The Latino Center on Aging 25th Anniversary and Golden Age Awards Gala 2016

The Latino Center on Aging (LCA) will celebrate its Twenty-fifth anniversary and its 26th Golden Age Awards presentation on September 30th at the Coral Gables Country Club, Coral Gables.

The 2016 Golden Age Award recipients are: Betty Jiménez, recently retired from Miami-Dade County; Hon. René García, FL State Senate;  Marco Carrasco from West Gables Nursing & Rehabilitation Service; Linda Quick from Quick Berstein Connections Group; María Cristina Regueiro of Florida National University; and Luis Collazo from Florida Assisted Living Association (FALA).

The Banquet promises to be an eventful black tie affair with extensive media coverage. 

The LCA’s 25th Anniversary and Golden Age Awards Gala is chaired by María Hidalgo from VITAS Healthcare.

The Golden Age Awards were established in 1993 in New York and are given to individuals who have made significant contributions to the Latino/Hispanic communities throughout the world.  Awards are given for effective leadership, lifetime contributions, public policy initiatives, corporate contributions and community involvement.

The Latino Center on Aging was founded in 1991 to enhance the living conditions of Hispanic elderly through education and advocacy.  In South Florida the LCA has developed an intense activity during the past four years by organizing a South Florida Advisory Board, a South Florida Hispanic Coalition for Aging and a monthly radio segment on La Nueva 88.3 FM.  In addition, the LCA has organized and implemented three conferences on Latinos and Alzheimer’s in Spanish.
