Event:

VIRTUAL Destino

The Latino Center of the Midlands will host its signature fundraising event, Destino Dinner, Saturday, September 26. For everyone’s safety, the event will be all-virtual this year. While the format will certainly be different, you will still see the culture, flavor, and heartwarming stories that make the Destino Dinner a much-anticipated annual tradition. It will feature a Familia Y Comunidad award, interviews with young people and adults served by the Latino Center, a raise-the-paddle, silent auction, and a virtual dance-off.

Proceeds from the event will support the Latino Center’s health, education, and workforce development programming, including new efforts in response to COVID-19. The pandemic has hit Omaha’s Latino community particularly hard. More than 40% of people testing positive for coronavirus in Douglas County are Latino, and Latino families are much more likely to rely on service-sector jobs that have seen furloughs and lay-offs.
