On Thursday, December 6, 2016, HBA-DC held its Holiday Party & Toy Drive at the Capo Italian Deli Speakeasy.  The event was co-sponsored by SABA-DC, APABA-DC, FBA-DC.  With about 70 people in attendance, members, family and friends gathered to celebrate the year’s accomplishments.  In addition, HBA-DC members obtained or donated many great prizes, which were raffled to raise funds for Mary’s Center, a non-profit clinic that provides comprehensive health, social, and education services to immigrant families regardless of ability to pay.  In addition, representatives of Mary’s Center were on site to collect cash donations and toys. 

HBA-DC raised over $2,000 for Mary's Center, the highest amount ever raised at this event, in donations, toys, and raffle sales. Thanks to all the generous donations and supports of the event!  

Special thanks to Social & Special Event Committee co-chairs Diana Baquero and Jazzirelle Sepulveda and Board members Leila Levi, Ben Hernandez-Stern for organizating the venue and donations and thanks to our President Richard Rodriguez for Deejaying (for the 4th year!), MC-ing, and administrating the event!
