PADRES Contra el Cancer


A Weekend of Latin Style and Entertainment

PADRES Contra el Cancer is a non-profit organization that is committed to improving the quality of life for Latino children diagnosed with cancer.  The charity hosted a weekend gala filled with fundraising events and cancer awareness workshops. The gala was topped off with a glamourous dinner and auction complete with musical performances.

The event took place at the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas, where celebrities including Eva Longoria, George Lopez, Edward James Olmos and Alejandra Guzman came together to support the organization’s cause to help Latino parents dealing with childhood cancer.
