Fuerza, a benefit for Cafe Con Leche will honor 10 Latin@s in Pittsburgh


Café Con Leche’s is holding a benefit to support its upcoming season of community-based work and events on August 15 at The Hardware Store, 744 E. Warrington Avenue, Allentown.

The event will also honor 10 Latin@s making a difference in Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh loves lists, and in that spirit, Cafe Con Leche put out a call earlier this summer for nominations of Latin@ leaders in the city who are impacting their community. They were overwhelmed by the response.

By celebrating these individuals, Cafe Con Leche will highlight the sabor y fuerza, flavor and strength, the Latin@ community brings to Pittsburgh. The 10 individuals selected will officially be recognized for their leadership at Fuerza on August 15.

Café Con Leche’s Fuerza awardees are: Giselle Fernande, Jose Miguel Juarez, Carolina Loyola Garcia, Geña Nieves, Paulina Jaramillo, Monica Mendez, Marisol Wandiga Valentin, Keyla Nogueira Cook and Cindy Fernandez.
