The Abrazo Boricua Banquet in New York will take place this coming Thursday, June 5, 2014 from 7:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. at the Eastwood Manor Restaurant located at 3371 Eastchester Road on the corner of Boston Road in Bronx, New York.
The Banquet will be dedicated to the Honorable Santos Seda “Papichy” the Mayor of Guanica, Puerto Rico; Ms. Aida Rosario Director of Communication Univision 41; and Mr. Hector Ramos Reporter and Senior Citizens’ Advocate.
This annual activity which is sponsored by Senator Rubén Díaz together with Senator Jeffrey Klein, Assemblyman Marcos Crespo and Assemblyman Luis Sepúlveda, is completely free of charge for the community.
According to Senator Díaz, “many people in our community lack the necessary resources to pay for the different activities that the Puerto Rican Parade organizes during this Puerto Rican week. Therefore, in order for some of them to be able to attend a banquet and socialize with the people who are coming to participate in the parade, we organize this banquet free of charge for the first five hundred people who arrive and offer them a night of Puerto Rican culture, food, entertainment and the opportunity to meet the Mayors and dignitaries who come from Puerto Rico.”
