutions who have contributed to the growth and development of both the Guadalupe Centers and the local Latino community.
In addition the event raises much needed funding for one of Kansas City’s most critical nonprofits, which annually serves over 9,000 individuals and families through a wide array of programs and services in areas including Education, Health, Social Services and Youth Development.
The Blanco y Negro Gala is being held on September 21st at the KC Convention Center. The evening will begin at 5:30 p.m. with cocktails and appetizers, followed by dinner and awards ceremony at 7 p.m. ending with live entertainment at 9 p.m.
