THE 49TH ANNUAL EL CONCILIO GALA

DINNER AND AWARDS CEREMONY

 

Friday, November 10, 2017

From 6:00 - 9:00 PM

at Wine & Roses in Lodi, California

El Concilio is celebrating its 49th year as the largest Latino community-based agency in California's Central Valley and premier social services provider to the area's underserved, working low-income, and at-risk communities.

 

Founded in 1968 as one of the nation's first organizations dedicated to aiding migrant workers with immigration and social welfare issues, El Concilio has grown to become the Central Valley’s heart and home for those wishing to achieve a better life. Today we assist over 25,000 individuals and families annually though our various programs and services, regardless of ethnicity, race or immigration status.

 

We would not be what we are today were it not for the support of people like you.

 

We invite you to join us on November 10th when we will host our 49th Annual Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony at Wine and Roses in Lodi, California. We hope you will join us, as we honor four unique and diverse voices for their immense support of our agency, their years of public service and community leadership, and who share in El Concilio’s commitment to the community.

 

Assemblymember Susan Eggman ~ "Amiga of the Year"

Andy Prokop ~ “Amigo of the Year”

Comerciantes Unidos ~ “La Raza Award” recipient

Natalia Orfanos ~ “Unsung Hero” honoree

 

The Gala celebration will be an elegant evening to remember. The night's soundtrack will wonderfully accent conversations between old and new friends. The martini and wine bar will feature premium alcohol options. The dinner menu is being custom catered to our exact standards. The food will be delicious, fresh and beautifully plated, and there will be favorite desserts.

 

Our annual gala helps raise the crucial funds necessary for us to continue our work. We thank you for your continued support and generosity, and look forward to celebrating with you at our 49th Annual Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony.

FEATURING COMEDIAN

CARLOS OSCAR

 

"Carlos Oscar is so funny, he's a comic’s comic.”

       - Gabriel "Fluffy" Iglesias!

 

A Tonight Show and Comedy Central favorite, Carlos Oscar is a lean, clean joke machine. From the moment he hits the stage his family-friendly motor mouthed, fast paced delivery and facial gestures will have you all rolling with the punchlines. Oh, and yes, his mother-in-law stories are true -- don't laugh.

 

Perched on a stool and perpetually leaning in toward the crowd, he quickly becomes the guy everyone in the room wants to gather around because he’s got the best stories.

 

Carlos moved to Los Angeles to embark on a career in the entertainment industry, after serving 4 years in U.S. Air Force, when he bumped into comedy. "I was doing a comedic scene in class at UCLA. The immediate laughter response from the audience sparked me into pursuing stand-up comedy." 

 

With his own sitcom in development, Carlos is on the verge of making a huge impact across America.
