Thanks to our generous sponsors and attendees our 8th annual Corazón Awards at Brazos Hall on February 4th was one of our most successful to date!
We raised over $185,000 to assist young Latinas and their mothers through the college application process and onto their postsecondary educational journey.
Con Mi MADRE's Corazón Awards honors individuals making a significant impact
on our organization and the Austin community through individual excellence
and high levels of accomplishment.
This year's honorees were the Texas Pioneer Foundation, Fayruz Benyousef, and Delia Garza. Led by emcee Sally Hernandez, news anchor with KXAN, the event was chaired by Vanessa Fuentes and Amber Carden.
Benefitting Con Mi MADRE's 11th-12th Grade Postsecondary Participation Program, monies raised ensure that more young Latinas succeed in obtaining postsecondary
education to become our future educated workforce and leaders.
