Delaware Valley's Most Influential Latinos in 2011

Earlier today Impacto Latin Newspaper and the Multicultural Affairs Congress presented their annual Delaware Valley's Most Influential Latinos event at the Hyatt @ Penn's Landing. The event honored 50 emerging and current leaders in the region. Categories included 10 under 40, Latino Leaders, Movers & Shakers and the Most Influential.

This year's (new) honorees included:
  • Edwin Desamour, MIMIC
  • Cristian Hernandez, Greater Philadelphia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
  • Michelle Angela Ortiz, Visual Artist (and all around cool person lol)
  • Carlos Giralt Cabrales, Consul of Mexico in Philadelphia
 But of course we can't honor Philadelphia's leaders without mentioning Maria Quiñones Sanchez, Kenneth Trujillo, Alfredo Calderon, Ruben Amaro, Jr. among others. This year's ceremony also included the launch of the DVMIL commemorative book which features all honorees from the past six years. Not sure where you can find the book since it was only being sold at the event, but you can probably contact Impacto. Congrats again to all the honorees and here's to another year.
