The night was dressed in bright and vibrant colors with the presence of Alebrijes which arrived at the Gala Dinner offered by the Paso del Norte Mexican Cultural Center (CCMPN) and the General Consulate of Mexico in El Paso, in the exclusive special events hall of El Paso County Club.
In a festive Mexican atmosphere and folklore, hundreds of attendees, along with the organizers, enjoyed an evening in which they shared the achievements obtained in terms of cultural promotion in recent years.
In the great event designed under the theme of “Los Alebrijes”, local artists gave life to fantastic figures created by the imagination of Mexican craftsmen.
At the ceremony, the directors of the CCMPN, headed by its president, Enrique Moreno, presented acknowledgments to community leaders, such as Cecilia Levine and Consul Marcos Bucio, for their commitment and participation in the various programs, events, and festivities that reflect the rich traditions of Mexico and Paso del Norte´s community.
The guests, in addition to sharing food, dance, and music, participated in the silent auction in which a great variety of art pieces representative of Mexico was exhibited.
