Marisol Bejarano, LETI’s director of health and wellness programs, served as the night’s emcee. “These types of events are what allow the community to come together and learn about culture in a way that is both educational and exciting,” she said.

LETI Executive Director Rosario Reyes also shared remarks at the event, adding that “we continue to grow our partnership with the EWC with programs and events. We are currently working together on hearing and vision screenings and vaccine clinics.”
