Every June, since 1993, the Latino Center on Aging (LCA) holds the Golden Age Awards presentation. This eventful gathering has taken place in highly prestigious landmarks of the City of New York: The Lincoln Center (1993), The United Nations (1994, 1995 and 1996), and until the year 2001 at The World Trade Center (107th Floor). Since 2003 it is being held at the Inter-Continental, The Barclay, 111 East 48th street, NYC.

The Golden Age Awards 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.

Now, we invite you to review our pictorial account of this elegantly elaborated Gala celebration, a LCA tradition. If you are not here yet, one of you friends might be.
