Nearly 500 supporters celebrated the 2012 Tacos y Tacones Gala recently at the Hilton Americas, making the event the most successful in AAMA's 42-year history.

Under the dynamic leadership of Gala Chairs Martha and Demetrius Navarro, YOU, our generous underwriters, auction sponsors, bidders and donors raised more than $400,000 to help Latino students and families pursue and achieve their potential.

Honorary Chairman John Nau of Silver Eagle Distributors gave a live auction trips twice to increase the success of the evening. And matching funds from Starbucks for the Fund a Dream appeal generated lots of excitement and hands in the air for bidding.
