The Eva Longoria Foundation Pre-ALMA Awards Dinner Presented by Target
raised funds to support the Foundations mission to help Latinas
build better futures for themselves and their families. The dinner took
place on Saturday, Sept. 15 at Beso in Los Angeles. Attendees included Eva
Longoria, Felicity Huffman, George Lopez, Daisy Fuentes and Lance Bass.
Guests arrived at the Pre-ALMA Awards Dinner for cocktails followed by a
dinner and remarks from Eva Longoria, as well as Laysha Ward, Community
Relations president at Target. A student and entrepreneur representing
the Foundations programs also shared their stories. Chef Todd English
prepared an exquisite four-course meal for guests.
The Eva Longoria Foundation was established in 2011 by actress, activist
and philanthropist Eva Longoria. The Foundation gives Latinas the tools
to succeed through education and entrepreneurship. This commitment is
shared by Target, a five-time sponsor of the National Council of La Raza
(NCLR) ALMA Awards. Target is committed to celebrating the
accomplishments and cultural richness of the Hispanic community through
the support of cultural organizations and programs across the country.
