Obama Makes Return Appearance At Latino Gala

WASHINGTON - For the fourth consecutive year, President Barak Obama will address Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute members at their annual gala in Washington, on September 14th.

CHCI Chair Rep. Charles Gonzalez also announced today that the President will be joined by First Lady Michelle Obama at the the largest Latino gala in the country.

“CHCI is honored to have the President and First Lady join us again this year to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month and recognize the tremendous leadership we have in the Latino community,” said Gonzalez.

The group feels the theme of the gala, “Keeping the Promise: Unity, Strength, Leadership,” reflects the strength and contributions of Latinos to the United States.

Also at the gala, Gonzalez will present the 2011 CHCI Chair's Award to the Honorable Hilda Solis, Secretary of Labor, and the Honorable Ken Salazar, Secretary of Interior. The 2011 Medallion of Excellence for Leadership and Community Service Awards will be presented to entertainer Vikki Carr and former NASA astronaut and engineer José Hernández, in recognition of their contributions to the Latino community.

GRAMMY-winning salsa artist Luis Enrique will headline gala entertainment with tropical music legend Gilberto Santa Rosa performing at the post-gala concert.

Latin music performer Prince Royce will open the show and sing the national anthem while Teresa Rodriguez, Univision television anchor, will serve as the celebrity host for the evening's events.
