You are cordially invited to join us for our annual fundraiser breakfast at El Colegio High School on December 13th. We will be honoring three amazing women who have accomplished exemplary work in not only the Latinx community, but the metro area and Minnesota at-large.

Susana de Leon is an attorney who has helped countless families navigate the legal system, taking on more than a fair share of cases pro bono.

Ramona Rosales is a strong advocate for education and innovation, identified by the MN Association of Charter Schools' as a Minnesota Charter School Pioneer, and the co-founder of Academia Cesar Chavez Charter School.

Maria Silva is a prominent small business owner and a pillar of economic growth in the Latinx community, starting El Burrito Mercado in 1979 as small market and building it into two restaurant dining locations, a catering service, and a market for Latino groceries and Mexican artisinal works.

We are also thrilled to announce an exciting project in partnership with the PRAXIS Institute, so please be sure to join us on Friday for the kickoff to this amazing opportunity for our students and community!

Registration is free, with a suggested donation of $40 to help support academic programming at El Colegio High School.

We hope to see you there!
