“Latin Fever Ball”
I was honored as the Guild Chair for the Latin American Association’s largest annual fundraiser, Latin Fever Ball, which took place on Saturday, Oct. 3, 2015, at the InterContinental Buckhead. Laura and Rutherford Seydel were this year’s Chairs for the event.
We broke all records for the total amount of money raised for the LAA at this year’s gala, and maintained the tradition of being the best party in Atlanta. Our goial was $275,000 and we raised over $430,000. I am very proud of and thankful for everyone at the LAA and members of the Guild for their role in helping to make this happen.

This week I was asked by Aníbal Torres, LAA Executive Director to be the Guild Chair again in 2016. Many of the guild members echoed the sentiment and since we made such a great team, and achieved amazing results; I had to say ‘yes’ to such a deserving organization. I look forward to successful 2016 Latin Fever Ball.
