NEWSFLASH: First Ever “CELEBRATE ORGULLO” to showcase LGBT Hispanic Pride During Hispanic Heritage Month, Saturday October 1, 2011 on Miami Beach
From Sharon Kersten, Kersten Communications:
FIRST-EVER “CELEBRATE ORGULLO®” TO SHOWCASE LGBT HISPANIC PRIDE
DURING HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1 ON MIAMI BEACH
On Saturday, October 1, the first-ever “Celebrate Orgullo®” event will take place in Lummus Park on Miami Beach. “Orgullo” is Spanish for “Pride,” and this event celebrates the diverse cultural heritage and contributions of South Florida’s LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) Hispanic community
The event, taking place from noon until 6 pm at Lummus Park, between 10th and 11th Streets Miami Beach, will feature musical performances, folkloric dance, celebrity guests, drag performers, refreshments and vendor booths representing the both the non-profit and business community.
Since 1988, Americans have observed Hispanic Heritage Month – September 15 to October 15 – celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of those whose ancestors came from Central and South America, Spain, Mexico or the Caribbean. With Hispanics in Miami-Dade County comprising 65% of the total population, (2010 U.S. Census), Hispanic Heritage Month is widely popular in South Florida, with a myriad of events taking place throughout the month long celebration. As evidenced by the more than 40,000 people who turned out for Miami Beach Gay Pride this past April, there are a significant amount of LGBT and LGBT-friendly supporters in South Florida, and many are Hispanic.
Coincidentally, the theme for Hispanic Heritage Month 2011 is: “Heritage, Diversity, Integrity and Honor: The Renewed Hope of America,” therefore it is especially timely that the first Celebrate Orgullo® will truly celebrate the diversity of our community.
Celebrate Orgullo® is a grassroots effort, conceived and implemented by a group of volunteers who decided that it was time for Miami Beach to lead the way in honoring the cultural contributions of the LGBT Hispanic community. The committee unanimously voted to name the city’s mayor, Matti Herrera-Bower, as “Honorary Orgullo Queen” to recognize her support throughout the years.
There are several opportunities for companies and organizations to become involved and reach out to a lucrative market at Celebrate Orgullo®. Sponsorships range from $500 to $15,000, and a limited number of booths are available at $250 per space, or $150 for a non-profit organization. Complete details are available at http://www.CelebrateOrgullo.com or call Jorge Richa, (305) 673-4440, or email Jorge@celebrateorgullo.com.
The event is free and open to the public, and a portion of the proceeds from the sale of food and beverages will benefit the LGBT Youth Scholarship Fund of Miami-Dade Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce Foundation, Inc.
Members of the Executive Committee are Ivan Cano, Jorge Richa, Herb Sosa, Laura Veitia and Darvin Wlliams. On the Planning Committee are Lynn Bove, Luis Gonzalez, Joe Granda, Yubi Herrera, Scott Holland, Josue Kant, Sharon Kersten, Josue Santiago, Luiz Rodrigues Soraya Swingen, Peter Tapia and Hernan Valverde.

ABOUT NATIONAL HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH
The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover the 30-day period from September 15 through October 15.
The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September18, respectively.”

About Kim’s Good Karma Group
Kim’s Good Karma Group, founded by Miami philanthropist Kimberly Shenker-Bacardi, is a charitable organization consisting of herself and like-minded friends dedicated to helping those less fortunate around the world. Ms. Bacardi became aware of the essential work that Food For The Poor (FFP) has undertaken in Haiti after witnessing her neighbor, Dr. Jules Cadet, tirelessly raise funds over the past few years for his countrymen. As Ms. Bacardi is well aware of how important fundraising is for any organization, she decided to go where her heart guided her. Kim’s Good Karma Group was born.
After visiting Haiti on a mission trip with Food For The Poor and The Florida Marlins, Ms. Bacardi recognized the need to help. She visited many of the FFP villages, orphanages, and facilities they constructed and witnessed the conditions most Haitians were living in. She was moved by her experiences so much that she decided that the first fundraising effort that Kim’s Good Karma Group (KGKG) would take on would be for for the construction of the Kim’s Good Karma Group Community Center within the Marlins’ Homes For Haiti Village, built by Food For The Poor.
The KGKG community center will be a multi-use facility, providing vocational training classes and community meetings, as well as offering a safe and sturdy shelter during hurricane season. 的 am so excited for this opportunity because it does not stop here; the more money we raise, the more lives we can positively affect. The plans are to have a minimum of 25 homes, sanitation, a water source and community center. Our goal for the community center is $40,000, and the more we give, the more we can add to help more families with additional houses, solar lighting, and agriculture.” Kim remarked after her trip.
For information on how you can help KGKG or for interviews please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
