Conference Center at the Fairplex
Address: 601 W McKinley Ave, Pomona, CA 91768, USA

I am writing to ask for your support of the Latino and Latina Roundtable of the San Gabriel and Pomona Valley 16th annual Cesar Chavez breakfast fundraiser that will be held on Friday, March 27, 2020, from 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. (with registration between 7 and 8 am) at the Sheraton Fairplex Conference Center, Exposition Center 8, 601 W. McKinley Avenue, Pomona, CA 91768.  In the last year, the Latino and Latina Roundtable has moved forward in sustaining  an office and a director. As in the past, we have continued to advance our immigrant rights, community development, and education work through the commitment of dozens of volunteers and the resources that are raised from this yearly fundraiser.  In keeping with our grass-roots organizing character, we continue to keep the cost at a minimum to ensure that the tradition is in keeping with the celebration of the life of Cesar Chavez and the many leaders, from all backgrounds, who have historically given of their lives to ensure a future with justice and equity. In keeping with the tradition of honoring leaders in our region who have exemplified the principles and values of Cesar Chavez, the Roundtable this year is honoring: Teresa Romero, President of the United Farmworkers Union; Jeanette Ellis-Royston, President of the Pomona Valley Branch of the NAACP; Mario and Cecilia Suarez, posthumous award for their contributions as educators; and John Nolte, community-based lawyer (Community Star award as member of the Latino and Latina Roundtable).  In addition, Social Justice Scholarships will be presented to students from the region who exemplify the values of connecting their studies to community engagement and social change.

    I am writing to ask for your support of the Latino and Latina Roundtable of the San Gabriel and Pomona Valley 16th annual Cesar Chavez breakfast fundraiser that will be held virtually Friday, September 25, 2020, from 9:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.   Because of the coronavirus crisis, our organization was forced to postpone our annual Cesar Chavez breakfast fundraiser last March until September 25.  When we postponed it last March we envisioned that we could have the face-to-face event in September but with the spread of COVID-19 it became clear that this would be impossible.  Now, we will be holding a virtual event that will honor leaders in our region who have exemplified the principles and values of Cesar Chavez includingTeresa Romero, President of the United Farmworkers Union; Jeanette Ellis-Royston, President of the Pomona Valley Branch of the NAACP; Mario and Cecilia Suarez, posthumous award for their contributions as educators; and John Nolte, community-based lawyer (Community Star award as member of the Latino and Latina Roundtable).  In addition, Social Justice Scholarships will be presented to the following students who exemplify the values of connecting their studies to community engagement and social change:  Emely Andreo, Garey High School (to Cal Poly Pomona); Josue Garcia (Cal Poly Pomona); Presila Lua, Garey H. S. (to CSU San Bernardino); Facisco Villagomez (Univ. of LaVerne); Fernando Cruz Bonilla,  Ganesha H. S. (to UC-Berkeley.

    Our organization has historically been a volunteer organization that has relied on this one fundraiser to fund our efforts, which include advocacy, community events, and scholarships for local students.  More recently, our board has moved to develop a strategic plan to ensure the sustainability of our organization on a long-term basis.  As part of that plan, we have established an office, hired a director, and are looking at other means of support to fund our efforts.  It is in this context that I am writing to you to donate to our annual Cesar Chavez Breakfast.
