"It is inspiring to have so many talented and admired Latino entertainers willing to come together in celebration of our nation's 44th President, the Honorable Barack Obama, and of the historic role Latinos played in this election," stated Esther Aguilera, President and CEO of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI), one of the co-hosts of the Latino Inaugural Gala. "This will truly be an impressive display of the musical and cultural contributions that our community has to offer."

"Bringing together such an incredible variety of entertainers will ensure that the Latino Inaugural Gala will be, without a doubt, one of the greatest and most memorable inaugural celebrations to date," stated Ramona Martinez, Chair of the DNC Hispanic Caucus, one of the organizations co-hosting the event.

With additional celebrities, entertainers and high-profile political figures expected to announce their participation in the coming days, tickets are expected to sell out (for more information on ticket sales, visit www.LatinoInauguralGala2009.org. Additional information on celebrity entertainment can also be found on this website).

"Voto Latino is thrilled that so many celebrities participated in the 2008 election by marching voters to the polls, phone banking, throwing concerts, and walking precincts registering new voters," said Maria Teresa Peterson, Executive Director of Voto Latino, another organization co-hosting the Gala event. "The Latino Inaugural Gala is a celebration of our community's collective effort that by working together across all disciplines we can achieve a voice for a new generation of Americans. We must continue our momentum to ensure that this political awakening translates into political power that includes quality education, healthcare and more."

Additional Co-Hosts of the event include the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO), the Congressional Hispanic Leadership Institute (CHLI), the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), and the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC).

All proceeds raised from the 2009 Latino Inaugural Gala will go to support the vision of creating a National Museum of the American Latino in Washington, D.C. This gala's beneficiary nonprofit, Friends of the National Museum of the American Latino, is dedicated to helping take the idea of such a museum from dream to reality.
