Empowering Families Luncheon
Have lunch with Latino Association or connect virtually to help empower families in Central Oregon
The Latino Community Association invites the public back to the beautiful Unitarian Universalist Fellowship for its annual Empowering Families Luncheon.
To comply with COVID-19 guidelines, LCA will limit the in-person fundraiser to 100 attendees. Board member Marcos Rodríguez will serve a boxed lunch from his Mexican and Peruvian menu with a vegan option.
Other supporters are invited to watch a live-stream of the event via a Zoom link. We encourage Bend residents to order a take-out lunch from Hola!, Rodriguez’s restaurant at 920 NW Bond Street #105 in Bend, 541 728-0069. People in other towns can pick up lunch from a Latino-owned restaurant in their area to enjoy while watching the program. Here is a list: https://tinyurl.com/luncheon-2021
The program will include the premiere of a new video that captures some of the stories of LCA’s work over the past 18 months, some recent milestones, and a glimpse at the future we envision.
Our luncheon raises funds to support English, computer and citizenship classes, employment assistance, legal clinics, income tax assistance, health insurance enrollment, dental and vaccination clinics, youth development and referrals to community partners.
“Our programs aim to remove the stones from the many paths our clients travel so that they can fully express and contribute their innate abilities and advance toward their goals,” said LCA Executive Director Bread Porterfield. “Empowerment is about offering resources and opportunities to facilitate the journey. We invite you to be a part of this journey.”
