Latino Leaders Luncheon Series

Convention Series

Cafecito Series

Consists of two events during the national Democratic and Republican party conventions to present the Eagle Leadership Award to a worthy Latino leader from each political party.   An evening reception in Milwaukee and a luncheon event in Chicago will provide sponsors a branding presence at each convention by supporting a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to bringing leaders together.  Package sponsor opportunities are offered to include both events. The series is an outstanding network opportunity with Latino delegates, elected officials, community leaders, corporate partners, community activists and more.
