About the Latino Ball

Latino Connection, a social-determinants-of-health marketing and communications firm specializing in reaching multicultural communities in PA and beyond, is proud to present for its 10th year the Latino Ball.

In 2013, George Fernandez — CEO of Color & Culture and Latino Connection — partnered with award-winning magazine, TheBurg, to create Lo Mejor de Lo Mejor (LMLM). LMLM recognized businesses and corporations for their ongoing efforts to provide excellent customer service to Latinos in South Central Pennsylvania.

Four years later, LMLM became the statewide celebration, Latino Ball, awarding individuals who are making great strides towards the wellness and livelihood of their communities throughout the commonwealth.

For organizations and businesses looking to better understand and reach Latino audiences, the Ball offers a great (and very fun!) opportunity to connect with and learn from Latino leaders and professionals.
