On Saturday, December 2, 2017, the Mohawk Valley Latino Association hosted its 14th Annual Gala at Daniele’s Banquet Facility in New Hartford. This event is held each year to celebrate Hispanic Heritage, and to honor local community members. This year’s celebration honored several local Latino businesses: El Barajo Restaurant, Gloria’s Ice-cream, G & J Beauty Salon, Bueno’s Transportation, Mi Casa Restaurant and Innovative Interiors. Entertainment was provided by Ritmo Caribeño children cultural dancers, and music by local DJ Richyy. Pictured here Sonia Martinez and award recipients Bueno Transportation.
