Ballet Hispánico will honor Latin music superstars Emilio & Gloria Estefan with the Nuestra Inspiración Award; legendary fashion designer Carolina Herrera with the Toda Una Vida Award; and businessman and community activist Marcos Torres with the Civic Inspiration Award; at its annual CARNAVAL Gala on Monday, May 7, 2018 at The Plaza Hotel's Grand Ballroom, 768 Fifth Avenue, NYC. Cocktails begin at 6:30pm and dinner and dancing commence at 7:30pm. Proceeds, which totaled over $1.1 million last year, benefit the creation of new choreographic works, much needed scholarships for young people, and immersive dance programs for communities around the world.
"Ballet Hispánico is deeply honored to celebrate four of the most influential Latino leaders of our time," said Board Chair Kate Lear. "Pioneers in their respective fields, these individuals are shining examples of the power of the immigrant experience. Their contributions have literally changed the world."
"As an organization that was founded to give voice to the Latino diaspora, Ballet Hispánico is thrilled to celebrate these four beacons of grace, strength and abundant talent from our community" said Eduardo Vilaro Artistic Director and CEO.
