GALA Hispanic Theatre will host its annual Noche de Estrellas benefit event on Monday, April 16 at 6:30pm. Held at the Art Museum of the Americas, the event will commemorate the Inter-American Year of Culture in collaboration with the Organization of American States.

The honorees include singer/songwriter Ricardo Montaner for the enormous impact he has had on Latin American music and for his charitable work on behalf of children with special needs, Janet Farrell for her exceptional leadership uniting arts and business, and American Airlines for its outstanding corporate philanthropy.

Proceeds from the event will go towards GALA's Paso Nuevo program, a year-round arts and academic enrichment program for at-risk Latino teens in the District of Columbia.

Noche de Estrellas will feature a buffet, silent and live auctions, performances, and Latin dancing with a live DJ.
